    Minecraft RemoteToolkit
    -Less downtime, more fun for your players, more power to you!

    Are you a Minecraft server administrator? Do you value up-time and stability? Do you fancy the ability to remotely control your server, both in-game and out of game, in a myriad of useful ways from a plethora of different devices?
    If you answered yes to any of the above, then the Minecraft RemoteToolkit is for you!

    What the Minecraft RemoteToolkit Plugin and Wrapper do for you:
    • Provides almost perfect server uptime with no need for action from an owner/administrator!
    • Have your server save and restart at any time period with configurable restart warnings!
    • The Toolkit guarantees a restart within the set restart period, even if your server crashes, becomes unresponsive, or encounters a "SEVERE" exception!
    • Remotely control every function of the Toolkit, even from your smart phone!
    • Full remote console access via telnet with support for multiple terminal types!
    • Telnet daemon conforms to current Telnet related RFCs!
    • Customizable alert messages!
    • Fully extendable though 3rd party modules!
    • Full feature set works with most craftbukkit builds!
    • Most features work with any Minecraft server variation, even vanilla!
    • Telnet can be disabled!

    Well i am using 97% memory with the toolkit running and without it 61%
  3. Offline


    That's a bad metric considering that java will almost always end up using the amount of memory specified by the -Xmx flag over time. What command are you using to invoke the toolkit? If you are using the included script, have you made any changes to said script?

    java -Xmx30M -Xms30M -XX:MaxPermSize=40M -jar Minecraft_RKit.jar USER:pASS

    In that case, there is no issue here unless you find that the bukkit process is using more memory than you set with the -Xmx flag.

    hi, i received the error ( socket closed) when using the UDP Client? how to fix this?

    okay scratch that last error message i fixed it.. its because i didn't port forward the remote 25561 port..

    but now when i try and connect i get this error (response:authentication_error)

    i can connect to the console via telnet remotely.. but i cannot connect through the UDP client via the computer or remotely via my Iphone..?

    So why is it using more memory when I run the toolkit?
  8. Offline


    Try using

    There is no straightforward answer to that question. All I can say is that it is not unusual, unless you see memory usage greater than what you set with -Xmx. Remember that as a rule of thumb, you should always assume that java will end up allocating all the memory into its heap that you tell it to.

    Howdy, I was wondering how I am supposed to save each save... meaning, can I make it so that when the server saves every 4 hours, it saves a copy of the world folder each time instead of just overwriting it? Also, getting this error.

    Hi! I encountered one problem using your tool. I connect to my server with putty, run and when I close putty, server stops. I figured out a workaround by modyfying the invocation
    (cd "$DIRECTORY"; screen -dmS minecraft java -Xmx30M -Xms30M -XX:MaxPermSize=40M -jar Minecraft_RKit.jar ${USER}:${PASS})
    but I still find it very confusing.

    Do you have any idea why it couldn't load my plugin in?

    How would I set this up for a windows server that doesnt allow .bat to be uploaded? (Xenon server)

    Heyho @drdanick

    what's about:
    restart-time-left - Reply to players asking for the restart time. NOTE: This is not implemented yet!
    And the Console-Colors?
    Some very rare Plugins give me colored-output in the Console, like Commandhelper

    Little Request:
    Option to translate or shorten the time, for e.g. autorestart messages.
    (Minutes=Minuten, Seconds=s etc...)

    Quick update:
    Bugfix is working. RemoteToolkit is still at 18 Threads

    Can you add support for commands instead of messages as you could put /say or /broadcast depending on what the server owner prefers?

    I assume you're talking about backup support. Unfortunately, backups are not directly supported at this time, but people are free to write a module to do it. Also, please make sure you read the installation steps in the documentation carefully. It appears that you are placing Minecraft_RKit.jar in your plugins folder, when it should actually be placed in your server root directory.

    Try manually adding a user with .useradd

    Not if you don't show me the error you are getting.

    Are you able to set the server invocation arguments? (i.e. are you able to have it launch a .jar other than craftbukkit.jar on startup?)

    With regards to restart-time-left, that feature is coming in R11. R10 does not have the infrastructure to support it.
    As for console colors, the issue is that since a recent jline update, bukkit has begin removing color control codes from console output when jline is disabled. As for CommandHelper, are you saying that it still prints colors to the console while you are using the toolkit?

    Thank you for the suggestion. :)

    Does this auto - save the whole server or just all the worlds? I need a whole server backup :p

    Cheers Darthmineboy,

    It does a /save-all.
    For backups you have to use an other plugin or do it with e.g. a cronjob.
  21. anyway to translate the MINUTES and HOURS to my main language?
    Thanks in advance. If you can add this on the next version I would love it and love you xDD

    I love this!


    Edit: I connected via telnet on the Terminal Emulator app, so I added this to the wiki for others.

    Edit 2: As a reply to #2245 and #2246, I don't see colours. I am running from the batch file on Windows 8 (running a small server off my main rig for a few friends). I see the colours without the wrapper though. No big issue really, just makes some things easier to read in the console.

    The jLine-support, will that be in a next version? I do a lot through console and missing mij arrow-keys and other stuff... Any idea as when it might be in?
  24. Offline


    Just updated, now i cant do anything. The plugin doesnt accept my user/pass combination and i cant connect via telnet. It worked before I updated.
  25. Offline


    I don't know if this is a wrapper issue or 1.3.1-R2.0 issue. In the past 24 hours of using 1.3.1, roughly 5 or more lines appear to be deleted while watching the console. Any one have ideas?

    Any way to add colour to the messages? I tried the & colours, but they didn't work.

    the plugin takes MASSIVE amounts of ram. it actuelly crashes the server.
    normally i have 1800MB/2048MB remaining ram after just starting server.
    with remote toolkit it is 1500MB/2048MB.
    when a big event occours like creepersday where mobs all turn to creepers, instead of going own 75MB of RAM it goes down about 3/400!
    what is causing the problem? :(

    just to add a little more info this is when i use (renamed it) the ./ instead of the ./ .

    edit: also, the main thread frose on the server, and it didnt restart.
    why's that?

    EDIT by Moderator: merged posts, please use the edit button instead of double posting.

    Delete users.txt in the toolkit directory and re-add any users you had.

    Could you elaborate?

    Have you modified rtoolkit.bat/.sh in any way? The plugin itself uses virtually no memory, and the wrapper is explicitly limited to approximately 70MB.

    i dont think so.

    DIRECTORY=$(cd "`dirname "$0"`" && pwd)
    (cd "$DIRECTORY"; java -Xmx30M -Xms30M -XX:MaxPermSize=40M -jar Minecraft_RKit.jar ${USER}:${PASS})

    there is the contents of that im using.

    This is about the best I can show an example with. It happens sometimes when pressing enter but also occurs on its own. It has happen to me while I'm typing something, however, I can still run the command even tho it removes it from the console and they still show in the logs.

    This is how it normally looks:
    Show Spoiler


    To this. It looks like something is hitting the backspace. And no, no one else is in the console.

    Heyho drdanick,

    Update ;)
    Look at the console with #2350:
    There are colors!
    Not all colors, but the most.
    BUT I can't see my typed text in the console,
