What is a Steam Auth Token? Print

  • 0

Valve now requires certain game servers to register a server with a specific Steam account. They accomplish this with a feature called Game Server Login Token or GSLT. This token will uniquely register your server with your Steam account.

Creating a GSLT

  1. First, you simply need to head over to the following link and login into your steam account: https://steamcommunity.com/dev/managegameservers
  2. Next, you'll need to identify the unique Steam App ID relevant to your server. For AleForge customers, you can find this ID on the startup tab in the panel. You can also reference the table below.
  3. Once you have generated the token you only need to paste its value into the form on the Steam Account Token on the Startup page in the panel.
Game App ID
Counter Strike: Source 240
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive 730
Garry's Mod 4000
Team Fortress 2 440
Left 4 Dead 2 550
Don't Starve Together 322330

Left 4 Dead & Counter Strike (original release) do not require a GSLT
