TF2 Dedicated Server Not Connectable via Internet
I am on a home network with one computer hosting SRCDS and another computer I use to play the game.

I have everything correctly port forwarded.

My Dedicated server is set to the DMZ in my router.

sv_lan is set to 0.

My game shows up on the internet list with my outside IP.

When anyone else (or myself via the Internet Tab) tries to join the server it fails out and the load screen is slightly different (no VAC Icon).

My server also shows up on my computer as a LAN game. I am able to join it. But, everyone joining from the internet (including myself) gets the short load screen with no VAC Shield and error above.

I have combed this forum for solutions and I am stumped. Any suggestions?
Hmm, I guess you are all stumped.
Don't bump :l
Have you forwarded ports? If so have you done DMZ?

Answered in my initial post.

Do you have a firewall?

Nope. I have windows firewall disabled. The server is fully allowed through the proper ports on my router and is even in my router's DMZ.

I just reinstalled srcds and all I have added is the server.cfg file and I am still having the same issues.
did you specify the IP in the launch params?
I've made my server.cfg file even smaller.

Quote:hostname Guy's TF2 Server
rcon_password moo
sv_lan 0
sv_region 255

I've also tried it like this.

Quote:hostname Guy's TF2 Server
rcon_password moo
sv_lan 0
sv_region 255
ip <my ip was here, but I cut it out>

and as this

Quote:hostname Guy's TF2 Server
rcon_password moo
sv_lan 0
sv_region 255
ip <my ip was here, but I cut it out>

Even with "sv_lan 1" the game still shows up on the internet list.

The cfg files are in the c:\srcds\orangebox\tf\cfg\ folder as they should be.

I can only join the game as a lan game. I nor anyone else can join it as an internet game.
sv_region 255
I would try changing that:
eastcoast - sv_region 0
westcoast - sv_region 1
south america - sv_region 2
europe - sv_region 3
asia - sv_region 4
australia - sv_region 5
middle east - sv_region 6
africa - sv_region 7
world - sv_region 255

I've already had everything in before.

I tried less commands and nothing changed.

The master server sees me and lists me with the proper IP address.
It's a router problem, try to update your firware or anything like that, triple check if everythign is correct.

If it still doesn't work, make a direct connection with the server and see if it works then, if it does you need a new router.

Yeah that's about the only thing I could think there is.

I guess I have an excuse to buy a new toy. Thanks.
Replaced route and it now works. Thank you very much. Big Grin
