I'm running Rust Community Server. and i check the status of my server using BattleMetrics when i'm out.
A few days ago, i found my server marked offline on BattleMetrics, but it was actually online. So, i googled about it. and i found this article.
When your server is showing "offline" on BattleMetrics, but it is online, you have to check:
- Using BattleMetrics' Rcon feature -> this article may helpful to you
- A bad route or firewall blocking BattleMetrics' traffic from reaching your server -> you have to allow BattleMetrics' IP using for any Rcon connection or query
I was in the second case. so i whitelisted all BattleMetrics' IPs using for any Rcon connection or query.
These are the IPs BattleMetrics may use for any RCON connection or query:
