Hello everybody, I hope you can help me.
I got the following error:
Starting server...
Connecting to master server...

...OK
Identifying on master server...
...ERROR: login unknown
...Server stopped
Ready, waiting for commands.

Ready, waiting for commands.

!!! I HAVE setted a working name and password, i created also 2 new ones, tried with that but no effect.
So don't say that I have to set a username and password in the config because i have done that.!!!


Anybody knows what then the problem can be?

in case its the nations server, you just create a new username of your choise, a password and a nation (thats important) in official 3letter naming convention,

then it will automaticly create this (except if its already used)..

in the case of united :

first create name and password using your tmu playerkey here

Obviously you the dedicated can't find your playlist.
Check its name and whether it's in the right place (...\GameData\Tracks\MatchSettings).

If you can connect in LAN, and can see it in internet list, then the dedicated itself is working.
So... can other players join it ?
- if no, then you have a problem in ports redirections, or a firewall problem.
- if yes, then like many you just have a router which refuse loopback redirections. First you can tru to see if some firmware update of your router could make the problem disapear... if not, then you need some workaround to connect in internet mode, like this one : tmforum3/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=10262

Everything goes the rigth way until I try to click in the "server start" icon and it closes almost instantly. The only thing that appears is this windows, which closes:

My firewall is set to training mode, so it is not blocking in any way. The router is already open, I think.

Can someone please tell me what did I do wrong?

(I'm sorry for my bad english :P)
