Steam Validation Rejected

I'm trying to run a dedicated TF2 server on my computer. I use the Steam tools.

It starts up fine, but when I (or anyone else) tries to join it, I get "Steam validation rejected".

It is a legal version of TF2.

So then I tried HLDSUpdateTool. I installed, then made a .bat like the following :

D:\HLDS\hldsupdatetool -command update -game tf -dir D:\TF2Server

The installation starts up for a second, then closes after about 5 seconds when it gets to "Updating Installation"

Anyone have any idea how to fix these problems?

Can you get a catch or a screenshot of that screen?
Arent you missing the .exe?
If that doesnt work
Do this, go to start, then run, then type in cmd then type in
cd D:\HLDS\
hldsupdatetool.exe -command update -game tf -dir D:\TF2Server

Also the steam validation rejected probably means that you don't have all of the ports forwarded

A bit late I guess, but here's the solution to your problem: Smile
