T.R.... So did any 1 had faced with this problem? And maybe there are some programs that can help me... Plz aswer... By the way i can join any server and do everything but no one can join me :"((((((
If you have a router, that might be your problem. Most routers don't allow you to make a server unless you open the ports. Go into your router's settings and open up the ports for Counter-Strike: Source. Search Google for instructions on how to do that.
I made connection test and i got this results :
UDP Port: 27000 to 27040
TCP Port: 27020 to 27040
But i need:
UDP 1200 (For the Friends service)
UDP 27000 to 27015 inclusive
TCP 27020 to 27050 inclusive
So is that the problem i'm having?
Also try to type in "heartbeat" in console. That will contact the main steam server and put it in the list of servers. But if you get an error after an minute like "Bad challenge from port (...)" then you will need to forward those ports.
Go to start > run. Then type in CMD. a litle window will now apear and you will need to type in IPCONFIG.
Not a list of numbers will come, but you will only need your "Default Gateway" type that number in your browser and will wil come into your router. You will be promp to enter a password the standard password is "admin" (without the quotes). Once in your router you will need to find your port forwarding options and enter the correct information and you are done.
I hope I helped and I am going to make a tutorial about this with a few minutes cause alot of people are asking for this. :)
Well i tried it before i found on net... And i tried it again but i can't open that page it says The page cannot be displayed and i tried with http://my ip triend just my ip tried http://www. my ip but still the same thing... So i don't know what do do any more :(
Cause in the post above you sayd "http://my ip triend just my ip tried http://www. my ip "
Cause when you use your IP it wont work and if you are 100% positively sure enterd your defoult gateway correctly I am out off options but one. Cause you need to be directly conected to the router on the first port with a wire.
