How can I connect directly to my server?

For Counter Strike 2 Customers, this process is required to connect until developers add more community based server support/browsing in-game!

Steam Server Browser Favorites

You can easily connect to your server directly by favoriting it in your Steam Server Browser.

First, open Steam and go to View > Servers

Then click Add Server

Obtain your server's IP:Port from the Control Panel and enter it into the next page, then click Add Server.

* NOTE: If QUERY Info is an option, you may need to add it as a favorite via the QUERY port instead of the main game port. Rust, ARK, V Rising, and Valheim are some games that require you to connect using the query port instead.

Done! Now double click on your server in the Steam Server Browser and it should launch!

Double click to launch.

** Alternatively, you can click the 'Join' button in your control panel which will also connect directly to your server. However, if you never add it to your favorites, you would have to do that every time.
