      I believe it should be the address of your router - normally 192.168.0.1

      Someone correct me if I'm wrong

      I think it should be the address of your pc on the lan, not the address of the router which is 192.168.0.1. The router will assign addresses of pc's connected to it ascending from the router - ie first pc will be 192.168.0.2, second 192.168.0.3 etc. Therefore if more than 1 pc is connected then the ip could change depending on which connects first. Personally I found that assigning a static address to my pc ( 192.168.0.xxx behind the router ) and then using that in rules works.

      Well 1 of you is right. the question is which one.

      .

      I used port forwarding on pipex because they traffic shaped and tbh i had mixed results. I used the pc's port which was 192.168.0.2 but as i said this worked sometimes and not others , but that may have been down to pipex.

      Anyway i am sure someone will correct us all if were wrong.

      I suppose I should have also asked what application you are trying to forward ?

      When you are forwarding ports, the IP address is always the one on your target PC. As mentioned, it is advisable to manually configure your IP addresses if you want to use port forwarding and have more than 1 PC on the network.

      If you go on,
      http://192.168.0.1/setup.cgi?todo=nb...le=devices.htm

      Find the HOST Computer from that LIST and make a note of the IP, That is the one you are using.

      Nod @ MrTom2985's Comment, You should set that HOST Computer to a Static Internal IP;

      Tom is dead right here. As he mentions, its better to use static addresses for your PCs rather than rely on DHCP if you do this (because DHCP might give the PC a different address next week or something)

      There is nothing wrong with DHCP if you use address reservations. That way you don't have to worry about manually configuring each pc with a static address and you can also then guarantee which address each machine will get.

      This is true. For a small network (such as one at home), its still probably easier to use a static address though, isn't it?
