    I created the following rule to allow Steam/Counterstrike access to 17 ports.


    Inbound & Outbound:UPD:All:All:All:in range of 27000:27017.


    However, when I click to load steam, I immediately get a stop and the log shows that rule "UDP: Any other UDP packet" was applied...

    Also....Port dest is 27013, SRC 1145.


    Any ideas on what's going on here?

    Thanks.

    Yes....

    I imported these 3 rules for CS...1 of which was exactly like the one I created...the other two, one was for port 1200 and the other for a range I didn't know about...

    Now, I don't get the error that I get when I click Steam to start the app.

    However, when I scan for servers....I got over 400 logged errors....most of which were for ports that the rules should have let get through.

    I still was able to get plenty of servers to play on and I didn't have a problem playing...but everytime I search for servers...I still get hunderds of logged errors...probably 90% of which are in the range and SHOULD NOT BE BLOCKED.

    Thanks for the link though...

    Still need help with original question.

    Nevermind....I think I figured this out....most of the blocks are from UDP's greated than the range of Steam's rule....so the rules seem to be ok...I wonder why my rule didn't work though...

    :(

    So, I just modified the rule from range 27000-27015 ti 27017 and that helped greatly...

    sorry for being such a noob.


    FYI

    For the most part...yes.

    I still get frequent stops logged when I search for CS Servers...but they are all outside the UDP Range of those rules....

    Any ideas why CS Servers would set-up outside the "designated" range of ports?

    Hi,

    to configure his server outside of the common ranges is very common, either to escape to ISP filtering or to script kiddies which scan for common ports.
    I think you can extend your rule to these ports.
