I'm looking for a way to play CS 1.6 in LAN with computers that don't have permission to connect into Steam. It's really important that this version is a original/legal one.

Is there a solution for this? Any ideas?

  • Proxy restriction. – adolfosrs Oct 1 '14 at 19:29
  • Is this in a school? – KOVIKO Oct 1 '14 at 19:30
  • We'll help you get the game working, but bypassing proxies and other security measures tend to be things we don't help with, I believe. – Frank Oct 1 '14 at 19:30
  • I'm not interested in any kind of bypassing any security/legal restriction..... I just want a original copy running in my machine. – adolfosrs Oct 1 '14 at 19:33

This is not possible. Counter-Strike 1.6 was released as an update through Steam. It was never released outside of Steam. Previous versions have seen retail releases, but 1.6 did not.

The Steam client was first made available for public beta testing in January 2003 during the beta period for Counter-Strike 1.6, for which it was mandatory to install and use. Source

    If you can find an older version of the game and are able to get it to work on the machine, it should work on the LAN unless they have the ports blocked. – slow_excellence Oct 1 '14 at 21:16
