So i hosted a server to test my map. A few minutes later 2 players join. 1 leaves and 1 enjoys the map. WTF? He also cooped with me. I didn't even port forward. Is this even normal?

Firstly, you made a bad title. Surely, it caught my attention but some people won't bother to look at the thread if you don't explain the problem in short words, do it for them (and me)
Secondly, yes it is normal. Some people don't need to port forward to have their servers working properly, it all depends on your firewalls, routers and similar stuff. Guess you're "lucky".

I don't have firewall. But now when i had 1 window running my server and the other one showing the lobby my server only showed on LAN. And when i typed on the filter my server name no server have that. Not even the map.

EDIT: This should mean i'm not lucky.

Also click the spoiler for the log.

I'll agree with user 0TT0.

And the log just proves what you said.

If your server isn't enabled as "LAN" only, it'll be visible to the others. You don't need to port forward anything and you definitely can't "enable" it. Just be happy that players can join the server. If you don't want it you can use
cs2d cmd sv_lan command. It shows it in LAN because it's obviously on local are network (since it's hosted with your internet )

EDIT @user Suprise: He didn't. Notice how he wrote "." at the begining of command. He writes so the host would write it. If he's hosting as server, he'd get it anyway
