Sometimes, Steam blocks IP addresses for no apparent reason. Fear not, there is a way to sidestep this particular issue. All you have to do is add the server’s IP address to your favorites. Firstly, go to the Steam client and open the View tab. 

Then, go into Game Servers. Toward the top of the Game Servers popup, you’ll see things like Internet, Favorites, History, LAN, and Friends. Click Favorites and then press the plus button down the bottom.

The next step is to add the IP address to the bar.
