Cannot setup port forwarding for Minecraft Server
« on: June 01, 2012, 04:06:47 PM »
I have used the Simple Port Forwarding software, and the rule was added. The test within the program says success, but trying to connect from an outside network still doesn't work. I have a Zhome 6218-I2-xxx router. Windows firewall is off right now, turning it on and adding rules doesn't work either. What do I do?

If the port tester says it is open then port forwarding is working.

When you try to connect from an outside network are you using the local IP or internet IP?

Never mind. The port was working after all. Can you close this?
