I've been testing a dedi server for some of my friends and I to play on. I create the server, open up the game on the same computer (for testing purposes, because I don't have 2 computers). I have sv_public set to 0, so that the server is LAN. The server shows up in the LAN list, but when I try to join it, it fails, retries 4 times and gives me the "Unable to join game." error. Why is that?

Server port default 2302
You need to change the client port 2303 2304

I already have the server port as 2302 and client port 2303 in the network settings. With different settings the server doesn't show up.

You need to install sapp to the server

sv_name “server name”
sv_motd motd.txt
sv_public true
sv_maxplayers 16
sv_password
sv_timelimit
sv_tk_ban 0
sv_mapcycle_timeout 10
sv_mapcycle_add "map name" “gamemode”
load

Maybe you are not a public IP

Hmmm the commands I use are:
sv_name Halo_DS
sv_public 1
sv_maxplayers 12

sv_mapcycle_timeout 15
sv_mapcycle_add timberland slayer

sv_mapcycle_begin
load

Output of sapp when I load it is:

Loading SAPP...

SAPP Version 10.2 CE by sehВ°°, originally by Termy || halo.isimaginary.com
Successfully loaded sapp.dll!
External IP Received: [my ip here]:2302

I do see it in my lan, so I don't think there's an issue with the ip??

SAPP 10.2 has errors try using a diff version of SAPP: I will look for 10.2.1 and upload here
aslo...make sure you have your ports "allowed" in your router:

OOOOH That actually worked!! What I did was install sapp 10.2.1 and change my port to 2304. I don't think changing it to 2304 worked before. Anyways, thank you to everyone who helped, I can finally play halo with my friends!
