How can I play Counter Strike with my friends over the internet?
These are the steps required to host your own server:
- Go to your Counter-strike’s file location.
- Double click on hlds (Half life dedicated Server).
- Set the game to Counter Strike, set the map, change the network to Internet.
- Hit Start Server
- Give them your IP address and ask them to type this command in their console “connect IP ADDRESS” without the quotes.
- Voila! You have hosted your very first CS 1.6 server.
