I dont want "LAN"
How do i use "internet"?
Add the /internet option to the startup command/script. And upgrade to the 2006-05-30 server, your 2006-01-29 build is obsolete.

You need a program like Aseco or Fast. See the Toolbox forum.

Hello there, does this work with Trackmania Nations Forever as well ?

I tried but I get a strange feedback from the console application :

[2008/04/18 16:30:04] Initializing...

[2008/04/18 16:30:05] Ready, waiting for commands.


So I checked and found that the Paths to the Gbx files in Own.txt were wrong. I fixed it and now I get this :

[2008/04/18 16:33:53] Ready, waiting for commands.


I'm not sure what is wrong now. I use

C:\TMServer\TmDedicatedServer\TrackManiaServer.exe /game=nations /dedicated_cfg=dedicated.cfg /game_settings=MatchSettings/Own.txt /internet

for the server shortcut, but right now I wonder if game=nations is okay for "trackmania nations forever" game ?

Thanks for any help ! If it turns out that this server cannot be used for Nations Forever, can you guys point me to an appropriate server application for Nations Forever ?

Thanks !

hi all first time posting so if anything is wrong please forgive me , i am desperate to set up a dedicated server and after reading almost everything around different boards (while i realise i may have missed it ) but can anyone tell me if i :-
a)can set up a dedicated server on a dynamic isp address
b) do i have to leave my comp on for server to be working or can i turn computer off and still have server running.
I know that these may seem basic questions but at the moment when i set up my server i have to stay in game or it turns off server, and also due to dynamic isp where i get a new isp address every time i turn my computer on i then have to reconfigure firewall and game everytime i want to use server, thanks if you are able to help.

Hello,
Does anyone know how much traffic does a dedi create? I'm planning to setup a tmuf server for 20-30 players on my remote server. It has max 1Gbps link to mainline and 150GBpm traffic limit.
