Can you ask your friend to invite you into the game.
It is in the setting Steam Message options.

Are you trying to connect to the correct IP address?

If your friend is on LAN with his server and you try and join him, Steam will try and connect to an invalid LAN IP address on your own network. Class C network IP addresses are usually 192.168.x.x, which are unroutable over the internet.

Tell your friend to get his public IP address and give it to you. He can use sites like "what's my ip address" to get this information.

It is in the setting Steam Message options.

The IP information is automatically sent via Steam.

I've already done that, and it just says "Server Not Responding"

Looks like you are trying to join your friend who is connected to his/her own server via LAN.I know you said if before but you can try typing "connect hosts_IP" in your console. Replace hosts_IP with your friends WAN IP address that they get when going to www.whatsmyip.org.

That's the only place where I could find the server info like the other guy was asking. I normally do connect with his external ip in console
