SRCDS Steam group

Just one more noob problem with SRCDS...
Hello everyone!

Decided to start my own CS:S server... But there I got problems...
I think I did everything I needed to succeed, but something is wrong... I can start my server fine, but it seems like it isn't online. I have forwarded ports, as I will show you in screenshots.
I can find my server in LAN list or in favorites but can't connect, it seems like it's offline, although SRCDS command prompt says it's on. Even if I change map through SRCDS, I can see that in my server list, but can't connect, connection window just freezes at 2 brick.
I don't really know what I did wrong (never hosted server) so if some of you more experienced guys could help me with that I would be very grateful.
By the way, can I ask what are recommended server settings like max number of players and so?


Start command line for SRCDS:
C:\SRCDS\orangebox\srcds.exe -console -game cstrike -port 27015 -maxplayers 10 +map de_dust2 -autoupdate -tickrate 100 (My IP is static / I have tried all combinations with -ip and -port commands, but all I got were error things)

My PC spec:
- Asus AM3 nVidia nForce 750a (M4N72-E)
- AMD Phenom II X4 940 BE (3.0 GhZ)
- Mushkin Value Series 2GB x2
- nVidia GeForce GTX 260 55nm 896MB
- Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Thank you once more for your time!
Add ip - to your startup line.

Delete all of your port forwarding.

Open port 27015 TCP and UDP

Make sure there are no other instances of srcds running on your system. From your console screenshot there appears to be something bound to the game ports.

Make sure your firewall on your router is allowing all outbound connections, do the same for your local machine.

Also you probably won't be able to host more than 4 people on that upload speed. :/
Looking for a game server? Visit and pick one up as low as $2.50 / mo!

No problem, what was the solution?

Yeah, maybe it will help someone with same/similar problem!

- I added the -ip into the start up command line
- I deleted all port forwards
- I forwarded port TCP 27015/27015
- I forwarded port UDP 27015/27015

And done. Maybe it was messed up with all those port forwards before...
