Firewall blocking Left 4 Dead 2 Server


Go to solution Solved by Nicholas,

I created a server, did everything but i still cant connect to the server.

 

I know its the firewall because i can connect using the ip method (console command "connect ipserver"). Other than that, i cant connect.

 

My question is: how to allow the server to connect ? Allow the ports.

 

I tried everything and didnt worked.

 

This is what it looks like

In the Personal firewall is automatic mode.

I even added a port forward in the router configuration

In the Personal firewall is automatic mode.

 

Switch it to learning mode then connect. Then switch back to Automatic after successful connection.

In automatic mode, all uninitiated incoming communication is blocked. Since you are using a server application, you must create a rule to allow incoming communication for the application. In learning mode, the necessary rules will be created automatically.

Sorry for the delay. I have deleted the server before because it wasn't working. It took a while but its finished now.

 

I will try it and say what happened afterwards

 

thx for the replies

Changing to Learning mode did the trick! It worked!

 

But....i was trying to install SourceMod and Metamod and had to restart the server. I did but after starting it again, it wont start. :(

 

I looked into the server log and says Socket bind failed (WSAEACCES)

This is my internal ip: 192.168.1.2

 

What may be the problem ?

 

 

[edit]

Its working now! The problem: automatic mode.

The server worked again after i switched again to learning mode. It was blocking the connection. Dont know which port should i allow it but as long the server works in this mode, its fine for me.

 

Thanks to everyone!
