I'm playing Garrys Mod, Multiplayer on LAN and for whatever reason, tools aren't working. I can't find any setting to turn them on, either. And, when I say "not working," I mean that their groups are showing up in the spawn menu, but there is nothing to select.

Do the default "tools" and weapons show up? If they do can you use them properly? – tgrosinger Mar 22 '11 at 2:53
@ursa_arcadius: The default weapons work. But there are no tools to select/use. – Mark Szymanski Mar 22 '11 at 3:00
Can you use the physics gun as one of the default weapons? Also, are there any settings that would disable using any tools in multiplayer? I could see there being an option if you wanted to keep people from griefing on your server (although doing so would make little sense in LAN). – Sadly Not Mar 22 '11 at 3:38
@SadlyNot: Yes, the physics gun is one of the default weapons and I can use it. I don't know of any setting to turn off tools. – Mark Szymanski Mar 22 '11 at 12:58
I would guess that the server has certain tools disabled. – Jason_c_o Oct 26 '11 at 19:27
