      Question Warcraft 3 Battlenet Hosting Problem with sky router

      The Problem Is really annoying i almost wish i had my modem back so i dont have to port forward and since the port forward guide uses old pictures its almost impossible to follow.

      I am using the Router: Sky F@st 2504
      I understand i must open ports 6112 - 6119 in order to host a game on battlenet for warcraft 3 the problem is doing it.


      First the guide on Port Forward tells me to go into
      Security -> services and add a service

      called : Name1
      TYPE: TCP
      Starting Port: 6112
      Finishing Port: 6119

      I have done that without any problems

      Now it tells me to go onto firewall rules and make an inbound service
      this is where i find it HARD.

      This is the help picture from the port forward guide:



      But this is what i see:


      + do i need to make an outbound connection?
      + Do i need to also make a UDP type aswell as a TCP

      HELP ROFL?
      What do i need to add...
      following the guide on port forward never helped

      HELP WILL BE APPRECIATED!

      "Filter Name" is just a description. Call it Battlenet, Jim, anything you like.

      "Send to LAN Server" needs to be the internal IP address of your PC running the Battlenet server. Bear in mind that this might change if you reboot either the router or your PC.

      You only need to put something in the "WAN Users" section if you want to restrict - by IP address - who on the Internet can connect to your server.

      I would *think* that you don't need to open an outbound connection as all outgoing traffic is allowed by default.

      A quick Google suggests UDP is required as well as TCP.

      HTH.
