SRCDS Steam group

Server not listed on Steam
I know this has been covered 100 times, but i've read through the threads and can't find the answer to my problem. I'm obviously not as smart as I think I am.

I just installed it today. It's running and working for anyone who knows the IP address of it.

C:\SRCDS\srcds.exe -console -game cstrike +maxplayers 20 +map de_dust

I have "IP" in the server.cfg file

The machine hosting the game is on a private IP behind a firewall. The firewall has the following ports forwarded to the machine's private IP

UDP 1200
UDP 27000-27015
UDP 27020
TCP 27030-27039
TCP 27015

What am I missing? Originally I thought the problem was because my dynamic NAT address was and the one to one NAT address incoming was I read a thread where people with multiple IP's had to host the game server on the "outbound" or Dynamic NAT address. I modified my firewall so my outbound (DNAT) address now matches. That didn't cure it. Darn thing still won't list. I'm fit to be tied here...
Dedicated Servers need:
UDP: 27015 and 27020 (only 2 UDP ports)
TCP: 27015 (SRCDS Rcon port)

1) Try removing the IP from server.cfg it is probably not relevant unless you have several network cards. I might also mean your internal IP.
(I am not sure)

2) Restart server. Wait few minutes.

3) Go to
and check if the 27015 port is open.
If not, your firewall is not working as expected.
It blocks.

Remove/disable temporarily the firewall.
Try again. If it works, you server is ok.
Then concentrate to fix the firewall.

It may take up to 15 minutes sometimes before the
master server announces your server. But normally it is immediate.

Good luck.

Don't you just add sv_lan 0 to your server.cfg as this var registers your server with the master servers publishing your server to the public.
