Setup Help
First here is how this computer connects to the internet.

I have Frontier DSL (they don't block the ports, I checked) that comes into a Speedstream 5200 DSL Router and out to a Windows XP SP2 Home machine.

The XP Home machine then connects to a Linksys hub and to my Ubuntu Linux Box which I'm trying to run the server on.

I think I've forwarded everything, NAT to the Home PC through the router and ports being forwarded though both the router and the XP firewall, I need to but still cannot get the server to show up in on the internet (it shows to other lan computers however).

If I run the server using

./srcds_run -console -game cstrike +map de_dust -maxplayers 16 +ip -port 27015

I get the following error

WARNING:  NNET_OpenSocket: bind: cannot assign requested address
Couldn't allocate the dedicated server UDP port

It then restarts...

If I run

./srcds_run -console -game cstrike +map de_dust -maxplayers 16

It runs through but doesn't show up outside the LAN (it can be connected to in the LAN though)

I'm not 100% sure I have all of the Windows firewall settings right or if I can even run a Server from this location.

I've gone through numerous different tutorials and how to's yet nothing has helped the situation.

Can anyone out there help me out? (If it would work what are the exact settings I need for the firewall and router?)
okay, I'll admit that I didn't read your whole post. Nevertheless, while playing on your server from your LAN, it will not show up under internet. But, other people playing on your server from outside of your LAN will see it under internet. Thats just how it is.

That's not exactly true. You can bypass that 'problem' by editing your hosts file. Check my explanation about this here.

If I understand correctly, this is how you're network is set up:

Internet => Speedstream 5200 DSL Router => WinXP SP2 Home PC => Linksys hub => Ubuntu Linux box

So the router and the hub are only connected through the WinXP PC? Unless you manage to make all the traffic go 'through' your WinXP PC it won't work. Connect the Linksys hub with the Ubuntu Linux box directly to the router (or connect the Ubuntu Linux box directly without the hub), then it should work if all is configured correctly.
May the Source be with you...
