Server doesn't show up in Local Network.

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:

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.

Not sure why but it shows Network IP as 127.0.1.1 not sure if you have any control over that but I’m 99.999% sure that localhost is 127.0.0.1 which is probably why your game can’t find it. What you can try however is going into Garry’s Mod and opening console and typing


connect 127.0.1.1

(Also make sure both systems are connected to the exact same network at the same time)
