Rcon command list

Posted: September 9, 2013 in Quake

For those of us that are lucky enough to be in a position to run a Quake server there are a number of tools at your disposal to help make the job more manageable.
One such Tool is Rcon which enables admins to authenticate and then send commands to their quake server, wherever it happens to be located, and the command will be executed as though the admin is effectively sitting at the terminal. The command will take the following form:

rcon command [options]

for example

rcon changelevel e1m7

the above command would force the server to change the current map to e1m7. To try and help the Quake Admin community here some more commands for use with RCON:
