Disable RCON?

Hello, I'm running a server that people can use RCON to (If they know the password). Yesterday, I saw this popping up many times in my srcds console: "Bad rcon password", meaning that someone tried to crack it. So is there a way to disable this whole RCON thing? I still wan't to keep the sourcemod sm_rcon up.

Sincerely, Hannu

    To my knowledge, the only way to disable the RCON is to not use anything that would require the RCON to be accessed, which means removing the source mod that gives you the sm_rcon command. I might be wrong, though.

    I used to run a plugin called RCON Lock, not sure if that's what you're looking for though.
