Great stuff but i don't know what is wrong with my server.
All 4 inputs has correct data and i can't still connect:
IP or Port is incorrect, please check your login credentials and make sure the server is running!

Is there any thing i should do on serwer to connect with this program?

To set server i use TADST.

Thx for help.

Make sure you have battleye enabled, "rcon password" is set in beserver.cfg, ports are set, ports are forwarded, and correct port and ip is entered in ARC, let me know if you need anymore help

Is it possible to rcon from a different computer instead of on the server computer? So say I wanted to give RCon Access but not server access to the server computer? So is it possible to RCon from a different computer with this tool?

Thanks.

Still can't conncet.
BE is "on" in TADST when i'm starting server.
I created beserver.cfg in BattlEye folder.
In beserver.cfg i wrote RConPassword xxxx (xxxx my password).
To be sure that my ip and port are correct i took them from gametracker.
All rulez of firewall should be ok cause we are using our server for a very long time with no problems.

Thx for your time.
Dave

Yes, you should be able to use ARC from anywhere you have access to the internet and as long as the defined battleye ports are forwarded to the server and the server has battleye enabled. So, as long as people from other places (not in the same building) can play on the server, you should be able to connect with ARC as this typically means that the ports are forwarded.

so, password set, 'BattlEye = 1;' set in server.cfg, ports forwarded? - I'm about as baffled as you seem to be.

I believe arma runs on UDP and battleye/rcon runs on TCP, so both of these need to be allowed in your firewall (someone correct me if I'm wrong as i always turn both on)

also, there may be a logs folder right next to arc.exe, if you pm me the contents of these logs we may be able to shed a little more light on this.

Looks really nice, will give it a try :)
What I wish for in any RCON tool is support for multiple servers, multiple windows/tabs for each server.
