Has anyone been able to get the ingame rcon commands for PB to work. I have PB active in both the command line and in the server.cfg.

I cannot locate a pbsv.cfg file. When I try the command pb_sv_ver, the only response is a print with my ip and port, but no other info.

Has anyone been able to get this to work.

First, make sure you start PB from your server Command line like this:
Code:
mohpa_server.exe +exec configs/tdmServer.cfg +set sv_hostname
"TDM Server 1" +set sv_maxclients 20 +set punkbuster 1
**Notice the server cfg is exec'ed BEFORE the additional commands.


Next create the cfg by entering this command into the console:
Code:
pb_sv_writecfg
Now if you go into the server's game directory you should see a PB folder that contains the pbsv.cfg file.

I have a shortcut to my server.exe, the target line read "C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Medal of Honor Pacific Assault(tm)\mohpa_server.exe" +exec server2.cfg +set punkbuster 1

I still try to use the rcon command but all I get back is 123.123.123.123:12304:pRINT

Then nothing

I know punkbuster is running because I see in console window:

Loaded script: 'global/mp_announcements.scr' codeLength: 2106
PunkBuster Server: pb_sv_SsNext = 502875 (0 to 999999)
PunkBuster Server: pb_sv_LogNext = 344 (1 to 999999)
PunkBuster Server: 0 Power Players loaded from C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Medal of Honor Pacific Assault(tm)\pb\pbpower.dat
PunkBuster Server: 0 PB Rcon Filters loaded from C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Medal of Honor Pacific Assault(tm)\pb\pbrcon.dat
PunkBuster Server: 0 Map lines loaded from C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Medal of Honor Pacific Assault(tm)\pb\pbsvmaps.cfg
PunkBuster Server: PunkBuster Server (v1.076 | A1322 C1.066) Enabled
PunkBuster Client: PunkBuster Client (v1.066 | A0) Enabled
PunkBuster Client: Game Version [Medal of Honor Pacific Assault 1.1]
Hitch warning: 24820 msec frame time
PunkBuster Server: Game Version [Medal of Honor Pacific Assault 1.1]

But I still cannot get rcon commands to show version, create a config file, Nothing.

Punkbuster logs all players into server, I see there GUID's, but I cannot access it from in game. I'm not a noob, just lost.


Thanks

An update:

I have gotten the Web application for punkbuster working by manaully creating a pbsv.cfg. Through the web client, I am able to access the game, but still not able to access Punkbuster through rcon.

In order to issue punkbuster commands, I have to exit game and pull up the web application.

So the question still stands, "Why do the in game rcon commands not work, is there a command line I am missing from the client side?.

Is the client side missing a link to punkbuster, I have punkbuster enabled in my game. Our server runs pure, with stats, and punkbuster.

I'm bound and determined to figure this out. AAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!. Pulling what hair I have let out. LOL
