SRCDS Steam group

Can't connect to my TF2 server.
Okay hopefully this is in the correct place.
I can't connect to my server. I'm running it on a dedicated AWS server so port forwarding shouldn't be a problem but I did open the ports in windows firewall just in case.
I'm running Windows Server 2008 32x and I put an exception in for srdcs, and then I run my server, the only errors I get is "Failed to load Steam services" which I read isn't a problem. Here's what I see in the console.

My tf.bat looks like this
orangebox\srcds.exe -console -game tf +ip
+hostport 27015 +map ctf_2fort +maxplayers 19

The server has no mods installed at this moment so it can't be anything from that. I'm guessing there is something messing up with the AWS IP. Has anyone successfully set a server up on Amazon's servers?
Turn off your firewall completely, restart the server and test it. If you see it and can connect, you know the firewall is blocking connections. If that's the case, make sure you set the firewall correctly. There is more than one port to open for it to work. The ports can be found in a simple search here on the site.

Let us know how it goes.
