View Full Version : cannot connect to master server?
01-10-2005, 06:04 PM
I am setting up CS :S for my friend on a linux server I am running. I went through all the issues of installing it and got it running now it seems to hang at
"Adding master server 126.96.36.199:27011
Adding master server 188.8.131.52:27011"
now i have cheked the other threads pertaining to this and its a link loop that takes you back to the same one.
It seems as if I cannot get added to the server and all my ports are open so does anyone actually know what is causing this?

Make sure you are not blocking:
UDP 27015 (or whatever port your server is running on)
Now bear in mind that 27010 and 27011 will not show as 'open' when the server is running however these are used for steam authentication which included registration on the master servers.

do i need to have purchased HL2 ? I am jsut setting it up on my box for him and his buddies to play i dont even have the game!! is this going to affect all of this ?

Nope, you don't need to purchase hl2. At most all you need to do is create a new steam account...all that is in the readme.

hmm what does it need the authentication for then? well I have installed as per http://japje.nl/steam/install and still no go it hangs at the auth server now that I added the -nomaster switch is there a no auth switch? I get to the authentication pat and it just hangs!!! Is there and official steam install guide THAT WORKS?

First of all you are running the classic hlds, NOT Source Dedicated Server like I think you want to run.
You must create a free steam account to run the dedicated server (which it seems like you have done but I don't know why are setting 'nomaster')
You need to:<path>/steam -command update -game "Counter-Strike Source" -username <whatever> -password <whatever>
Now keep in mind that you can't do this in the old hlds directory, steam will complain so make a new directory, copy ONLY the steam binary then do the above
If you set 'nomaster' then your server won't be listed when players browse for games. Usualy this option is combined with "+sv_lan 1" to create, LAN only server but again, I don't think you want to do that.
Furthermore it does not look like your server hangs. The last messages you get when the server starts is "adding master xxxxx"
