For the astronomically explainable reason, I can host a listen server, but nobody can connect to it. Not public, not even LAN. My roommate can host a server on his laptop and I can connect to it, I host a listen server, and it’s nowhere to be found. Can’t join in friends, can’t join manually through the console, can’t join from LAN tab in legacy browser.
This is what I have done:
Set a static IP for my computer through my routers (Netgear WNDR3400v2) DCHP reservation (currently 220.127.116.11)
Tried enabling/disabling UPnP for the router (apparently having it on has caused issues for other people)
Tried using DMZ on my static IP
Made sure sv_lan was 0, tried using the heartbeat command, and tried changing the IP setting in the console from localhost, to both my local ip (i was desperate), and my public IP from whatsmyip.org, and executed a map change between every command
Used PF Port checker to verify that the port 27015 on TCP and UDP were both open.
The ports forwarded are for both UDP and TCP
WTF IS GOING ON?:suicide:
**And just for shits and giigles, I can host a CSS server without a problem
