Cant connect to my vanilla server via HLSW or game client ?
I have no iptables I have no firewall rules , server is out the box default not even a server.cfg
I updated ubuntu and installed 32 bit libbs
Normally server would work fine at this stage I never have to forward ports or anything
any ideas ?

It gets the lobby reservation then stops and game client returns to main screen

Code: Select all

Connecting to public(31.186.250.200:27021) 
Sending UDP connect to public IP 31.186.250.200:27021
Server using 'public' lobbies, requiring pw no, lobby id 0
