Having trouble here, when I create netgame server in Half Life I was told in the console too type this command in Sv_Lan 0 too enable internet play, (this should see my game on Steam Half Life but it doesnt) I then get a message in the console saying "Could not Establish Connection too steam servers" can some advise??

It sounds like your firewall is blocking the port needed to connect. Have a look on the Half Life site to see which port is needed then unblock it in your firewall settings.

Have you tried typing 1 instead of zero? Are you trying to create a server for internet play or LAN play? Have you tried updating Steam?

I have no problem creating a server for internet or LAN with my install.

Help!!

You will need to open (incomming and outgoing)ports

UDP ports 1200 and range 27000-27015
TCP port range 27030-27039

in zone alarm. You should find it under the Firewall ==> Internet zone security ==> custom section
