My server is running: Active Directory, DHCP, DNS, RRAS, Print/File Server. It has two network adapters one is WAN facing and one is LAN and uses NAT to connect the lan computers to the internet. CSS is installed on this server and I can connect to it from a lan computer through steam on the internet tab of the server browser but no one else can connect to it even if they use the IP to connect.

Please help me.
Get rid of the -ip in your command line.

you got sv_lan 0 ?
sv_lan is set to 0 and I removed the -ip from the startup command, still not working. Any other ideas?

hmmm... Does it say "Server not responding" when other join...?
If and I have the same problem
Yes it does.
I would assume a system like that has a firewall... Make sure you have your ports opened in your firewall.
Looking for a game server? Visit and pick one up as low as $2.50 / mo!
All the necessary porst were open on the firewall.

I managed to get it working. I must of mixed up some ports because I redid all the port forwarding through NAT on RRAS and everything works. But it only works when the ip parameter is not in the startup script, thanx for the help.
