So, I have a Ubuntu laptop which I’m hosting my Garry’s Mod server. It starts up fine and it says VAC Secure mode is on (or whatever it’s suppost to say, you get the point.) But, on my PC, in local network it doesn’t show up. I don’t think I need to portforward because, when I hosted my test server on my PC, on my Macbook, It showed up in local network and I could connect without any portforwarding or anything like that.
This is what my console looks like:
[S_API FAIL] SteamAPI_Init() failed; SteamAPI_IsSteamRunning() failed. WS: No +host_workshop_collection or it is invalid! Unknown command "cl_cmdrate" Unknown command "cl_updaterate" Unknown command "rate" Network: IP 127.0.1.1, mode MP, dedicated Yes, ports 27015 SV / 27005 CL Unable to persist cache 'modelsounds.cache', check file permissions Error loading cfg/trusted_keys_base.txt Error loading cfg/pure_server_minimal.txt PREP OK ConVarRef room_type doesn't point to an existing ConVar Executing dedicated server config file server.cfg Using map cycle file cfg/mapcycle.txt.

Assigned anonymous gameserver Steam ID [A-1:844838921(9097)]. VAC secure mode is activated.
Do I need to change things in my Ubuntu server, install anything extra, any ideas? If you need more information, just reply and I’ll give it to you.
