"Steam decided that you are not authorized to connect to this server"

Whenever I try to connect to the TOGA server on Red Orchestra 2 I get the message:
"Steam decided that you are not authorized to connect to this server"

I played on this server many times before. I just had some trouble with my broadband and started Steam in offline mode but connected to the internet then and started the game on the server forgetting that I was in offline mode.
I connected to the server fine but lost connection shortly after. Now every time I try to connect I get this error message. All other servers are fine...

Any ideas?
Thanks for any help

Anyone? anything? This is really annoying as this is the only decent european 64 player server.
Do I tell Steam, Tripwire? Please help?!

Your VAC-status is intact? Validated game files? All the usual. Otherwise it sounds like some sort of custom server message impersonating Steam. Wonder how Steam/Valve likes that...

Yes I did all of that and VAC is in good standing. Still the same message appears. The admin of the server checked already but there seems to be no ban against me which only leaves Steam to cause the problem.

You need to open a ticket on the steam support they can tell what message means

Oh and if you havent already done it shut down and restart steam

Hi

Can you run and join your own server? or any other server for that matter?

edit. try making sure you have the correct ports open on your router to play online


If you cannot join any server try deleting everything in your steam folder except SteamApps and steam.exe and let steam update itself.

Hope it helps

Yes did all of that as well and reinstalled steam but the message remains the same
I can join any server but this one but sadly it is my favourite one.

...thanks for the help though

If you can join * any * server but the single one..... then it stands to reason, THAT server has you locked out.
That is what I thought but the admin says no and they know me....just saw the admin's response and no I am 100% not server side banned which leaves Steam to cause the problem.

The server is running a different version of the game you are most likely, is your game up to date?
yes as it connects to every server but this one
the admins will restart the server so maybe then it will work again. I wrote to Steam and Yoshiro though I know they have more important things to do...

Just wanted to post the solution to the problem.
After a server restart everything is fine.

@Yoshiro please feel free to disregard my PM
