SRCDS Steam group

Initial joining problem
I have tried to find this problem on google. No luck.

over LAN i join the server and right away my ping is ~70...over about 5-10 seconds it drops to 1-5.

when someone else from outside the LAN joins, its about 200-300 then within 5-10 seconds it drops to the usual 30-40.

anything I can do to fix?

I am using this to start the server:
./srcds_run -console -game cstrike +map aim_ak_colt +maxplayers 10 -tickrate 100

and this is my server.cfg

Why would you care about the ping in the beginning of the game? It always happens to every single server I go to, and the ping in the scoreboard is not accurate, use net_graph 3 to find out your real ping

ive never noticed it for any other servers...seems to be a little problem on mine though...
peoples pings are super high when they first join. it spikes up everyone else for about 5-10 seconds
Do you have some kind of software firewall?

not at all. hardware firewall, however i have made sure this is not the issue.
I say this as a little gps, it is nothing to worry about, it is almost impossible to avoid. Sometimes u can be lucky to avoid this, but it is nothing to cary about.
As Pengy said, the scoreboard does not in anyway show accurate ping, use the netgraph_4 to show your real ping.
net_graph 3 or 4 will work (underscore before graph)

well its possible to lower it. assuming you use custom maps,sounds,skins,etc when a person joins they have to download the files of the computer/server it is hosted off of. This is what causes this to happen, if you use a fast dl(web space) to have the maps(or any custom thing) download from this will not happen.

refer to this tut for help about fast dl which utilizes the sv_downloadurl command
