    I am very good with counter-strike source and games and the computer. However I want to make a server and just host it off of my pc. I have tried getting help from a few people that have servers that are constantly 12 or so people in it. They can not figure it out. My server does not show up as internet, but it shows up as lan. Why is this? Can I fix it? Is it something to do with sv_lan? please give me any feedback possible

    sv_lan 0 i think

    try www.playlinc.com it's quite a bit easier, you can host from your computer or from a database in texas

    I just said over here: http://www.halflife2.net/forums/showthread.php?t=127658

    That is for a simple server.
    For your more advanced internet server, port forwarding is fun but if you have a DMZ it becomes much more manageable. You also need to setup a static IP for your server inside your home network. The combination of these two allow
    first- all traffic headed for your global ip to reach your server.
    second- you don't have to worry about your server's local ip address to change forcing you to change the DMZ.
    If you understood anything I just stated there is hope and I will go into how to actually set this stuff up. If not, I'm afraid trying to explain this can be very complicated and dangerous for your computer.
