Make sure that you arent crating the server on a LAN and make sure you are using steam, and LEGAL copies of HL I dont know if that would matter but just make sure its not being created on a LAN.

If you are behind a firewall or router you may have to open your ports.

27015 is what Half-Life uses.

Please do not double post.

As for your problem, check to make sure sv_lan is set to 0, as well make sure your ports are enabled correctly,
