Yes it would be the modem Ip address. Does it match the IP on the webpage?

We are trying to find the IP address that is seen from the Internet side. This would be something different from what you use to log into the device. If you just want to take a screen shot but aren't comfortable posting it, then you can take the screen shot and send it to Shane and I via a PM and we can check the info against your IP information associated with your posts.

After less than a half hour of looking Shane was able to find that I didn't have one of the settings correct on the port forwarding options in my router I was supposed to leave the remote port and ip info blank in the port forwarding settings. after changing the settings and retesting the ports everything worked! :smiley:

Glad I was able to get your working :cheesy:

Sorry I didn't notice that setting was wrong from the screen shot.

So for other users with this router remember when adding a port forwarding rule to leave the remote/external port and IP info blank in the rule.

Since your all fixed I will lock this thread :wink:

And as always...
If your happy with my work. Then all I ask in return is you simply let others know about my site and programs. I help with anything computer or network related :-)
Also always feel free to make a post in the feedback forum.
And a facebook like at the top of the page of my site is nice as well. ;)
