Server IP:

So here's my problem:

Im having problems connecting to my own server, it doesn't come up in the Internet list, it just comes up in LAN. I think my ports are blocked, but I have unblocked them from the router page but it didn't seem to make any difference. I even turned off Windows Firewall (I don't have any other firewall) but still, no change. I DONT have a static IP address. I made it static a while ago but after a few minutes the internet did not work and I had to make it back to dynamic.

Im also confused as to what I should put in the box where it says IP, then i typed 103, but im not sure what to type there, help? Look in the screenshot
EDIT1: I changed 103 to 100 because my internal IP is

Thank you for your help in advance Smile.
You will always see it on the LAN list. Others will see it on the internet server list.

Also don't forward so many ports. Only forward 27015 UDP and TCP... That's all you're going to need anymore.
Looking for a game server? Visit and pick one up as low as $2.50 / mo!
Iam able to help you.

type cmd in the search at start>search
press enter
In command prompte you type "Ipconfig" without "

Now you look for IpV4 Address

This is your Enternal IP or lanIP, the last 3 digits of that you put in the port things at your router.
( < This might be your standard gateway, as in your are opening your Ports to your router Toungue)

On my GMod Server i added my Enternal IP and my External IP to my favorites and now if its not online, only the lan one shows up on favorites. Easy way to check server Smile

Hope it helped.
