update: Please refer to information center article Using Automated Streaming Setup Tool


______________________________________________________________________________

(1) A streaming Server will return to [ /Rcon ] pb_sv_UconList : (Note: some games mainly AA and BF series will return no console echo to pb_sv_ commands.)

 

PunkBuster Client: [slot] [Type] [Mask] [Name]
PunkBuster Client: 1 1 66.55.152.232 pbbhub3-1
PunkBuster Client: 2 1 66.55.152.233 pbbhub3-2
PunkBuster Client: 3 1 66.55.152.234 pbbhub3-3

(disontinued AAO rcon-tool )

(3) Detailed PB-WebTool Setup see Hub Streaming Guide and http://evenbalance.com/ --> select game --> PB for admins


pb_sv_httpPort
pb_sv_httpAddr
pb_sv_httpKey

 
(4)
Note to increase pb_sv_USessionLimit value in case other pbucon sessions were/are initiated accordingly,
        e.g. (/rcon | admin) pb_sv_USessionLimit 16 //

 

A global remark re pb_sv_USessionLimit : Rule of thumb is to set the value to the number of desired running ucon sessions (pb_sv_uconlist) +1.
The additional session will help to (re-)initiate steaming in case of pbucon addition, hub restarts or (pb-)server restarts, otherwise pb server might block a new or reinitialized pbucon-session due to an old session waiting 5 mins. for a timeout. Especially all Battlefield Series Servers are notorious to keep a number of dead sessions with quite a time delay.

 
(5)
After entering your Rcon Password in Game Console /rconpassword YourRconP4ss - or set it in your default_mp.cfg
 
(6)
Start the game with +set com_allowconsole 1 -- lowercase commands only
 
(7)
Start the game with +set com_allowConsole 1
 
(8) N
ote: admin console will not return echos from admin pb_sv_ commands, see archive.org  AA pb manual

Important Note: To be able to use Rcon in Battlefield Series at all, make sure you carefully went thru the steps described here:
 

BF2: PB-Rcon Quickstart Guide
BF2142: PB-Rcon Quickstart Guide
BF1942/BFV: PB-Rcon Quickstart Guide

 
BF1942 : if all fails: DOS-prompt BF1942-GamePath/AdminTool
RemoteConsole.exe -u -p -port
Then: commands as 1. Rcon streaming fix/setup via Rcon-Tools, with a
 pb_sv_uconempty
// in front of
 pb_sv_uconadd 1 66.55.152.232 pbbhub3-1 pbbanshub
 pb_sv_uconadd 1 66.55.152.233 pbbhub3-2 pbbanshub

 pb_sv_uconadd 1 66.55.152.234 pbbhub3-3 pbbanshub

(10)
Alternatively consider to setup and use PB WebTool (see important note (9)):

 

BF2 WebTool Manual
BF2142 WebTool Manual
BF1942/BFV WebTool Manual

 
(11)
This command has been added due to BattleField Series Servers happen to open random Ucon Sessions in case the first one -- added by this Hub Setup -- fails and Timeout takes too long, what might exceed any set pb_sv_USessionLimit.
Note to check for other required  PBUcon Sessions - e.g. for streaming via pbucon to other AC sites - as these will be removed as well. If this is the case,
omit pb_sv_uconemppty.
