Problems with getting Garrysmod Dedicated server to appear for others, and connect.
Well currently, I've been trying to host my own dedicated server, I've opened plenty of ports which is enough, and I every method I've been trying to use is proven useless, I'm trying to aim for a dedicated server that can show up on the masterlist and be able to have other people to connect it, and no, I am not hosting it on my computer by which I'll be playing it, I have a entirely seperate computer for hosting the server. But my biggest concern to why it is not going up properly is how I am currently launching the server.
Here's the SRCDS launch up .bat

@echo off
echo Protecting srcds from crashes…
echo If you want to close srcds and this script, close the srcds window and type Y depending on your language followed by Enter.
title Watchdog
echo (%time%) srcds started.
start /wait orangebox\srcds.exe -console -nocrashdialog -nohltv -game garrysmod -port 27015 +clientport 27005 +hostport 27015 +tv_port 27020 -maxplayers 10 -ip “” +map gm_construct
echo (%time%) WARNING: srcds closed or crashed, restarting.
goto srcds
Remove +clientport 27005, +hostport 27015, +tv_port 27020.

As long as your port forward your ports correctly for the server, you don't need to define them in the startup command line unless you want to change them. You already defined the server's port with -port so you should remove +hostport.

Put -port 27015 and -ip in the startup command line.

srcds.exe -console -game garrysmod  -ip -port 27015 -maxplayers 10 +map gm_construct -nocrashdialog -nohltv

Post a screenshot of your port fowarding. Forwarding too many ports can be blame for this problem. Especially if you start playing with the 27005's
