Make sure you're not making a LAN-only server. Type sv_lan 0 in your console and restart. I think there's a checkbox for that on the options in the GUI, but I'm not sure.

If that doesn't do it, are you behind a router or firewall? Check to make sure your ports aren't blocked. This'll help.

There's a few other things, but 99% of the time it's one (or both =E) of those two.

What do you mean "get the ports"?

If you're behind a router and have no idea what you're doing, check out the website they mention in the answer. If you're behind a firewall, you'll have to head to their website. They'll tell you how to change your settings so the ports you need open aren't being blocked.

If you're connected directly to the Internet without any firewall (as much as I'd recommend against such), then you don't have to worry about that.
