So I know there’s tons of threads about this, but I can’t find the answer.
My girlfriend can’t connect to me and I can’t connect to her. In Team Fortress 2, I press “Create Server” and do all that jazz correctly, but nobody can join it. The server just doesn’t show up in the server browser, and when I invite her or she tries to join through the friends menu, it just says “Server not responding.” I’ve tried opening ports, joining through console commands and IP addresses, nothing seems to work. I can’t use portforward.com because I don’t have a static IP address. The recommended ports are opened on both my firewall and my router.
On another note, we’re easily able to join our servers in Left 4 Dead 2, not sure if it helps, but there you go.
This is infuriating and I hope somebody has the answer. I offer a supply crate in TF2 to whomever gets it working.
