Server fails to start after deciding it's port

Heyo,

Pretty new here, and just looking for help. Please be kind D:

So I’m running a dedicated server using Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS with some pretty standard iptables.
My current iptables are:


iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 27005:27019 -j ACCEPT
iptables -I INPUT -p udp --dport 27005:27019 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -m state --state RELATED,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT
iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT
iptables -I INPUT 5 -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 80 -m state --state NEW,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -j REJECT

Pretty much, I’ll start up my ttt server on 27015 and it starts fine. I’ll start up darkrp on 27016 and it’ll go all the way up until it decides which ports and also goes to 27020 which is weird.

Network: IP NOPE, mode MP, dedicated Yes, ports 27016 SV / 27006 CL

If I close TTT and start DRP it wont do the port shuffle “bound to port… instead” it will just say:


Network: IP NOPE, mode MP, dedicated Yes, ports 27016 SV / 27006 CL

I used to use the autoexec file to have most of the switches in there, and just start with -game garrysmod and +gamemode darkrp
It would set the map, port, playercount, all the other stuff. Now that is empty and I just can’t get past this. I’ve tried to set it to sandbox or terror town but doesn’t want to happen :confused:

Send halp!
