i have a question…
in Garry’s Mod, i can create a server but no one can join me, the same with dedicated.
in Left 4 Dead i can create servers and dedicated ones too and people can join.
please help me
if you want me to post my ports that are forwarded then tell me please
Left 4 dead finds the nearest and best server, so we can rule that out.
Also check somewhere in the Gmod section there is a guide to setting a server up.
did you use portforward.com?
Also get your IP address
Then tell your buddy to type in console “connect your IP address”
No i make local (listen) servers in l4d
the same in gmod but gmod wont let players connect
Re-read my post and link.
ok im doing that right now to see if that works
like i said i set it up correctly and it still dosnt work -_-
now is there anyway to test if my server works?
i dont want to load up my gmod for nothing
Read my post.
Did it work?
nope it still says for my friends Connection failed after 4 retries
What ports did you forward?
Well, if you are going to disregard my help, then I am afraid you wont get anywhere
Ports should be forwarded to 27005- 27020
If not, that’s your problem.
Also, for the slightest fact, I gurantee you did, but you are useless at it.
Type in your IP in your web browser,
Pass and user should be admin.
Set UDP or TCP to 27005-27020. Restart your router and check for effect.
After you spawn, Try typing this in console:
sv_lan 0 ip <YOURIP> heartbeat
what kiwi said…
I have comcast and a lot of my friends say its because of comcast. Is that true?
Herm I don’t know if that is the problem, I have comcast, I tried setting it up, it doesn’t work, most likely cause I messed up or I am too lazy to fix it But I don’t think that would contribute to it…
