ok, i've tried everything, looked over these boards a hundred times, it feels, but yet i still can't get udp port 27015 to correctly open to start an internet server w/ steam.
i read vadakill's guide, got everything set up, set my ip as the WAN ip, which works when hosting other games, made the machine the dmz host, opened port 27015 and all others mentioned in vadakill's guide but to no avail. even used some other ips to see if that was the problem, but no, i keep getting the error msg this guy got http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/in...showtopic=62495
i'm running the steam internet server, well trying, on a 350 p2, 80 meg of ram, 10 base nic. i know it isn't much but it runs other games almost flawless.
i have a seimens (insert laughter) 2602 2 port router, which i'm connecting to through a 10/100 hub.
i'm also kinda n00bish at this and have no idea what ssh is from the afore mentioned post.
anyway, i think i've posted all information i can think of. any help is gladly appreciated and i'll be checking this everyday if anyone needs anymore info to help. tia
