  • It is very important to turn off your firewall or make an exception to the game because it may not allow your friends to connect with you. Tell your friends about this too.
  • Now tell your friends to install hamachi on their computers and join your Network you just made. Give your Network Id and password to your friends so that they will join your Network. When they are joined Green light will be visible near their computer names.
  • Now Tell them to copy your ipv4 address from hamachi by right click on your name and copy or you can simply give your ip address by chat. When your friends got your  ip address then he should open cs then press ~ key(Below ESC key) then type connect then press enter, he will be connected to your server or he may add ip address to favorites or he may see your server in LAN. Enjoy....
