View Full Version : How to make L4D2 dedicated server more public?

05-03-2012, 09:11 PM
Hi everyone,
I am currently renting a dedicated server from a provider and was just wondering if anyone knows how I can make my server more available to the public? I realize there is a current problem on Steams behalf that causes L4D2 clients to have difficulty viewing servers but I want to ensure I am doing my part to help clients view my server.

So far my research on the net has told me in my server.cfg I should add the following:

sv_steamgroup_exclusive 0
//Do not set sv_search_key because hinders making server public
sv_lan 0
sv_region 255
setmaster add
setmaster add
setmaster add

Does anyone know if I should have the above setmaster code in my server.cfg? I'am located in Australia and am not sure about the IP addresses, I am guessing they refer to Steam's offical master servers for clients to obtain a server list.

Thanks for any help.
