Help port forwarding on a Minecraft server (Netgear WNR2000v3)
« on: September 27, 2011, 06:01:15 PM »
I know I have two routers, and I followed all the instructions in the guide. My router IP matches that of my modem, but it still won't let me start of my Minecraft server. I don't know if this is the problem, but it tries to run the server off of the 10.0.0.1 IP instead of the new one. My modem is extremely old, and I'm really not sure if I changed the settings properly. I'm assuming that the problem is with my new router, as I did not have this problem with my old Linksys. Attached are images from the modem settings, not the router's.

First what is the IP of your computer?
Open a command window and put in ipconfig. Tell me what it says for the IP address.

I also don't see any port forwarding rule setup for the game in the router. What model router/modem do you have?
You said you have 2 routers yet I only see the screen shots for 1 of them, what router is the 2nd one?

That was the one that the IP inside my first router led me to. My first router is a Netgear WNR2000v3, but the one in the pictures is an old Bellsouth-issued Westell DSL modem. The IP of my router changed to that of my modem, but the server still doesn't work. I used the Simple Port Checker, but it says that the port is open. Attached are screenshots of the router settings.

I have a static IP set up. It says that it is 10.0.0.150.

Odd, your netgear shows your internet IP. Yet your DNS is pointing to the modem.

Do this, in the netgear leave it set to auto for the IP. But for DNS put it to static, and lets put in googles dns.
8.8.8.8
8.8.4.4

Also post a screen shot of the results from my port tester :wink:

Here's the screenshot of the port tester. IP Passthrough was enabled on my modem. Should I turn that off?

The server still didn't let people on. What IP address am I supposed to use for the port forwarding thing? Is it the one that starts with 10 or some other one?

When you connect to your own server you will you use your local IP. When someone from outside your home trys to connect you have them use your internet IP :wink:

Thank you so much. The problem ended up being my Norton firewall, which I had forgotten to add an exception for Minecraft to.
