Without more information I can only offer you a few possible ideas.
Be sure you're running a dedicated server, and not a listen server.
Check your software firewall settings on your computer.
Be sure your router is configured to forward correctly.
Also be sure you have the server set for internet play and not LAN.

Most of these types of problems can normally be solved by doing something very simple.  If you give me some more information on what exactly you're doing, that will help out.  ;)

yes it is dedicated server set for intternet.but everyone says that it is not responding. but you do see it on the ingame server list. i think it might be what you sayed abou the fire wall settings. do you know how i would do that?

If you aren't using any software that acts as a firewall, then windows (I assume your using windows) may be doing it for you using the security center.  Go to your control pannel and look for the security center or windows firewall.  Once you find the firewall, click on the exceptions tab and click either add port or program.  If you click add port, set the port as 27015 and give it any name you choose.  Restart the server, all that good stuff.

If that doesn't do it, it's probably your router.  Follow the steps for accessing your router in my first post, and your going to have to manually add the port 27015, and forward to your PC (192.168.1.70).  Due to specific router interfaces, I can't really help you with this part too much.  :|

Again, if your using any different software, you're going to do pretty much the same thing.
