PunkBuster Console Commands


There are a range of additional PunkBuster console commands you can use in America's Army. These aren't covered here due to space considerations, however you can see the full list of these in this section of the PunkBuster Online Manual.



America's Army Server Manager


A utility called the America's Army Server Manager is included with America's Army which makes managing servers much easier for Admins by providing an easy-to-use GUI. For full details of how to enter the AASM Utility, see the Getting Started With AA Server Manager.pdf document in your \Program Files\America's Army Server Manager\ directory. Note that you must install this utility during the initial installation of America's Army to have access to it. However if you can't find it on your machine, run the AASM17Installer.exe file found in your base \America's Army\.


Importantly for Server managers - you must open the following ports for America's Army to work correctly on your server:


UDP - 1716, 1717, 1718, 8777, 27900

TCP - 14200, 20025-20045, 20046, 20047, 20048


For a full list of all known console commands, and in particular help in undertaking complex keybindings, see the detailed Console Commands, Switches and Keybindings Help thread on the America's Army Forums.
