How to: Create Dedicated L4D2 Server
Left 4 Dead 2 Dedicated Server Setup Guide [Windows]:
Updated: 11-22-2009

Setup a static IP address
Port Forwarding if behind a router. You need to know your WAN or External IP address
Learn all this @

I.  Installation:
1.  Download hldsupdatetool.exe setup file.
This tool is used to download and update the Source dedicated server.
2. Run hldsupdatetool.exe and install it into a folder. eg. C:\SRCDS
3. Now go to C:\SRCDS and double click hldsupdatetool.exe. [This will update the tool.]
4. To download the files for your L4D2 dedicated server:
Create a new text file in C:\SCRDS\ with this code:

Save as update.bat and exit.  Double click on update.bat to start downloading server files.
[This may take a while and you may need to run it more than once to get all files at 100%]

II.  Configuration:
Create a new text file in C:\SCRDS\left4dead2\left4dead2\cfg and name it server.cfg.
Input your own info for hostname, rcon password, and contact.

Example server.cfg:

III.  Starting Server:
You can start your L4D2 server from a command line, a batch file, or by making a shortcut to srcds.exe.

To Create a Shortcut to srcds.exe:
1- Go to your C:\SRCDS\left4dead2 directory. Right click on srcds.exe and select 'Create Shortcut'.
2- Right click on the newly created shortcut and select 'properties'. Click the 'shortcut' tab and in the Target line you will see the following: "C:\srcds\left4dead2\srcds.exe"
3- Now we need to add the following parameters to this line to get the server started properly:

Fill in YOUR.WAN.IP.ADDY with your external IP address and YOUR.LAN.IP.ADDY with your internal 'static' IP address if you are behind a router.  You could change +map to whatever you prefer.

Don't forget to put a space between srcds.exe and -console.
Click OK when finished.  Double Click Shortcut to start server.

To create a Startup batch file with extra script to restart server if it crashes:
1- Go to your C:\SRCDS directory and create a new text file named L4D2dServer.bat.
2- Add the following line of code to the batch file:
Fill in YOUR.WAN.IP.ADDY with your external IP address and YOUR.LAN.IP.ADDY with your internal 'static' IP address if you are behind a router. You could change +map to whichever map you prefer.
Save .bat when finished. Double Click L4DServer.bat to start server with crash protection. Smiley

IV.  Cracking Server:
To avoid using the matchmaking system and use direct connections instead,
Make sure you have the the following set in your server.cfg:

Use the Revolution Emulator:
1. Download L4D2_RevLoader from this thread.
2. Install to C:\SRCDS\left 4 dead 2\
you only need these files: rev.ini, steam.dll, and steamclient.dll.
3. Open "rev.ini" and edit so it only contains the following:

V.  Updating Server:
To update server, just run the update.bat that you created in the first part of this guide.

NOTE: In order for the rev-emu to work properly, you need to have MS visual C++ and .Net Framework:
Download and install Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package: 32-bit or 64-bit
Download and install Microsoft's .net Framework 3.5
