Ports for Minecraft won't open.
« on: October 16, 2016, 09:27:29 AM »
I put my ports as https://gyazo.com/15365f8d084770150607d5b7d8ba8f1f and they will not open up. In CMD it says my Ipv4 address is 192.168.0.74 so thats what I put my local IP as but they still will not open up. My router/modem is a UBEE DDW365

#1 You used a client side port checker?

For example of one of them http://www.pcwintech.com/simple-port-tester

#2 What software firewall is on your computer?

#2 What software firewall is on your computer?

Yes I did use the simple port tester and it came back positive, I use windows firewall and malwarebytes for antimalware, plus windows defender.

If by positive you mean saying yes, then I:

#1 give to you 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) Generally if the program/app is running that you are trying to forward for, then the server is listening.

f) If the app is running but the port is not in the listening state, then it would help to know the name of the program that you are forwarding for.

#2 (Since you told the name of the program that you are trying to forward for) I point you to (third party site) portforward.com -> under Guides where it says Port Forward Minecraft and then once you are on that page, to where it says Starting the Minecraft Game Server

Alright, It still is not working but I will answer this post to the best of my ability. Using the HowToGeek CMD commands, I found that my MC server is being listened on TCP, but not UDP I also don't have utorrent installed, so nothing to do with that. What else should I do next?

From http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Tutorials/Setting_up_a_server it says that it uses only TCP and by default the port is 25565

Weird... why isn't it working then?

After stopping the client side port checker of course, starting the server that you are trying to forward for and seeing that it is in the listening state:

#1 How are you trying to connect to it (LAN IP OR WAN IP/DDNS that points to the WAN IP) and from behind the NAT router?

#2 For users that are remote (not behind this NAT router), what did you give them to connect to (LAN IP OR WAN IP/DDNS that points to the WAN IP ) you?

Note where slash between WAN IP and DDNS that points to the WAN IP is basic+ly the same thing.

I'm connecting through it by my LAN IP which is 192.168.0.74 which works, and I send my friend my WAN IP, I get my WAN IP from ipchicken

#1 I guess there must be a misunderstanding.

After stopping the client side port checker of course, starting the server that you are trying to forward for and seeing that it is in the listening state:

Did you use web based port checker(s)?

and if so:

a) you did check the ports that you forwarded?

b) what web based port checker(s) did you use?

c) what is/was the result?

#2 Did you Customizing Your Minecraft Server? I point you to (third party sites)

a) portforward.com -> under Guides where it says Port Forward Minecraft and then once you are on that page to where it says about doing that.

b) http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Server.properties

#3 In the router at the forwarding page, does it have anything about the remote (or Source OR external) IP Address, like what you see at http://screenshots.portforward.com/routers/Ubee/DDW365/Forwarding.htm ?

#4 In the router go to Advanced -> Options.

#5 What are these settings set to:

a) WAN Port Blocking

b) UPnP

?

#6 In the router go to Firewall -> Basic

#7 What level is it set to?

#7 What level is it set to?

#1
a. I did check the ports i was forwarding which was 25565
b. the web based port tester I used is http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/
c. The result was "Closed"

#2 I did not customize my MC server since their is no need for it.

#3 No, It does not have the IP Address tab in the center only the one on the left side, which is my IPv4 Address from ipconfig in CMD, if thats correct.

#5 The settings are set to
a. WAN Port Blocking - Disabled
b.UPnP - Enabled

#6 My firewall is https://gyazo.com/8761de23452ffbf1f152cfce2b7b917c

#1 In the router go to Firewall -> Local Log

#2 Does the router show Attacks (Blocked) as well as Permitted connections?

#3 Consider getting a SysLog server.

For an example of a SysLog Server, I point to to snapfiles.com -> Freeware -> Networking ->  Network Monitoring -> RouterSyslog

#4 In the router go to Firewall -> Remote Log.

#5 In there put check mark next to at least Permitted Connections and Blocked Connections and then either for the SysLog server field type put in the last octet of:

a) 255

b) Or of the LAN IP Address of the SysLog server.

#6 Note about 192.168.0.255, that is a broadcast address. All it means is that all computers from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.0.254 (this is assuming the subnet mask of 255.255.255.255 OR NetMask) will get the traffic not just a single computer.

#7 As need be when using a port checker, them it/them to check one or more port(s) that you did not forward to check for Blocked connections. Once you know it (local or remote logs w/ SysLog server) shows Blocked connection, as need disable the real ports that you want to check by changing the setting from enabled to disabled in the forwarding page.

#2 It does show some type of connections. https://gyazo.com/da4cb4ecbf5f1d8d90518edd2f3ab5fc

#3 That syslog server is not available for download

#7 I did do that, I put 25565 UDP/TCP as one, and it said "Open" and I tried again but with different ports, like 25564 TCP/UDP and that came back "Closed.

#1 At http://www.pcwdld.com/free-syslog-servers-windows-and-linux is more reviews of free Syslog server(s) that you could use

Looks that you issue is solved to me, because 25565 UDP/TCP is the port that you are trying to forward for.

If you disagree: Please explain why..

Thank you

It's still not working, I opened up Minecraft and started my server, I can connect through my local IP which is 192.168.0.74 but not the IP through Ipchicken.com, which is the IP I give to my friends.
