My System Specs

You certainly don't need to port foward for Steam client. You are probably confusing it by doing port forwarding and it cannot use those ports. I would stop the port forwarding and delete the file mentioned above and then restart steam. The only other thing that might be stopping you is some sort of software firewall by chance?
