    Sven DS Not working Properly!

    Hello! I'm trying to host a server in order to play with friends but when i verify if my port is open i get this message error:

    "Connection Timed out"

    This only happens with GoldSource Games (I tried also with Cs 1.6 but i get the same message)

    Nowadays i'm hosting a Gmod Server. Everyday I check if my port is open or closed when i start my gmod and it works fine:

    Have you got any software firewalls, such as Windows Firewall, preventing this?

    Are you using the "canyouseeme.org" service to check your server? That does only check TCP, and GoldSrc is UDP (even for rcon, verified using wireshark).

    However, source1 games uses TCP for rcon, that's why garrysmod works with canyouseeme.org service.

    You can use my page to check if your server is online: https://r4to0.azurewebsites.net/checker/
    That was made specifically for GoldSrc based games. Make sure you have javascript enabled.

    No. I allowed the program through the Windows Firewall and i added the inbound rules in advanced settings.

    Hello

    Using the steam API it is possible to confirm if a server is listed on their master server.
    https://api.steampowered.com/ISteamApps/GetServersAtAddress/v0001?addr=<SERVER IP HERE>&format=xml

    In fact, my port was open but i thought it wasn't working due to the message from 'canyouseeme.org'. As R4to0 said, that page only checks TCP and Goldsource Games uses UDP. So i used the page that he sent to me and that's it.

    In Summary, i was using the wrong webpage to check my port.
