I’ve followed a long guide on setting up a dedicated server and i have the hldsupdatetool all set up and ready to go. My server shows up on the game list (to me anyway) and i can connect to it myself. (I’m using a separate computer for the server) But i tried asking someone to connect and they couldn’t. I forwarded my ports as well.
Here’s my target line for my srcds shortcut: C:\SRCDS\orangebox\srcds.exe C:\SRCDS\srcds.exe -console -game garrysmod -tickrate 33 -ip ###### -port 27015 -maxplayers 8 +map gm_flatgrass
- to hide my IP, but i know it’s correct.
I’m not sure what’s wrong or what else there is to do. Everything works except people connecting to it.
Also, this isn’t a LAN server, i’m trying to get it up on the entire serverlist and on some pages it actually leads to the Source Dedicated Server actual menu opening up where you can select the options, mine doesn’t ever open up that. It just opens the cmd window.
My IP is static as well.
As for the “menu that you can select options”, i’m talking about this:
at the end of that page.
It is in the LAN tab but i tried searching under the internet tab and i can’t connect myself even from the internet tab (but it is on the list). But i can connect if i add it to favorites or from the LAN tab.
