Srcds console errors...

So when i run my srcds everything loads just peachy, but i see 2 errors that catch my eye:


 Initializing steam libraries for secure internet server.
    BOpenService failed.
    ServiceStart: Failed to start.

After that it says the connection to steam servers was successful, but when i try to connect it times out.

Could this possibly be a problem with port forwarding? And if so, how can i fix this?

Are you home hosting this, or are you using a VPS.

VPS.

Ask your server provider to forward ports for you.

If you did it yourself, you might have done something incorrectly.

I assume the needed ports are forwarded. Is there any specific port i should be using?

Here’s a console dump from when i start my server:


Garrysmod server.dll Build #129
maxplayers set to 24
Network: IP 216.245.199.179, mode MP, Dedicated yes, ports 27035 SV / 27005 CL
Initializing steam libraries for secure internet server.
    BOpenService failed.
    ServiceStart: Failed to start.
Connection to steam servers successful.
Public IP 216.245.199.179
VAC activated.


What the heck? Does this mean the ports aren’t forwarded?

Wait, how did you get your server to contact steam? I have been trying to do that with mine.
Anyways, seems to look OK in my point of view.
Even works

Ports required.

27005-27015.

Edit.
Although in saying that, it could just be a bug, and if your server can be seen by others then it’s nothing to worry about.

For the following errors please install the Steam Client on the remote machine, then run it, and try launching your server again.



ServiceStart: Failed to start.
Unable to load Steam support library.
