When I attempt to join my server I get this error. I am running a dedicated server on my computer and want to join it on this same computer. It worked before, but now it doesn’t. What’s up? This is the first time I have started into Garry’s Mod for months and it did work a few months ago but now it doesn’t work.
I have followed the srcds wiki instructions thoroughly and sequentially. I did not extract my garrysmod.gcf, I downloaded it with cmd. I extracted all of the needed .gcf files from my steamapps folder to by D:/srcds folder. I made a .bat file for launching it and I have tried using ServerChecker v3.0 with no avail.
When I join the server it just says “Couldn’t allocate any server IP port”
I have tried looking for it in the LAN list, it isn’t there. It also is not in the Internet list. I try connecting with “connect <lan ip>” and “connect <internet ip>” without the “<” and “>” of course, and it still won’t work right, as I get the error again.
My firewall is giving srcds.exe full access, and I also opened my firewall ports on the computer of 27015, both TCP and UDP.
My LAN adapter settings have my computer have a static LAN address of 192.168.0.100
My router settings are as follows: (It’s an Actiontec GT704WG)
DMZ Hosting enabled on 192.168.0.100
27015 TCP and 27015 UDP are both forwarded on 192.168.0.100
I have a lot more ports in there, but that IS in there. Even though it really don’t matter, since I have DMZ hosting enabled.
What’s going on guys? I need help, I know it used to work but now it doesn’t work all of the sudden. I tried CS:S and it can still run a dedicated server and be able to play in it on the same computer with no problems.
Windows Vista Home Premium x86
3.0Ghz dual core CPU
4GB DDR2-533 RAM
300GB H.D.D. partitioned to a C: (system only) and D: (all my data) drives.
Don’t know if it matters but my internet IP is a 75. address
Attempted fixes I have tried:
Change the port: I have tried this, it gives the same error message.
Turn off firewall: I have tried, it still gives the error.
I would really appreciate it if any of you guys could help me out. I really want to get this fixed because when I host a listen server, no one can join through the Internet list or through the friends list, even though I typed heartbeat and sv_lan 0. And not to mention Garry’s Mod crashes a lot and if I crash everyone else will lose connection.
Thanks a million guys.
