tl;dr: YaTQA supports all ServerQuery features. No exceptions.
Because that’s quite a lot, the following list only lists stuff that you cannot do with the normal TS3 client (which in return allows you to speak, which YaTQA doesn’t).
For more details and screenshots, see the Manual.
- Small: YaTQA is a very small download and install.
- Portable: YaTQA works on any vanilla Windows and does not require a single runtime package to be installed.
- Portable: The YaTQA installer does not modify your system. You can select a portable version to store on an USB stick – or even a 3.5” floppy after using an EXE packer.
- Secure: Of the many TeamSpeak Client exploits over the past years, YaTQA was unaffected by all of them. Instead, YaTQA was even used to produce some those errors, because it did not crash.
There is no need to be admin of any server to use these.
- DNS resolver: Detailed and easy-to-understand DNS lookup visualisation
- Blacklist: Check TeamSpeak’s blacklist for any IP
- Blacklist2: Check TeamSpeak’s blacklist2 for any virtual server from an instance’s server list
- User graph: View the server statistics collected by Planet TeamSpeak as a chart and save it as an image
- Client cache: Find avatars, icons and chat logs in your client cache
Common Server-Related Features
These features don’t belong in any other category.
- Console: Send own query commands, also supporting auto complete and parameter help
- Autocomplete: Helps finding your command (also includes undocumented commands)
- Parameter help: Displays every command’s parameters, based on my research rather than the very bad official documentation
- Parameter value selection: Need a parameter value? Press Ctrl+ to select one from a list!
- Result analysis: Groups datasets and tells you what most values mean
- Scripting: You can load a list of commands to be executed.
- Events: Subscribe to events to log them in the console.
- SSH tunnel: Easily connect to your server via SSH instead of telnet (see here for server system requirements)
- Encryption: Fully encrypted connection (except for file transfers)
- Speed: Once logged in, it works notably faster on most servers (similar to using
- Privacy: Always hides your IP (because you’re 127.0.0.1)
- Flood restrictions: This also circumvents all flood restrictions (because 127.0.0.1 is usually whitelisted)
You usually need access to the query account called “serveradmin”. YaTQA of course comes with a bookmark manager you can fill with your instance credentials.
- View instance stats
- View/edit instance settings
- View license details
- View IP bindings
- See all virtual servers
- Add some local notes to the servers (as said, these are local and not stored on-line)
- Start/stop/create/delete/rename virtual servers
- Become invisible (this is more likely a server bug and might get fixed in the future)
- Send a message to all servers
Elevated Virtual Server Features
You usually need access to the query account called “serveradmin” (and that’s why they are in an instance tab in YaTQA) even though these are technically virtual server features.
- Create/mass-create/deploy snapshots
- Create and deploy snapshots that include the files (registered users only)
- Deploy manipulated snapshots (registered users only)
- Deploy manipulated snapshots
- Use snapshots to copy a server
- Use snapshots to copy servers (registered users only)
- Reset permissions to those of the template groups
- Save channel file backups on your computer and restore them (also supports an incremental backup)
Virtual Server Features
These usually work without access to the “serveradmin” account; a Server Admin account created in the TS client should be enough. However, that’s not officially supported and there’s no guarantee that all features will work on your server.
