Plugin v4.0.0 - GUI v2.0.0 - Console v2.0.0
RemoteBukkit allows admins to, with the help of a plugin, remotely use the server's console. You do this by running a client on you computer and you provide this client with the hostname and port on which the RemoteBukkit plugin's server is running. Of course you will also need to provide the client with the server's username and password (set up in the plugin config file) for security.
So, provided the server has the RemoteBukkit plugin installed, admins can remotely use the Bukkit Console to control the server and execute Bukkit console commands server side.
RemoteBukkit does support multiple, simultaneous, connected clients.
Major Plugin Update v4.0.0
The latest plugin release (v4.0.0) adds support for CB v1.7.2.
Major Plugin Update v3.0.0
The latest plugin release (v3.0.0) adds support for multiple users.
Minor Plugin Update v2.5.0
The latest plugin release (v2.5.0) adds a number of highly requested features as well as a fix for a critical exploit.
Simply place the plugin in the standard Bukkit plugin directory and it will automatically generate its configuration the next time the server is run. The config file format is very simple, but offers several flexible options. The defaults are:
port: 25564 verbose: true logsize: 500 users: - user: username pass: password
All avaliable options and their descriptions are listed below.
|port||25564||The port on which the RemoteBukkit server will listen (this MUST be different to the Bukkit server's port number)|
|verbose||true||Whether or not RemoteBukkit will produce verbose logging information (in the form "client X dispatched command Y").|
|logsize||500||The maximum number of log lines to send to a client upon successful connection.|
|users||(list)||A list of the users which are permitted to connect to the RemoteBukkit server. The syntax for defining multiple user entries can be found in the example below.|
A more complex example configuration file can be found below (for demonstration purposes).
port: 6001 verbose: false logsize: 12 users: - user: escortkeel pass: secretpassword - user: bukkitserver pass: thepassword - user: minecraft pass: server
RemoteBukkit offers a very simple and easy to use GUI client which you can use to connect to the plugin. Just double click on the GUI's jarfile to run it. The GUI features a self-explanatory interface where you supply the hostname, port, username and password of the RemoteBukkit server.
Run the GUI with no arguments to open the Login Dialog. Run the GUI with the following arguments and it will attempt to use the supplied parameters to login automatically:
Use: [hostname:port] [user] [pass]
--help- Prints this help message.
If you prefer to use a console-based application to connect to the RemoteBukkit plugin you can too! The console argument syntax is very simple but the program but will print help information if you supply no/the wrong number of/invalid arguments:
Use: [hostname:port] [user] [pass] <switches>
--help- Prints the help message.
--nolog- Instructs the server not to send any log information to the client.
--exec <command>- Sends <command> to the server and then terminates. Useful for scripts. Make sure that you surround commands containing spaces in inverted commas (e.g. "say Hello, World!").
Telnet Client (advanced)
RemoteBukkit also supports telnet connections. Just connect to the normal server port as you would with the console or GUI clients and then supply the server's username and then password on separate lines, followed by a third, blank line.
$ telnet [hostname:ip] [user] [pass] [blank line]

What a great plugin!
Cool feature! Thanks :)
Haha, you would be correct. :D
I intended to link you here.
Thanks, but I think you forgot to include a link. I'd be happy to test that out on my server and report back!
In my case, for the time being, I just replaced line 47 of ConnectionListener.java with
Obviously not too flexible, but it worked.
No problem! I've amended the documentation. ;)
I've just added the "
--exec <command>" switch to the console client. That should let you run a single command through cronjobs easily enough. :)
Thanks for your response.
I was looking for a scriptable solution to stop the server. I wrote my own java app to do this. It connects to RemoteBukkit, send the credentials, waits for the log to print then sends the command(s). I two cron jobs one that stops the server at midnight and another that starts it at 12:05.
If RemoteBukkit triggers the player_command event it would be no problem rewriting my commands. Does it is?
Thanks for your help guys, I went with the tunnel option :)
One thing that was slightly confusing to me at first were your examples above saying "hostname:ip" where it should be "hostname:port".
Thanks for the useful programs!
Currently only "tunnels" (such as SSH) are supported.
Hmmm, interesting ideas, I'll investigate.
You can use a console, GUI or telnet client. Please take a look at the "Use" section in the above documentation. :)
In your first code snippet, you need to remove the "list" on the end of all of the parameters in order to get it to work.
Then, after the client is running, you can send the list command just like how you would in a normal server console.
From looking through the CommandHelper source code, I believe I've found the cause of your problems. CommandHelper's command detection code is super-hacky and doesn't conform to the way that the rest of the Bukkit server detects commands. Ultimately that means that when RemoteBukkit informs the server that a client wishes to perform a command, CommandHelper doesn't realize and just does nothing. I'll see if there is anything I can do with RemoteBukkit to get this to work, but for a proper fix CommandHelper will need to be changed.
If you are using a Linux server (Linux client is optional) you can use SSH to connect to the server. SSH is encrypted and very save. I also use this way when I'm not at home (because my server is running on a machine at home). To use that, copy the RemoteBukitConsole client to the server's hard disk, connect to the server using SSH (on windows clients you can use putty. windows itself is not able to run SSH unlike Linux) and open RemoteBukkit. If you plan to do this many times you also should create a bash file that does this for you, so you don't need to run the (e.g.) "java -jar ./RemoteBukkitConsole.jar localhost:25564 root 123456" command by hand every time. If you need further help please ask me or anyone else who knows about SSH and how to use it.
Are you planning on implementing any encryption?
There are two ways.
Does that help?
Will it be possible to make sessions that are "read-only"? And can you please make multiple users possible? That would be great :) even If I like this plugin already
this may be a stupid question but how do i actually connect to the server? I installed the plugin version and supplied the information for it but what program do i use to view it? can i just use cmd from the other computer or do i need some other outside client to use RemoteBukkit?
