Just recently bought a server for pc, let it set up and restart for over an hour. i cannot find the server by searching for the name what so ever, but i can connect to the server if i click on "connect to server" from my dashboard... what am i doing wrong?

I have tried those. i can log into my serve via direct connect or by typing in the ip address but it doesnt show up on the server list what so ever. and while i dont mind using the direct connect or ip address i have friends and tribe mates who would like to join me on the server as well
