SRCDS Steam group

Only some people can join my server
So I've had a working CSS server for a long time, and now all of a sudden people cant connect to my server, but some people can. The people that cant connect right now.. were able to connect in the past.

I port forwarded 27015.

I give people my external IP:27015.. to connect however what I have noticed is that when connecting to my CSS Server, in console menu it says

connecting (MYEXTERNALIP):27015
connected (MYEXTERNALIP):64421 (some wierd port)

The people that can connect to my server (which is only 1 of my friends and he can only connect sometimes) see the same exact thing when connecting.

Does my router need more ports to be forwarded? If so which ones? And btw my router is DI- 524 meaning you cant port forward more than like 5 ports. I port forwarded UDP + TCP. Also people can see my server on the master list... they just cant connect... they get two bars and it doesn't work after 4 retries.

my srcds start up line is:

"D:\Program Files\Valve\HLServer\orangebox\srcds.exe" -game cstrike -autoupdate +maxplayers 6 +map de_dolls

This is what my server.cfg looks like:

// server name
hostname "Alpha Omega"

// rcon passsword
rcon_password "(not showing)"

// Server password
sv_password "(Not showing)"

What ports do you have forwarded already?

Honestly the only port that really needs to be open is 27015 TCP and UDP and forwarded to your servers local IP. and 27020 if you're using SourceTV
Looking for a game server? Visit and pick one up as low as $2.50 / mo!
i have forwarded 27015
Also make sure the ports are open on your firewall.

What ports? The firewall has opened 27015. Only one port...
You will need 27015 both UDP and TCP, and I would open 27020 UDP and TCP if you plan to allow SourceTV.
