Which IP did you use to connect?
The console is fine, you often get that error. Make sure your ports are forwarded correctly (27015-27045) and that it isn't behaving as a LAN server

(sv_lan 0).

If this isn't working for you, try typing "heartbeat" into console. That forces the server to announce itself to the Steam Master Servers.

Most likely, your ports are not forwarded correctly, however. Is that server hosted on your local network? Try "connect <server IP:port> in the Counter Strike console.
Also, try sv_region 0 if the above does not work.
thekidheat (and for anyone else reading this who want's help fixing their server by posting on this site),

The first thing that comes to mind is I'm wondering if you are even running an SRCDS server or a listen server using Steam? I have at least a dozen other questions about how you're running your server before we can help you fix the issue.
