This problem is really making me angry.
My friend and I both were able to host listen servers before the update. We BOTH have our ports forwarded, so that isn’t the problem. Our servers show up in the INTERNET TAB. Yet we still get the connection failed after four retries error.
There has to be a fix for this.
I’ll say it again, our ports are forwarded, AND our servers are in the INTERNET tab, we can both see each other’s server. But if anyone tries to join, they get the “Connection Failed After Four Retries,” error.
We both :
Have the orange box.
Have the latest updates to our graphics cards, games, etc.
Have sv_lan set to zero.
Have used heartbeat.
Have Windows Xp, so it isn’t a Vista problem.
Have our ports forwarded.
What we’ve tried :
Reinstalling Garry’s Mod.
Creating a blank listenserver.cfg file (console said it wasn’t loading, and there wasn’t one there)
“Cleaning” Garry’s Mod.
I really want to host, and I really want a fix for this.
