Can't connect

Post by Flyswat » Sat Oct 22, 2016 9:41 am

I am frm Israel and bough Frankfurt server.

When I try to join it says : You cannot connect to this CS:GO server because it is restricted to LAN connections only.

Is there any way probably I bought a privaet server instead of Public .. Dammit, we want to play PCWs

Can I switch somehow?

The mentioned error is most likely due to the server not having a Steam game login token assigned to the server. You can generate a token for the server via the following page:

You can then apply the token to the server by adding/editing the following setting to the server.cfg file:

sv_setsteamaccount "TokenGoesHere"

After making this change you should be able to properly connection to the server.
