RCON is disabled on Minecraft servers by default, so you’ll need to manually enable it. Here’s how:
- Stop your server
- Head to Files ->
enable-rcon=falseand set it to
- To secure RCON, change
rcon.passwordto a secure password and
rcon.portto a new working port (Network -> Create Allocation)
- Save the file and restart your server
And voilà! RCON is now setup for your server and secure!
