TF2 Dedicated Server Connection Issue
I have an issue with my dedicated server (run on the same router, but a different PC). I can access it on lan, but when i use the connect command and the external ip+port cimbo for my server, my friends say it says "server not responding", and when I connect (from the internet tab, NOT lan tab(Lan tab is fine) it gets stuck on parsing game.

Host PC:
Server OS: Windows XP SP3
Processor: AMD Sempron 3000+
Ram: 2GB
Game(s): Team Fortress 2 Dedicated Server
Start Up Command: c:\HLserver\orangebox\srcds.exe -console -game tf -hostport 27015 +maxplayers 24 +map ctf_2fort
Admin Mods: MetaMod 1.8, SourceMod 1.3
Ports Forwarded: 27000-27040 for UDP and TCP

Any other info you need, like server.cfg, just ask.
Maybe this will help:

Find out the internal ip of the computer that is running the server.
To find out he internal ip (router ip) of the computer you run your server on:
Click start--> Run ---> type cmd then click ok. You will then see a black window open up. Type this: ipconfig and press enter. You should see something like this:

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
© Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

C:\Documents and Settings\xxxxx>ipconfig

Windows IP Configuration

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection 4:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : your cable providers name/ip
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . :<--ip of computer running server
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . :
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :

Then in the command line add it like so:

c:\HLserver\orangebox\srcds.exe -console -game tf +ip -hostport 27015 +maxplayers 24 +map ctf_2fort

It should show on Lan and internet. Hope that helps ... Cool
