SRCDS Steam group

Firewall Ports
I installed Source DS on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, but I can't seem to connect to it from a client--probably because of the firewall on the server. What ports need to be opened up on the server, and what protocol needs to flow through those ports? (TCP/UDP) I already opened up 27015:UDP but still can't connect. Any advice appreciated.
Don't know myself for sure but quoting directly from

Steam ports
UDP 1200 (used for friends service)
UDP 27000 to 27015 inclusive
TCP 27030 to 27039 inclusive
Computers running Dedicated Servers need these ports open
UDP: 27015 and 27020 (default HLDS, SRCDS and HLTV port)
TCP: 27015 (SRCDS Rcon port)

I have Fedora and I know it installed some sort of firewall during the OS installation process. I know I have to open those ports in my router but do I have to do anything with them in regards to the local firewall?
I would imagine that the firewall it installed was iptables, you will probably need to open the required ports, i'd suggest googling if your not sure how to go about it.
