Cant add my L4D2 server

Hi I cant add my L4D2 server to gametracker

If I type connect mystaticIP:27015 into the L4D2 console it works and I can connect to the game but I cant add it to gametracker are there any reasons why this would be the case?

This is to be a private server for me and a small gaming community that I am starting so it is password protected it would be nice if we could track the stats however. Could this be the issue?

Thanks in advance,

If you're hosting it locally and connecting to it locally, it would make sense that you'd be able to connect to it without much issue.

In terms of connecting to it via the internet, you need to make sure to properly configure your server to allow traffic on that port. Please check your firewall and ensure 27015 is open.
I am retired from GameTracker after 11 years and will not be responsive for support requests.

Hi sorry to be more specific. I put my externalstaticIP:27015 and I can connect fine but gametracker cannot see the game.

I have tried everything I can think of I might just have to resort to setting up a webserver for it and mysql and trying to link it all together myself.

Ok I have figured it out there is something about the password config that it doesnt like.

I will work on this and should be able to sort it.

Thanks for the input

Yea its not gonna work the way I want it to I have setup a webserver and will just do my own stats.

The sv_password is broken I have been advised and does not work properly and it will take the developers to fix it and it has been broken a long while. I will just take ownership of the server in a couple weeks and then delete it as I have locked it back up on the VPN.

Its a shame as this looked perfect for tracking all the stats etc oh well maybe if I do another game that you support.
