Windows Firewall Port Exception faded out.
« on: August 13, 2014, 07:54:02 AM »
Hi, I have been following a step by step process to port forward for a Minecraft server, and I ran into a problem. The guide tells me to click on it, yet it is faded for me. Im not sure if this is because the program doesn't support my current router, or if I'm just being stupid  :smiley: Thanks in advance for the help.

Note:
My router is an Arris DG1670A
I also have an Apple Time Capsule, but when I type in my IP in my browser it takes me to Arris.

That feature is one of the paid features.

If you did not pay for it, you do not have it.

If you do not want to pay for it, you must do it manually (meaning first going to Start -> Control Panel).

If you are behind a arris and an apple router then you are behind 2 routers. The arris is your modem from the isp. Is your computer hooked to the arris or the apple time capsule?
