ok i consider myself pretty arma/dayz savy but for the life of me i cant get ANY server working on the newest steam beta! heres what ive tried so far

deleted arma 2 and all mods
installed arma 2 from steam
went to properties -> betas -> beta-
verified local cache

intalled epoch 1.0.5.1 STOCK

started arma2 thru steam (showed correct patch version)
went to expansions tab and enabled epoch 1.0.5.1 (showed correct patch version)
joined a server running latest steam patch (works fine)

used steamCMD to update server
(following instructions from here)
(also tried this aswell)

but when ever i start a server locally (aram 2 or epoch) i get stuck at waiting for host what am i doing wrong?

my server and game are in the same folder and i have arma 2 CO (copied arma2 to OA folder to make CO)

this has alwasy worked until friggin steam got involed !

please help as i cant update my reapack untill i can start the a server running the new beta

Cant you not have 2 pcs on one server at a time, maybe I'm reading it wrong but I'm pretty sure the host account can't be tied the the players account.
