Angry CounterStrike Dedicated server problem LINUX

Hello I just installed Mandrake 10.1 and CounterStrike Source Dedicated server.
My problem is when I run srcdsl_run it wont let me set my true internet ip. So all I see in the client software is the LAN game, server browser wont pull up my game on my internet ip. It error occures,

Server logging data to file logs/L0418053.log
L 04/18/2005 - 21:15:32: Log file started (file "logs/L0418053.log") (game "/home/steam/cstrike") (version "2350")
WARNING: NNET_OpenSocket: bind: Cannot assign requested address
Couldn't allocate dedicated server UDP port
Add "-debug" to the ./srcds_run command line to generate a debug.log to help with solving this problem
Mon Apr 18 21:15:32 EST 2005: Server restart in 10 seconds
Mon Apr 18 21:15:37 EST 2005: Server Quit

I have no idea how to fix this bind error, I've been searching for a answer for hours now, I cant seem to find much info. I'm running the game as root and ls -l shows root owns all the files.

Thanks in advance,
Sean T. Pinkerton (MajSlayer)

i have no clue really.. but taking a wild guess from the error message i would think its a problem with the port that the server is on and/or the port that client's connect through on? there is a udp port that is used.. and maybe it isnt opened or being forwarded?

im sure someone else can give you a more accurate answer.

I had this problem also. For some reason source can't just figure out your IP address.

Just add "+ip <yourip> to your game startup command. For example:

./srcds_run -game cstrike +ip <your server's IP address> +maxplayers 10 +map de_dust

Also, don't forget to edit your firewall rules to allow 27015:udp traffic.

How is the new version of CS? I haven't played since 1.5. I used to run my own Linux CS server and had quite a lot of fun running it. I learned quite a bit about firewalling, network security, QOS, and remote administration from my experience.

I love CS Source. I never played the older versions, so I can't compare. I'm told that most of the maps are the same, just with updated graphics.

As far as server administration goes, I wish things were not as archaic as they always are for setting up gaming servers.
