I was just lamenting how little control there is over a dedicated server.  It wold be nice if running the dedicated server would open a options window that allowed the person running it to see who is online, kick/ban or unban people, set a maximum number of AI per game[/i][/u], and control which maps are availiable on the server.

Yeah, something like that would make sense for Windows. At the moment the dedicated server is really designed with a command-line environment in mind, which is fine for Linux (ironic, then, that I haven't released the Linux version yet!) but rather awkward on Windows.

ok then, is there a way to implement the kick/ban/unban, and AI limits through the commandline?

AI limits yes - that could just be an options.ini setting. Kick/ban/unban, not so easily.

It would certainly be possible for me to implement limits on any of the settings via options.ini.
