This is one way to make a dedicated server for Garry's Mod via port forwarding instead of using a hamachi client. The benefit to this is that anyone can go on your server, as long as you allow it. I will also teach you how to set permissions as well so you can lock people out too.

When clicking on links please right-click and select open in new tab, it makes things a lot easier.

Step 1: Download and Install the Half-Life Dedicated Source Update Tool.

Download the Half-Life Dedicated Source Update Tool here then run the program.

When installing change the destination folder to "C:\srcds" by clicking the "browse" button and then at the top of the window that says "Select Destination Directory" change whatever is in the top bar you can edit to "C:\srcds (If the file does not exist the installer will make the folder for you).

<p>Your step 2 confused me a lot. I was unsure if you meant to open up a normal command prompt, or the hldsupdatetool and paste it there.<br><br>This instructable seems dead so I don't expect a reply before I figure it out myself.</p>
<p>Thank You so much it helped me.</p>

<p>theres no orange box folder for me just read me and other stuff</p>
the orangebox folder is empty :(
Every time I enter my default gateway it says&quot;Unable to connect to network&quot; or something like that. PLEASE HELP!!!
Can you go anywhere else on the internet? That sounds like a problem with your router.
It says &quot;Windows cannot find 'srcds.exe'
Then the Updater Tool did not install properly, try uninstalling then re-installing.
