(Solved) Engine error: Couldn't allocate any server IP port, tried 1 addresses
I recently bought Left4Dead but I could not run it. Soon after the initial movie the game closes and a dialog pops up saying:

Engine error: Couldn't allocate any server IP port, tried 1 addresses

Make sure you dont have any firewall applications limiting L4D's internet connections

The problem isn't caused by the firewall. I gave permission to the game. And even if the firewall is disabled the problem persists.

Solved. Either in L4D or L4D2 execute the game (from the game directory) as Administrator. It's necessary just one time.
