Is there some way to limit a server for team members only and a maximum of 10 guests or soemthing? Do We just set the server players to 10 and add all members to the guest list?

You could try and set the server to 0 players and fill the guestlist with the login names of your team mates. It will let guestlist members pass even if maximum amount of users is reached.

Use a player account (yours for example), that's all.

For the port, i only have the one said in the french forum :
Note : pour que votre dédié internet fonctionne et soit joignable, il faut : qu'il puisse sortir en https (443 tcp), reçoive sur le port <server_port> en tcp et udp (2350 tcp eu udp par défaut, mais si c'est sur une machine servant aussi au jeu changez plutot pour 2352) et que le port soit redirigé sur le routeur si nécessaire, reçoive sur le port <server_p2p_port> en tcp (3450 tcp par défaut, mais si c'est sur une machine servant aussi au jeu changez plutot pour 3452) et que le port soit redirigé sur le routeur si nécessaire. Et si vous voulez le manager depuis un outil distant qu'il reçoive aussi sur le port <xmlrpc_port> en tcp (5000 tcp par défaut, mais sur un windows il est parfois utilisé par le système alors changez plutot pour 5002).
ping for server 443 tcp ; server port 2350 tcp & udp (alternative 2352) + router redirection ; 3450 tcp for the P2P port (alternative 3452) + router redirection ; and if you use a external manager 5000 tcp (alternative 5002)

:shock:
What is your problem with this sentence ?
For TM Nations Forever dedicated account, just create an account with the TMN-F game

Did you build your file using an existing one ? (open one of the nadeo matchsettings and only replace the challenge list, the best thing to get a matchsettings file working)..

Maybe missing the
<playlist>
tag inside ?

sorry for my bad english :lol:
Make sure your configuration file is NOT in the root of the server. That is NOT where it belongs. That was my issue.
I have the same problem, and well where to put it? The Configuration file? I am a noob and i am new to this, so not putting it in the root of the server doesnt really telle me much :P

It should be in \GameData\Config\, just where it was when you unpacked the server zip. See my Quick Start Guide for more advice.

If you have the same issues as in the screen above, you have to look at the first errors: the server can't find the config and matchsettings files.
Are you starting the server with the correct parameters? See my QSG for a sample .bat file.
