Question TF2 Dedicated server 'STEAM validation rejected'

I have a 'STEAM validation rejected' error when I trying to connect in to my server. About 1 month ago everything was alright. I've tryed to re-download my Dedicated server, I've read a lot of post, firewall won't block it, but I still can't play in my server

1. Go to folder X:/.../steamapps/YOUR_ACCOUNT/source 2007 dedicated server/tf/
2. Create a new .txt file
3. Give a name: steam_appid.txt
4. Open it and write: 440
5. Save changes

It should work now.
