Ok, as a test I downloaded steam and used the TF2 dedicated server with garry’s mod files (downloaded in like 2 minutes at 4mbps ;D). But even that didn’t work. My server.cfg is fine, after I made my own, I decided to download one from my old server host (clanbaselive) but I’ll post it anyway I guess…
I’m starting to think the “Could not connect to steam servers” could have something to do with it, but if I wait about five minutes, sometimes it says “Connection to steam servers successful” and then " VAC secure mode activated" (yes with the spaces at the start - I like being specific). Anyway, I don’t want to use the steam version (which does the same thing anyway!) because this server is good enough to run about four servers on it which I’ll do after I get the one working ;(
So has anyone got any ideas what this could be? If I use telnet I get a response! So it is clearly a problem with SRCDS.
