dedicated server help

I made a dedicated server for gmod with srcds and it works fine and my friends can join but for some reason it wont let me join. Can anyone help me with this?

Yea i have been having the same problem, i try have done the -hostport 27016 -tv_port 27021 in my gmod target, but it still wont let me connect to my server. i have forwarded all my ports and put my local ip in the target as well. but i am still unable to connect to my server, yet my friends can.

did you try on both local and multiplayer IP?

local looks like this: 192.168.1.100:27015
and multiplayer like this: 62.45.97.57:27015 (looks different by you)

:smiley: thanks i typed in console connect (my multiplayer ip) and it worked :DDDDDD
