Are you trying to run the dedicated server on the same machine as your trying to play the game on? If so that won't work (from what I know).

I does, you just need to make sure that you use the local IP address for the machine if it is attached on a LAN. I do this all the time, and I've had no problems.

Try using the "connect" command. Enable the developer's console via keyboard options, advanced. Then hit the "~" key (to the left of the 1 key) type "connect" without quotes and the "x"s are the ip to your server.

The easiest way to do this is, once you start L4D, open the console and type sv_cheats 1. This will NOT count against any achivements! Type into the console ms_force_dedicated_server "Server IP:Port". Then, YOU create the lobby.
