I am in a COD2/COD4 gaming clan. Due to my being able to spend more time on the server, the head admin wants me to be an admin, also.
He suggested I get RCON to perform admin tasks. However, there is no RCON for OS X. Is there another program I can get to administer a remote game server from a Mac?

Hi MMach 5,
All the admin stuff can be done via the console in the game. Here (http://www.anarchyrules.co.uk/cod2/server%20commands.html) is a list of the commands.
There is a downside that when in console by missing the '/' symbol you end up saying whatever it is you typed in chat mode. So if you want to log-in by typing '/rcon login <password>' but miss the initial forward-slash, you will accidentally say in chat mode 'rcon login <password>', i.e. give everyone on the server the admin password! :o :D
If you want an admin tool instead, I believe Epecaf Launcher (http://epecafsoft.home.comcast.net/~epecafsoft/) will do the trick for CoD2. I've never used it myself, so I can't comment on it.
Hope that helps! :)

I just downloaded Epecaf and will try it out later today.
