I run different Half-Life and Half-Life 2 mods. After a recent Steam update, I don't know which one, no one is able to connect to my NS server anymore. Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

The specific error I have when attempting to join my server when I am running it in lan mode is "Steam Validation Rejected". This is a client side error and there are no apparent errors on the server side.

    In case anyone has the same problem and comes looking for the answer. Inside your root hlds folder there is a file called "steam_appid.txt". In order for mods to work the number in there has to be "70". My server startup script now enters the correct number for whatever mod I am running on the particular night before it starts up the server.
