View Full Version : Can't play on my own Server

12-25-2004, 01:26 AM
I just loaded a dedicated CS:S DS on my Xeon 3.6 box here at home. I am able to launch the server and then once I run the steam client, I can see my server and try to join but get an error as shown below...I think others outside my LAN can joing too but here is the IP if anyone is nice enough to let me know other wise.

Server Info

- Intel Xeon 3.6
- 2x W.D. Raptors running Raid 0
- ATI X800 Pro
- Running Linux Fedora Core 3
- 2 GB of Corsair 3200 DDR RAM


It already has my user id but asks for a password and no matter how many times I use the right password, I can't join.

Can I not play from my dedicated server?

You should check Steam Support first, I'm sure it covers this problem.

Anyway, I'm sure it's something to do with you being on the same network as the server - using the same IP.

Any idea where I can look to fix this? I have searched the forums and can't seem to find anything that covers this.

Thanks for any info...
Where is Steam Support?

I also couldnt connect back through my firewall to the public IP so I just went to the lan setting and it sees my server and I play along with everyone outside that has joined (Same server). Hope this helps!
