cant delete a port.. pls help quick
« on: March 19, 2015, 10:24:52 AM »
hello, i have a hauawei echolife HG520b router and im trying to host a minecraft server with host 25565. the problem is i created another identical one with another ip on another computer on the same router.. (i think that's why). now the previous computer was damaged beyond recognition, and i cant seem to find a way to delete the old port. when i try adding the server, it tells : ERROR: FAIL TO UPDATE DUE TO... DUPLICATE PORT NUMBER ! so what can i do? thanks in advance:D
i'm really on in a hurry as i'm recording a series and running out of time:D

Just go tot he port forwarding page in the router and click the delete button on the old rule, or just edit the rule and put the local Ip of the computer you are on now :wink:
