Does TFC normally work when you use ASE instead of Steam?

Yep, think i found the problem. HL.EXE needed server rights in the
firwall (to accept incoming connections). This must be a change in how
Steam works - beacuse earlier it did NOT need this (only ASE needed)
I'm not sure I am that happy about this. Why should HL.EXE need server
right (listen to incoming) when I'm not hosting a game. I really don't
like giving programs this access withouth really know why they need.
(X-post to more general group since this is a general Steam thing now)
