SRCDS Steam group

Can't find server!
Followed the instructions for Install: Windows (Rev. 2). This is an XP SP2 box.

Using Game-Monitor validate my server is on line - it it not.

Here's my launch command;
C:\srcds\srcds.exe /high -GUI -game hl2mp +map dm_lockdown -maxplayers 8 -autoupdate +ip192.168.0.4 -port 27015

I am NAT'd behind a DSL router and my outside IP is

Here's the first part of my HL2MP server.cfg;
// HL2MP Server Config file
// mostly the default settings with rate limits set to prevent massive lag
// put this file (server.cfg) in the cfg folder (this file is for HL2DM SRCDS servers only)
// qUiCkSiLvEr

hostname "Half-Life 2 DeathMatch!"

IP port 27015

sv_hl2mp_weapon_respawn_time 20
sv_hl2mp_item_respawn_time 30

// set to 1 if this is a teamplay server
mp_teamplay 1

// allow or disallow damage from teammates
mp_friendlyfire 0

// how much damage is inflicted from falls, default 0
mp_falldamage 0

// set to 1 if weapons stay (immediate pickup by players without weapons)
// requires that there be additional ammo (can't pick up a weapon to get more ammo)
mp_weaponstay 0

// set to force players to respawn after death
mp_forcerespawn 1

// enable player footstep sounds
mp_footsteps 1

// enable flashlight
mp_flashlight 1

Suggestions are greatly appreciated . . . Thank you!

Sorry - I meant to mention that I'm getting a "Bad challenge from" from the GUI console.

What is this telling me?
It does showsup in my list and i can connect to it.

if this is your server: Stonehenge

if it's a server on your lan try the local ip (192.x.x.x)
yea the server works.. you must connect through the lan ip. and that bad challenge stuff is just something trying to query the server using the old method. don't worry about it.
Hey - thanks so much. I wonder why Game-Monitor web site didn't pick it up? Maybe I can't see myself there either. Again, thanks for the come back . . .
game-monitor can sometimes be very slow at picking up servers..
