      Port Forwarding

      I tried to forward port 1034 for a shoutcast server I was running from time to time.

      I have had no luck following all the info on here and other sites.

      I set up a new service and selected both TCP & UDP
      Set up a firewall rule for inbound and outbound to allow my new service at all times.
      The PC running the shoutcast server has a static IP address as do all other machines on my network.
      I set the IP address of the server to be a reservered IP.

      I tried with & without firewalls.
      I even set the router to DMZ but no luck.

      I have since entered all the settings into my Linksys router and the port forwarding. Connected that and hey presto it works like a charm.
      So why will it not work on the sky router?

      Try removing the outbound rule leaving just the default outbound rule. Also, remove the IP address reservation and let us know how it goes.

      Thanks tried it still the same result.

      The only thing that does work on the sky router better than my linksys one is the access restriction I set up for my son's pc. he got cut off at the time I set where it's hit & miss with the linksys.

      Re: Port Forwarding

      Curious. I guess that you're happy now with your Linksys, so maybe no point in pursuing this further. However, I can say that port forwarding does definitely work on the Netgear - it's one area that I have investigated inside out (well, down to the iptables anyway!). I can only think it's some config issue.
