SRCDS Steam group

HT; steam browser issues..
Hey all, here's my setup:

4 x 3.0GHz P4-era Xeons (32-bit)
1GB RAM (moving to 4GB soon!)
3x 10k U160 SCSI disks in RAID Z (probably irrelevant)
Running one (currently six-slot, for testing purposes) TF2 server instance.
Startup command: ./srcds_run -console -game tf -hostport 27015 +maxplayers 24 +map ctf_2fort

I'm wondering if I should enable hyperthreading on my server. I'm going to go ahead and guess no, as srcds isn't multi-threaded (afaik). Can anyone educate me otherwise or confirm that HT adds no performance benefit?

Also I seem to be having trouble getting my server to display on the Steam Browser. My friends can connect to it via the Steam Console and can also see it in their recent history, but can't seem to find it in the main browser tab. Any thoughts on this?
No, don't enable HT because then it basically limits the usage to half of whats available for the server. Also what ports did you forward?

Make sure your firewall isn't blocking the ports for it.

-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m udp -p udp --dport 27000:27015 -j ACCEPT
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 27020:27050 -j ACCEPT
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m udp -p udp --dport 1200 -j ACCEPT

That's what I have in my iptables and it works ok.
Pengy, thanks for the info on HT.

I'm at work right now so I can't investigate my network settings too much (stupid Java-based router config..), but according to the port is closed.

The server is sitting on the DMZ but i've also forwarded ports 27000 to 27100 to its IP. I had just assumed that the ports were open because my friends could connect. Guess I made an ass of myself! I'll have to putz around in my router config when I get home to see if I can't clear the issue up.

Bigtin, my FreeBSD install doesn't have a firewall AFAIK (gasp!), nor do I have iptables. I'll confirm that I don't have any firewall running on the router when I get home though.
