    Post Servers not appearing on server list

    First off, let me start by saying . Second, my main problem is that servers won't show up for me on my server list 95% of the time, and the 5% that do show up aren't accessible. I've tried:
    • Checking my ports and adding ones that were supposedly missing.
    • Reinstalled Sven Co-op and all its mods I had installed.
    • Reinstalled Half-Life altogether.
    • Browsed the Internet for forums that had this problem.
    • Consulted my friends and family who have any technical know-how at all.

    I've just about exhausted everything that I know how to do, and I'm ready to give up Sven if nothing works out. (Not a threat to the mod or anything, just want to be happy.)
    plz halp

    Re: Servers not appearing on server list

    I'm sure you've done most of this already, but check this thread I wrote 9 years ago on the issue. Most of that information should still be relevant today.

    Skip to the section "Finally, knowing when your server is added." first -- check that those 3 lines (or very similar) appear in the server console (they won't be logged to file). Also try submitting "status" in the server console (or via RCON), paste results.

    Re: Servers not appearing on server list

    I think my friend here did read your thread but hes still having connection issues, example he can't connect to this server via console even:

    68.232.166.64:27015
    Keen ~Map of the year - gabesing: in console
    Keen ~Map of the year - gabesing: does it work?
    Bulbo Buttons: Connect to server
    Bulbo Buttons: Retrying connection
    Bulbo Buttons: Connecting to 68.232.166.64:27015...
    Retrying 68.232.166.64:27015...
    Keen ~Map of the year - gabesing: wow okay
    Keen ~Map of the year - gabesing: damn

    If the server isn't connectable directly there's no way it'll appear in the browser.

    The server did appear in the browser for me, he seems incapable of directly connecting to any servers that I can see.

    Re: Servers not appearing on server list

    Update:
    Bulbo Buttons: okay i figured something new out
    Bulbo Buttons: it isnt just sven coop or half life
    Bulbo Buttons: its all my fucking steam servers
    consulting the Steam Help Pages may help with this but if anyone knows anything if they could post would be helpful thx

    I've directed him to use http://www.game-monitor.com/ and http://gametracker.com/ for now to locate servers to connect to

    Okay, so it worked for a day, don't know what happened, and then it stopped working again. Same problem, same symptoms.

    Rundown of what I did while I was absent: Some real world bullsh!t, had to repay the Internet bill (they shut me off), and left the computer alone for a day or two.

    Re: Servers not appearing on server list

    we have discovered something quite interesting. when mr slav resets his router, he can join servers again. we only tested this on hl1 at the time, but before the router was reset, he couldn't join it at all. with this additional information, mr adamr can you make a diagnosis?

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: HE CAN JOIN SVENCOOP SERVERS TOO AFTER HE HAS RESET HIS ROUTER. HOW CULD DIS HAPPEN?
