SRCDS Steam group

Dedicated server garrysmod HELP
Hello I've created a srcds server and my server only apears in the LAN list.
I don't know how to change it to a public server. I've tried ''sv_lan 0'' but it did not seem to work because my friend tried to join and it just said ''connection lost after 4 retries.''

so please help![/size]
have to open ports
First of all, if you are on the same network as the server, you will not see it on the internetlist, only in the LAN list.

I got this from the FAQ section of the forum:

1No one can join the server? The server doesn't show up on the master list?

Things you need to know how to do:
How to find the internal IP of your server
Make sure you have forwarded your ports. Goto Then on the main page click on the Routers hyperlink, then click on your router on the next page. Then find "Steam Server" and follow the directions.

Still doesn't work? Or, already did that?

Next thing to try is to DMZ your router. In basic terms that really means directing all unknown traffic to a designated IP address. In your router homepage, there should be a DMZ option under advanced topics or it may even be under normal router configuration. Just place your internal IP of the server in the IP space, and you are ready to go.
*Note make sure you have a firewall on your server because DMZing pretty much opens the server up to attacks.

Make sure your firewall (if you have one) has the necessary ports open. Even try turning off the firewall to see if the server can connect without any firewall. If it can, you need a new firewall.

Other than triple checking your ports, the only other options are:
A. Your router is incompatible with SRCDS
B. Your ISP is blocking the required ports
To check for A., if you are able to, plug the server directly into your modem, cable box, etc., and see if the server can be seen. If it can't, chances are that your ISP is blocking the ports. You could phone your ISP and ask for the ports to be unblocked, but beware, bust ISP's TOS do not allow servers.

Pray and make a post in the correct section.
