I sure hope you aren't a provider, as if you are having this much trouble 
just getting your server running I would not want to rent from you.

In regards to your question  you need to put sv.ranked 1 in your 
serversettings.con to enable ranking on the ranked server binaries.  It will 
then say 'Official Rankings Enabled' in the top right corner of the screen.

Once this is done, e-mail your EA contact and give him the primary IP of the 
machine, even if it isn't the IP the server is running on, to be listed in 
the rankings.  It's also easier to give them a netblock ( ie. /19 or /20 ) 
of your IP space for them to list so you don't need to email them each time.

The maplist is not hard-coded at all.

Good luck.

I'm Italian, so outside US...
I forgot the last "wondering": do I need to use two separate IPs for
the ranking? The doubt come from the hypotetic ranking port: if it's
the same I can have some issues...
Thanks :-)
