ok Fixed with Home server 2011 you need to set a rule under the firewall adv settings for both the app and the port in incoming and outgoing

still one small problem it not taking my hostname out of the server.cfg but i can change it after it starts
Add hostname "name" instead. Try it. And add +exec server.cfg in startup parameters.

did not work

C:\TF2Server\orangebox\srcds.exe -console -game tf -tickrate 33 -ip - port 27015 +map arena_badlands -maxplayers 10 +exec server.cfg

and tried hostname "name" and hostname name

if this is the only problem i have then so be, i can live with setting the host name after starting the server
Weird.. Try to add +hostname "name" in the startup parameters.

no luck i deleted the host name out of the config file and did

C:\TF2Server\orangebox\srcds.exe -console +hostname "test" -game tf -tickrate 33 -ip - port 27015 +map arena_badlands -maxplayers 10 +exec server.cfg

C:\TF2Server\orangebox\srcds.exe -console +hostname test -game tf -tickrate 33 -ip - port 27015 +map arena_badlands -maxplayers 10 +exec server.cfg

still loads as Team Fortress 2 Dedicated Server
found the problem config_areana.cfg had a host name command in it
