Counter Strike internet play


I have installed CS on my computer and have been able to run it with absolutely no problems using winex(cvs) but I have not been able to play internet games. At first I thought it was a problem with the gamespy master servers, so I tried using the console to directly connect to a server but it does not work, it just keeps retrying.
After that I downloaded XQF but when I run it and go to View > Update from Master Server the progress bar goes for a bit then it just turns into a yellow line. I checked and I have the ip's of the new servers in both XQF and CS.
Does anyone have experience with this issue?

I am running:
qstat 2.5c
xqf 0.9.11-1
wineX 3 CVS
RH 8.0

I used the following tutorial to get me this far:

Thanks

I'm not excactly sure because I am still a newbie but I think you are just missing that library, so you should search for it and download it and install it.

I think I've found the answer in the transgaming forums, it is as follows:



"I've tried to fix this problem on my own, by reading the faq's, and howto's. When I use the command

winex hl.exe -console -toconsole -game cstrike +connect 216.52.5.38:27015

counter-strike loads correctly, but I get these messages:

NET Ports: server 27015, client 27005

WARNING: IPX_Socket: port: 27015 bind: WSAEINVAL
WARNING: IPX_Socket: port: 27005 bind: WSAEINVAL
WARNING: IPX_Socket: port: -1 bind: WSAEINVAL
Server IP address 127.0.0.1:27015

Retrying 216.52.5.38:27015...
Retrying 216.52.5.38:27015...
Connection failed after 4 retries.

I know using the -noipx will get rid of those errors in command line, but why can't I connect to any servers?

I'm positive that this is a firewall issue, because when I disable the firewall in Redhat 8 everything works fine.

Can somebody tell me what ports are required to be open, so that I can use counter-strike without having my system completely vulnerable? I have been trying to use Red Hat's Security Level tool, redhat-config-securitylevel. It's not really the best though.

Nevermind, I found the ports. They are as follows:

TCP ports 6000 to 6003, 7001 and 7002, and UDP ports 27005, 27010, 27015 and 27016.

Enjoy."

So if anyone else is having the same problem this could be it. I have yet to test it though.
