Port Forwarding HG659, PLEASE HELP
« on: August 29, 2016, 01:29:05 PM »
Hi,

I've port forwarded, used the "simple static ip" and enabled and checked the port via "simple port checker" it shows "success" to every port but on the websites it shows "failed, error" etc.. What's wrong here?


Thanks

You are so close to allowing users connecting to your server. :)

Here are some notes about listening (quoting my self) :

Quote

a) If you are on Windows I point you to http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/28609/how-can-i-tell-what-is-listening-on-a-tcpip-port-in-windows/

b) If you are not on Windows (Mac, Unix/Linux), go look lookup listen on port and then your OS name using Google (or your other favorite search engine).

c) If nothing is listening any TCP ports that you check with a web based port checker, then TCP ports does not show up as open.

d) Be advised that you can not have two servers listening on the same the port on the same computer. So for example before you use an inbond-client side port checker you must make sure that uTorrent is not running - which explains on http://portforward.com/softwareguides/utorrent/utorrent.htm that they say

Quote
If uTorrent is currently open, you will need to completely close it at this time. Make sure that the green uTorrent icon is not still hiding in your notification area (next to your clock). If it is, right click on it and choose "Exit". Before moving forward to things like selecting torrents, seeders, and leachers, we need to verify that your port is open. We recommend downloading our free Open Port Check Tool to test if incoming connections are being allowed through your router on your uTorrent Listening Port

e) And generally if the program/app is running that you are trying to forward for, then the server is listening.

If you are sure that the program/app is running but it is not listening on the port(s), it would help to know the name of the program/app that you are trying to forward for.
