I have successfully setup a dedicated L4D2 server on my Linux box. I can manually connect to it with
connect <myip>, so I believe I have all the basics setup correctly.
I'm trying to get the server to show up on the "Steam Group Servers" list so that its relatively easy to find and configure through the UI. However, its not showing up there. There are some servers in there from other Steam Groups I'm in, but not this server. (As far as I can tell, the server isn't showing up anywhere in the UI...) (A Steam Group seems like a nice way to make the server "private" without requiring a password.)
Here's my primitive
server.cfg. Its got the right "sv_steamgroup" (I've double-checked, but have zeroed it out here.)
hostname "My Home L4D2 Server" rcon_password "nothisisnotmypassword" sv_contact "firstname.lastname@example.org" sv_cheats 0 sv_clearhinthistory 0 //Clear Server Side Hint History sv_consistency 1 //Enforce file consistency sv_pausable 0 //Server not pausable sv_allow_lobby_connect_only 1 sv_voiceenable 1 sv_alltalk 0 sv_region 1 sv_steamgroup 000000 // Has valid number in real config file ... sv_steamgroup_exclusive 1 // sv_steamgroup 0 // sv_password "thisisnotmypassword" // sv_search_key "myuniquesearchkeyhasbeenreplaced" sv_lan 0 sv_logsdir "logs" //sv_pure 2
I've tried starting the server with and without
steampass. And, I've tried waiting a couple hours for the server to show up in the list. Any suggestions?
