Multiplayer Server Commands
|!||It's recommended to use BattlEye's RCon tool to administrate the server, it uses custom port which one may easily secure by firewall rules! (RCON can't be affected by in-game script exploits)|
You can access the command line by pressing the chat key ( default: / ).
In the chat input window you can type any of the following commands in and confirm them with the enter key.
You have to add the # character before the command.
The commands can be used in SQF scripts by using serverCommand.
Troubleshooting: All commands are confirmed via a message in the console. If you enter a command that is properly formatted and you see no confirmation of the command then an error has occurred. Check your server log for more information (e.g. one or more of your mission files is corrupt or has an error which prevents the Missions Lobby from loading, or may prevent other commands like #restart or #reassign from executing).
The following commands are available to you once you have connected to a server:
|Log in as the admin. Without password only possible if you an admin in server.cfg#Server_Options|

In Arma 3 #exec kick and #exec ban commands require quotes (string) for Name, UID or Player#. To do this for the UID or Player#, use format command to turn the user ID into a string.
#exec kick "5" #exec ban "imah4x0r" #exec kick "938679499494"
#kick command can still be used either way:
#kick imah4x0r #kick "imah4x0r"
In case of banning, ban.txt file is created in root Arma 3 directory that contains a list of banned UIDs. To unban a user by UID (UID is the only option) or to clear the ban.txt:
#exec unban "98749837498374" #exec clearbans
2 more diagnostic commands have been added to Arma 3:
