couldn't allocate dedicated server ip port etc...well, i wanted play with my friends via lan so i started a listen server. i was behind an adsl router and ns was setup to my internal ip which was 192.168.1.3 but i was shocked when ppl joined my server from the internet. i didnt forward any port or so by then.
then i started a dedicated server for internet play and forwarded ports etc. if i dont use the command +ip it works fine (with the ip 192.168.1.3) but when i add +ip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx it says couldn't allocate dedicated server ip port. i know that the port is not used by any other program and i tested if port is open and it is. how can i report my real ip to the steam servers and make the dedicated server work?
