I run a hlds on my comp, I cant connect to it from the same comp..
I was able to with WON, but installing steam broke it all..
It says Invalid Steam Userid ticket
I tried deleting clientregistry.blob for both....
I've tried logging out..
Its not the hlds, and its not the client, its steam

    If you're running a server from the *same* computer that you're trying to connect to it from, I believe you need to run a listen server, not a dedicated server. (Open NS->Internet games->create, etc)

    Nope, I don't want to run a listenserver..
    I prefer leaving it on, incase anyone else wants to play..

    This WAS possible with won, just getting steam seems to have broken it

    I can get the ports steam needs pretty easily, they are all forwarded to my comp..
    I really don't think they should conflict, excpet for the steam auth port, which I cant change sad.gif

    This indicates that it was fixed some time ago. You may want to redownload HLTV, or get the server package and use that to run the HLTV setup.

    Nope, your all wrong, I just figured it out yesterday..
    Use the servers LAN address to connect to it.
    I could use 192.168.1.2, 127.0.0.1, or whatever my normal ip is..
    The problem is, is that if you dont use the lan one steam does not see it as a server on a lan, so it uses the conflicting ports to connect to the auth servers, this really needs to be fixed to include 127.0.0.1 in the lan..

    So, the solution is connect using the servers LAN ip, not the internet one
    Note: Your lan address may vary from mine, use ipconfig to determing it (WinXP, possibly 2k) or winipcfg in win 9x

    The easiest way is to have your Server in a seperate directory than steam. ie: C:\HLServer for your server.
    and C:\Steam or whatever your steam directory may be. This works for me; but I don't often play on the same cpu as my server.

    you have to make your client port different from your server port. Off hand, I'm not sure how to do this but the easiest way to is make your server port different with the command line -port 27025 or something.

    Your server is going to get raped though anytime you log in. *Same* computer = gg server.
