I too have rebuilt my server. Now when i look for (or have a friend on differant ip look for) I can not find my server on the list. I have read through the forums and have done everything suggested. SV_lan 0 and the ports are correctly forwarded. Please help!

Try navigating to your router control panel and seeing if it has a firewall on board. If it does, try opening the proper ports, and if that doesnt work, put your server computer in the DMZ. Also check your personal firewall on your computer.

I have turned off my internal firewall, put my server on DMZ and still nothing! Sv_lan 0 and everything else looks great, but I still cannot find it onthe list! HELP!

Ok, first of all, the most fundamental principle of hosting your own server is that YOU will not be able to see it in the Steam server list. Everyone else will though. So, in order to make sure your server is up, i recommend going to http://www.gametiger.com . Run a search for your server by the name. If you see it in their list, then you have nothing to worry about. Also, make sure sv_region is set to 255 in your server.cfg.

To join you server from within you LAN, simply open up Steam's Server dialog and click on the LAN tab. Your server should be in this list, otherwise something is very wrong with your server.

I have been having my friend look for the server from his house. Is this somthing new? I am rebuilding my server and was able to see it before! I will try to set sv_region 255 when I get home. I hope there is nothing wrong since since its a fresh re build. Thanks!

No that did not work either! Sv_region was set to 1, I changed that put it on DMZ, and ..........nothing. I can play on lan, but the gametiger.com could not find my server. MMMMMMMM, I am going to throw the computer off the bridge!
