Gmod Dedicated Server's FastDL Not Working

Before I get into the details, I’m using my PC as the dedicated server (to test things before buying a dedicated server). Also if you do give some helpful info, please be semi-detailed about it to help me out, I’m not the greatest at this stuff but I’m trying (:

Problem: When connecting to my dedicated server, fastdl does not kick in and nothing gets downloaded by anyone joining (have had myself and 2 other buddies test this).

Before you spout out tons of things to check I’ll just give you a list:
—I’ve followed ALL of these sites, doing all of this from scratch each time:,1037.0.html

as well as checking numerous forums.
—The ports on my PC ARE open and done correctly.
—Here’s my server.cfg and I KNOW that using addons folder wont work, at least according to most of the places I’ve checked. There are files in that should fastdl and tell me that fastdl is working (but doesn’t).
[lua] hostname “pizza partyz”
sv_defaultgamemode “DarkRP”
sv_lan “0”
maxplayers “20”
sbox_allownpcs “0”
sbox_maxprops “175”
sbox_maxragdolls “0”
sbox_maxnpcs “1”
sbox_maxballoons “10”
sbox_maxeffects “1”
sbox_maxdynamite “2”
sbox_maxlamps “5”
sbox_maxthrusters “25”
sbox_maxwheels “20”
sbox_godmode “0”
sbox_plpldamage “0”
sbox_playergod “0”
sbox_noclip “1”
sbox_maxhoverballs “25”
sbox_maxvehicles “1”
sbox_maxbuttons “15”
rcon_password “guess”
sv_downloadurl “
sv_allowupload “1”
sv_allowdownload “1”
—The file permissions on my FTP site are setup correctly (775, i’ve also tried 770 but still nothing).

I’m not sure what to even try anymore because as far as I know, everything should just work, but fastdl doesn’t. ANY help would be appreciated.


bump…come on, someone give me a hand

Well first off the webadress should show something like this as you can see it shows the dir’s but i too cant get fastdl to work
