Using the Steam gui, with the console switch the server runs fine and it can be seen in the server browser.

The problem is when a client connects it is rejected saying it can not validate the steamID

Any ideas?

Also on a side note how do i create a custom config file?

Cheers

Is sv_lan set to 1? I assume that all people playing are on the lan.
If it is set to 1 it really shouldn't be trying to validate anyone. However if more than 5 people try to connect with the same cd key it will fail.

If there anyway i can set that in a config file so its done automatically since the server is only ever a lan server

Just add the "sv_lan 1" command in the server.cfg file (or listenserver.cfg if its not dedicated) and away you go.
