3801HGV portforward problem
« on: April 30, 2013, 05:54:54 PM »
Hey,

I am trying to portforward on 2WIRE 3801HGV with AT&T UVERSE. I am trying to open port 201 on 2 different computers. But canyouseeme.org says my connection is refused.
I saw Shane help someone with the same modem and problem as I have. However, Shane doesn't put in the thread how to fix the issue:

You can only forward a port to 1 device at a time,

And as for online port testers
Quote
Most online port testers fail no matter what if nothing accepts their connection attempt. This port tester program will open the port on the system it is running on and listen for a connection from this site. So when the port tester program says the ports are open you can count that they are :-)

So on the computer your forwarding to use my port tester instead

Right now the rule with ports "All" is wide open to the net, you have every single port forwarding to that computer :wink:
