New Rust - Status on Server commands (RCON, etc)?

What’s the status on server commands? I host a server and like to run geocache and prizes and without ability to give items or direct airdrops to coordinates. it makes it less interesting.

anyway, what is the status of RCON and server commands for give item, Teleport, Admin tools/etc.

I keep hearing you can use the in-game console (f1) but I can’t seem to get that to work as the owner of the server with the RCON password.

thanks for any help/guidance.
