Setting up a Listen Server

When i try to set up a listen server for gmod it says server not responding, and nobody can join. How would one fix this?

Listen servers arent made for people to join, you need a “Dedicated Server” for that. You can either follow a tutorial or rent one.

Of course you can join a listen server. What made you think you couldn’t?

Make sure the correct ports are open. www.portforward.com

You can? I cant.

Doesn’t mean they aren’t meant for joining.

Control your ego, young grasshopper.

When people do “View Game Info” on Steam, Steam acts retarded and gives you the LAN IP (or worse, 127.0.0.1, the localhost IP).

You need to go to http://www.whatismyip.org and give them the IP that site gives you.

I cant, its too big!

thats what she said ^^
