Google what is my ip and the IP that's given you type in console connect BLAHIPHERE and then a : with your server port
Just tried this...same thing, says connecting... and just spins. I can't even pull "Server Info" when I highlight my server in the list. But I can with any other server.
I'm not to keen on the ip running the server tryin to connect thing. Everything I google about it just gives me instructions on how to set up a dedi properly and all. Nothing bout joining from the same ip as the server.
It looks like I might have to dust off my old pc and install the server onto it, I think..
nah, i got it now. I d/l'd the dedi thingy from steam and the ports weren't the same. IW5M ports are different and I didn't remember to switch them.
Glad I learned the IP thing tho. Thanks guys, SOLVED.
