Issues launching Dedicated Server


I'm having some issue starting my dedicated server. In the past I didnt have any issues, but now things are different. When doind a ./srcds_run -console -game cstrike -map de_dust -maxplayers 24 -tickrate 66 -ip -port 27015 it gets stuck at this point:

Hooking voiceserver
maxplayers set to 24
Network: IP, mode MP, dedicated Yes, ports 27015 SV / 27005 CL

Yes I have forwarded the right ports to right ip address. And I put it through a steam update many times.. As I said, in the past I havent had any issues up until now.. Im running this on a Debian Sarge Linux 3.1 box. If you can please let me know how to fix this, much appreciated.

Is this ip assigned to your box anywhere? -ip

If not the server can't bind an ip address.

I launch mine without an ip option in the launch command. If you do this you will not be able to rcon the server because the server will bind to and for most computers that is a internal machine ip. You will be able to connect if it is on a lan, or if it is behind a router and you have the ports forwarded to the lan ip of the server machine.

If you are behind a router and want to use the ip command you can use the lan ip of the server in the launch command and this will allow you to rcon the server if connected from inside the lan.
I believe the correct flags are "+ip", "+map" and "+maxplayers", not "-".

That would explain why a map isn't loading after you started the server.
