Good question.

I imagine it'd start an internet server. Wait a while and see if someone joins after it starts up.

Yes, it starts an internet game unless you specify it to be a lan game. I can't remember the command off hand, but if you're starting a dedicatd server on your own computer and are looking for it, don't see it in the server list, add -port 27016 to the command line. This makes it so you can play from the same computer that you're hosting off of.

oh... well i always almost had the server 27015 and the conenct client at 27016.. :/

Of course its net.
Who knows why you would ever want to host a lan game from a comp and not play in it. It's not like the server will lag or anything but I guess there's always someone.

Misfire has done that on his machine and if he joins, it lags the hell out of everyone.

sv_lan usually does not do anything, to have a lan you need a LAN ip 198.X.X.X (i think 198)

mr.chris i fixed the lagging prob when i join my own server.

just have to set priority to above normal and its fine.

Commands for LAN server are: sv_lan 1 and +nomaster (or nomasters, not sure).

If you start without these commands, the server is viewable and usable through both LAN and internet.
