Server Not Responding (NO ROUTER)

Right, before I get all these links to other threads, hear me out.

I DO NOT USE A ROUTER!

When I was on XP, my friends could join a server I created easily, no problem.
When I put on Windows 7, they get the gay “Server not responding” message.

I do not own a router, so port forwarding is not the answer, I’ve tried sv_lan 0 in console.

Like I said, I always did this for CSS and Gmod on XP, but it doesn’t seem to work now.

Help please :smiley:

Have you tried looking at Windows 7’s firewall settings?
