Counter Strike is one of top multi-player games and has lots of online tournaments and sometimes clan members want to practice online which needs server.
- For making a server first you need to have a Port-forward to allow players outside Local Network (LAN).For Port-Forwarding configuration you have to find your modem or router model and search for settings on http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm and then test port from http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/.Make sure your Windows Firewall is closed.
- Download HLDS for your Counter Strike Version and set configuration, players, port etc.
- Find your Internet IP from http://whatismyip.com and share it to your friend or player, port like ” 22.214.171.124:27015″.
I posted a few basic steps which will help to make servers easy and for full information of server tutorial you can find on steam website.
