Can't connect to dedicated server locally

Just recently i started to use console mode so i could have it restart automatically when it froze or crashed, but now i can’t join from the same machine. I see it in lan tab but when i try to join it times out 4 times. I also tried using my external ip-address but that didn’t work either. the ip parameter is set to my internal ip.

Any ideas why i can’t connect? I’ve seen in the console other people connecting and playing, but i can’t.

No answers??? It worked fine when it wasn’t in console mode, and it also worked fine when i removed +ip from the end, but when i remove that serverchecker doesn’t check right and continuously restarts my server.

I removed +ip stuff AND used in serverchecker and it works fine.
