Not sure if this is the right forum for this but....

I've been craving some old-school counter-strike 1.6 + UWC3 mod action lately. For those unfamiliar with UWC3 you can see all the details here: http://uwc3.com/

Basically, you have warcraft 3 skills and abilities but there's no races, instead your skills are exactly what you want them to be based on your play style.

Anyway, I decided to set up a dedicated server for 1.6 + UWC3 mod, and got it up and running ... sort of. The server works 100% for me as I'm on the same LAN, but it's totally unreachable to external clients. *NO THE SERVER IS NOT RUNNING IN "LAN" MODE, sv_lan IS 0*

(Sorry I had to make that clear before I got 900 replies of "you forgot to set it to internet mode")

The server IP is 173.8.209.181:27015. When it's fully up and running, I invite anyone who is interested to join and play!

Also, if anyone is interested in helping me get this issue sorted out, here is a detailed description of what i've done and my configuration:

I have a gateway/firewall running pfSense, LAN address 192.168.0.1, sitting in front of the dedicated server, LAN address 192.168.0.2. Ports 6003, 7001-7002, and 27000-27050 UDP/TCP are all forwarded to the server.

I've tried forcing HLDS to listen on all IP's by passing it "+ip 0.0.0.0" when launching it, which doesn't solve the problem. I've tried running it on known-working ports, e.g. temporarily killing the webserver running on port 80 and then running the server on port 80, with port 80 open to both TCP and UDP.

Some suggestions i've seen on google are to force the external IP with the "+ip" command line switch, which i've tried but fails (as expected) because you cannot bind a socket to a "bogus" IP address, e.g. the server on LAN has no knowledge of 173.8.209.181.

Help is appreciated! Look forward to seeing people on the server when it goes live.
