You have to open the server ports, otherwise no one can see or connect to the server.

Where can see my server port? For i open it…


In your server.cfg.
If you haven’t changed the port it’s probably 30120.

You can read more about it here:

I already read that doc but still didn’t work.
My port i didn’t change Capture

I’ve got server.cfg from here :

Have you configured port-forwarding for 30120 on your router and added an exception to your firewall?

Already configured… Capture

Exception firewall to program or only port??

Mainly just your port, usually Windows’ own firewall software manages this quite well but I usually have to configure my third-party firewall

still didn’t on the list

What response do you get if you type ‘hearbeat’ into your server’s console?

Responses if i type ‘heartbeat’ like this

im in in the same problem (firewall and modem port opened) but nobody cant see me

So you opened, on your router dashboard port 30120, 2 times output, 2 times input. You have to do it for TCP and UDP. Input and output. In total: 4 times on your router. Than you to the same, with TCP and UDP and input and output on your firewall. Also 4 times. When it than not works, im sorry.
