Today I decided to host a Garrysmod dedicated server, so I followed this video to create one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xyzhMwJ6Q6I
It worked successfully. Although, other people can connect to the server, I can’t.
I see it in my Internet tab list when I start Garrysmod and choose ‘Play Multiplayer’ but when I try and join it, it says: Server is not responding. And at the first few times I started up the server it appeared in my history list and when I tried to join, Garrysmod crashed, and this message popped up: Couldn’t allocate any server IP port. Naturally, I googled it and found about 2 facepunch threads reguarding it. Both mentioned fixing it using this method that DanielPinoy posted: **"no this one is better:
right click to the srcds.exe shorcut in your desktop and then find Target, add this with space after garrysmod word:
+hostport 27016 +tv_port 27021
the whole thing should look like this:
C:\HLServer\orangebox\srcds.exe -game garrysmod +hostport 27016 +tv_port 27021
if you have private router you need to port forward this ports:
I did this, and went to Portforward.com to forward the ports. I used the correct router choice (I think) and used “Steam client server” as the tutorial.
But even after doing all this correctly, there is no difference. Help would be appreciated please.
