I'm trying to help a friend of mine set up an Ubuntu Linux SRCDS server for DoD:S.
Everything runs fine, we can join the server and everything, but RCON cannot connect!
Every time we try, whether it be from within the game using console or using a program like HLSW, we get the "Unable to connect to remote server (xx.xx.xx.xx:27015)" error.
We've opened the ports (27015 TCP/UDP and 27020 UDP) both using iptables and through his router, but it was no help.
This is the command line he is trying to use:
./srcds_run -console -game dod +map dod_donner -maxplayers 16 -autoupdate
I found somewhere online that it might because he didn't define the IP/Port on the command line, so I told him to try that.
He tried every combination of +/-ip and +/- port, but nothing helped.
Whenever there was a +ip or -ip on the command line, he got this error:
"Cannot assign requested address. Couldn't allocate any server IP port"
Anyone have any ideas?
