Cannot connect to my L4D2 server

Post by mcl » Mon Feb 16, 2015 8:21 am

Hello.

I followed some guides to setup my l4d2 server using steamcmd program.
The operating system I used is CentOS 7.

My server apparently runs, but I cannot connect to it at all.
I tried connecting to it from ingame console, but it times out after repeatedly trying to connect "Connection failed after 10 retries."

What I noticed when starting the server was seeing:

Code: Select all

[S_API FAIL] SteamAPI_Init() failed; SteamAPI_IsSteamRunning() failed.
[S_API FAIL] SteamAPI_Init() failed; unable to locate a running instance of Steam, or a local steamclient.dll.
Can anybody please help me with what is wrong?

I fixed the problem.

Centos 7 had firewall activated by default and required game ports to be opened.
