Thanks Cyrlaur. My remote servers are on a dedicated linux (Centos5) server which I rent and control fully. The xmlrpc ports I use for ManiaPlanet servers are:
5000, 5001, and 5075 - ServerMania 1.00 connects to all of these ok and remains connected as long as I need it.
I also found that I can connect to and control SOME of my TM2 servers with ServerMania 1.00, which use these ports:
5020, 5070 and 5570!
I see the same issues on all servers when connected with ServerMania:
** The 'Quit' button shuts server down & the 'lost connection' message pops up - need to restart manually;
** The 'Start' & 'Quit' buttons are dimmed (not available);
* I can change server settings(options), game settings, shuffle (randomize) tracks/ maps, chat, control players etc;
* New tracks/ maps can be added from local collection;
* I can restart or skip maps and load/ save matchsettings; and
* When using the 'Exit' button, the main page closes and returns to the launcher (which is normal).
All other RPC functions work on this remote server, e.g. ManiaRecords to web page, tmos viewer, xaseco-stats and RemoteCP, so that doesn't seem to be the issue. Do you have any suggestions?
