- Steam or Standalone?
- Singleplayer or multiplayer?
- Error message?
- Operating system
I'm trying to set up a multiplayer server for myself and a friend and have followed the instructions to download the dedicated server from SteamCMD as well as to run the server itself. I should say here that I have never run a server like this before and am unfamiliar with a lot of the stuff being mentioned. However, I was able to successfully get the server downloaded from SteamCMD and have set up port forwarding on my router. I did this by setting up the default port as 2455 and allowed ports 2454 through 2459 on my port forwarding from my router. I also gave the server a name on the server properties file by opening it with notepad. When I run the win_startupscript, it looks like it is connected and has a message saying "Steam Servers Connected" with a long number and IP address. However, when I log into the game client and look at the multiplayer servers listed, I don't see my server listed.
Any thoughts on what I could have missed? Also, I appreciate any patience others have for me as I try to understand the terminology being used as I was completely new to things like port forwarding, steamcmd, etc. before starting this.
