A Soldat server takes, on average, 25-30MB of RAM.  2.5.2 with scripting enabled takes more, I believe 50-60MB (EnEsCe can confirm this or correct me).

Well this is what I get:

Server: 3400~ Kb RAM
Map: 40-80~ Kb RAM
Player: 200-600~ Kb RAM

I don't know how much a script takes.

but I would say 1 server with 10 players would take probably 7400 Kb~ or 7.23~ Mb RAM

even though with scripts I have no idea. but how much processor does it take for, Server, scripts, players, map?

Hmm, I have a 512kbit/s upstream cable modem, yet it seems that things start lagging around 6 slots connected. According to your calculations, I should be able to handle much more than 6 slots. What gives?

No calculation can give you perfect results, FLAB also declared that. There are more variables to count in if hosting a server (please, do read the whole topic, it's not long).

It should within a few days when the server issue gets resolved.

hmm, it appears to be mirrored here:
