RCON access problems: Here's some help
This is to all that are having trouble rconing into their srcds from an outside network (or inside for that matter.)
Now, when you start your srcds (srcds_run), you should see something like this:
Quote:Auto detecting CPU
Using default binary.
Auto-restarting the server on crash

Console initialized.
Network: IP, mode MP, dedicated Yes, ports 27015 SV / 27005 CL

This is very important. If the number next to "IP" is an internal address (not an internet address), there is a problem.,, and some others would be examples of private/internal IPs. The problem here is that when a client tries to connect to (or whatever your internet/external IP is), the server doesn't respond because it is bound to the internal address. There is one basic way to change this. Here it is:
add "-ip" to your command line when starting srcds_run. Be sure to replace with your internet IP address.

Another common problem with rcon access is opening ports. Notice the line above that says "ports 27015". It is necessary to have the 27015 UDP port open to allow clients to play in your server. Rcon, on the other hand, requires the 27015 TCP port to be open. Make sure it is open and/or forwarded. If you guys have questions about opening ports or anything about setting up a server, just post here. Or if you're really looking to contact me, e-mail me:
