Can't connect to steam servers
Anyone have this problem? I'm trying to get into steam servers with the application on my computer and all I get is can not connect to servers -_- Is there any way to fix this? I contacted steam support and I know it takes ages but if anyone knows how to fix this problem, let me know, also, I'm connected to the internet as I got that server issue

hlds updatetool seems to be fundamentally broken.
there are hardcoded IPs to servers that are not reachable anymore.

What (temporalily) solved this problem was some IPTABLES hacking:
add to NAT table:
-A PREROUTING -d 207.173.177.11/32 ! -i eth1 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 27030 -m comment --comment "HLDS hardcoded IP hack" -j DNAT --to-destination 208.64.200.189:27038
-A PREROUTING -d 207.173.177.12/32 ! -i eth1 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 27030 -m comment --comment "HLDS hardcoded IP hack" -j DNAT --to-destination 208.64.200.189:27038
-A PREROUTING -d 69.28.151.178/32 ! -i eth1 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 27038 -m comment --comment "HLDS hardcoded IP hack" -j DNAT --to-destination 208.64.200.189:27038
-A PREROUTING -d 69.28.153.82/32 ! -i eth1 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 27038 -m comment --comment "HLDS hardcoded IP hack" -j DNAT --to-destination 208.64.200.189:27038
-A PREROUTING -d 68.142.88.34/32 ! -i eth1 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 27038 -m comment --comment "HLDS hardcoded IP hack" -j DNAT --to-destination 208.64.200.189:27038
-A PREROUTING -d 68.142.72.250/32 ! -i eth1 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 27038 -m comment --comment "HLDS hardcoded IP hack" -j DNAT --to-destination 208.64.200.189:27038


the comment and the "! -i eth1" parts may be omitted (know what you are doing)
Now i can connect, but get the message: "ProtocolError - Bad message LengthPrefix" which seems to be a showstopper here
