Okay, so i was following a tutorial to set up a Garrys Mod dedicated server, and all was going well. My friends had issues connecting and got the connection failed after 4 retries error. I played around with ports and launch options and eventually got it to work. I don't remember playing around with anything. but now they get the same error again. How can i fix this and play with my friends?

My .bat opened in notebook
My Ports

Any help is appreciated, thank you so much

NAT adds security to the network by keeping the private IP addresses hidden from the outside world. There are three NAT types to describe your connectivity to other players over the Internet:

Open NAT - This means that your gaming console has the ability to connect to anyone’s games, host games, and other users will be able to find and connect to the game you are hosting.

Moderate NAT - This means that your connectivity to other players is neither limited nor open. You will be able to connect to other players but some functions will be limited.

Strict NAT - This means that you have limited connectivity with other players and players who have Strict or Moderate NAT will not be able to join your gaming session.

Thank you for this advice. It help me in my current situation. Pro Oxnard Concrete
awesome post i love it keep posting more!
First, try to make the setup process as easy as possible for them. Put all the information about how to get connected on a single page so that they don't have to dig around for it. You can visit to download finance templates. Also include links to other places where they can learn more about setting up their own dedicated server or hosting company.
