What Am I Doing Wrong?
I want to play with a friend, but my server is always LAN for me and it is impossible to connect to despite my difficulties in trying to figure out what I did wrong and fixing them.

I port forwarded Port 5 with 27010-27030 in UDP/TDP
The firewall chose an exceptance for UDP 27010-27030 and TDP 27010-27030
I made a static IP
I made the listenserver.cfg in the folder (Although, I might have messed up on that)
I opened the console and placed in sv_lan 0 and heartbeat

I don't remember what else I did, but I spent over an hour doing it. Can someone please give me clear, little instructions that actually work? I looked everywhere, in the community guides, Reddit, and even on the official website, and nothing worked. I just want to play with a friend.

Try open the port 27005 UDP/TDP

Is that the only thing? Just a port?
Did not work.

Try this: Load a map and open the console and put this: "ip (your public ip)" example: ip 190.xxx.xx.xxx And then put "heartbeat". It works for me. Sorry for my poor english.
Doesn't work for me either. Punched UDP holes in my router and firewall - I can see my game on the LAN, but friends can't see it outside. No problem hosting lots of other game servers. Synergy just isn't quite ready for prime time, methinks...
