Server Hosting on Windows 7

Sorry for the wall of text but.

Server OS:Windows 7 32bit
Processor: duo core 2.76 ghz
Ram: 4 GB
Game(s): Garrysmod 10, Zombiemaster
Start Up Command:start /wait srcds.exe -console -game zombie_master +map zm_docksofthedead +ip +tv_port 27020 +hostport 27016 +maxplayers 14

I’m hosting and playing off the same Pc, I never had a issue with running the server when i had windows XP 32bit but now every time i try to join my own server or some one else’s when I have my server running I get the error after 4 retries" but if i close the server and try to join some one else’s server it lets me. My ports are set the same way they where on XP so i don’t know what could be doing this.

Note. Any one can join my server even people on my network fine , its just not leting me on.

Dude, just make a peice of crap server and install Windows Server 2003, and try again, my servers run perfectly ^^

Sure your ip is correct?

For one, you don’t need to specify the IP in the arguments to start the server up, it’ll listen on the root IP of whatever box it’s on. Secondly, make sure in fact you’re typing the IP right. I would just fave it.
