    Hello, i was just wondering why my friend's can't see my in game server on Counter-Strike, is there a way to enable so my friends can join my counter-strike server?

    Even if they type the command 'connect myip' they still can't join?

    I'm Using Eset Smart Security 5

    Try switching firewall to learning mode for a while. In automatic mode with exceptions you can enable logging of blocked connections in the IDS setup so that you'll see the reason for blocking particular connection attempts in your firewall log.

    Do you mean that disabling ESS firewall on your computer (assumingly running the server) does not make any difference and only users with ESS installed have problems connecting to it?

    As I suggested before, switch your ESS firewall to learning mode for a while so that the necessary rules are created automatically. If necessary, you can adjust the rules later.
