It is possible to connect to a dedicated server to send admin commands.
The feature is off by default and must be enabled:
http://forum.kartracing-pro.com/index.php?topic=8.0
http://forum.kartracing-pro.com/index.php?topic=3609.0
Only 1 client can connect to the server.

Communication is made with UDP sockets and strings terminated with "\n".

Send "CONNECT" followed by the connection password ( empty string if no password ).
Reply:
OK -> connected
FULL -> another client is already connected
WRONGPASSWORD -> wrong password

Data format is "CMD" followed by an incremental message ID and then the command.
The possible commands are:
"QUIT": closes the server
"MSG": followed by the chat message, that also allows to send commands ( see the dedicated server documentation for more info: http://forum.kartracing-pro.com/index.php?topic=8.0 )

The server will send an ACK followed by the message ID for each CMD received.

Send "KEEPALIVE" every 15 seconds to keep the connection active.
The server sends "ALIVE" to report that the connection is active.

Send "DISCONNECT" to correctly close the connection.

Starting with Release11f, the remote admin protocol has been changed to make it more robust, adding ACK and KEEPALIVE messages.

First post updated.
