The file "realmlist.wtf" contains information that is used by the World of Warcraft game to get the servers in which it connects to & the update servers address also. The only reason to edit this file is to play on free private servers in which there are many of online now days. You can open this file with just about any text editor program. The WTF has nothing to do with its online meaning its an actual file extension used only for the purpose of storing the games server & updates connection information.
The default file text is as follows:
set realmlist us.logon.worldofwarcraft.com
set patchlist us.version.worldofwarcraft.com
When you play on a private server you just delete both lines & place the servers address in that you wish to play on & of course you must first have an account on their server to connect as well.
Example Fake Server:
set realmlist www.TonyFordz.net
The above is what your private servers text would look like but I used my home page address instead & I don't run private servers so it will not do anything for you as its just an example. Where "www.TonyFordz.net" is you would replace it with the private servers address.
Hope this helps,
I know this is a long time ago (2007) but you seem to know a bit or alot xd

theres also a realmlist.wtf file in in Data\enGB folder so i deleted the config file or edited, did the two things, and the file in the enGB folder but when i try to login in to the sever i want it says wrong username bla bla...
when i close the game the Config file is there again but the other file i put there is still there or sometimes not.
