cant get server to start
Server OS: windows xp 32 bit
Processor: amd athlon 64 x2 2.01
Ram: In GB. 1gb
Game(s): counter strike source
Start Up Command: C:\SRCDS\srcds.exe -console -game cstrike -tickrate 33 -ip -port 27015 -maxplayers 10 +map cs_office
Admin Mods: none

Well I cant get the server to start up when I put in my external ip to make a public server. The error I get is "'Engine error' 'Couldn't allocate dedicated server UDp port.'"

I have ports 27000 through 27020 open to my machine "" but to no avail.

(It has no problem launching when its a LAN server with my internal ip in place.)

Thanks for your help
change -ip to -ip

i thought that would make it a LAN only server, since i am behind a router. I would like to have a internet server (public)

It does make it an internet server.

It will launch with that ip (as it did before) but it only shows up through the LAN tab and not the internet. Am I missing something or do you have any other thoughts.

Thank you for your time
It will ALWAYS show up on the LAN for you. Others should be able to see it from the internet as long as you set up port forwarding correctly.

Sorry for the long reply, I was out of town. Thank you for your time.
