      Unable to portforward.

      I have followed this and numerous other tutorials and not a single one has worked. - Instructions for adding a firewall rule to the Sky Router Netgear DG834GT

      I have all the services, a static internal IP, a LAN IP, the firewall rules and nothing. The port is always closed. I know the application has to be running for the port to be used and it is. Another problem is the uPnP feature has seemingly stopped working. I thought it was Windows fault because the firewall isn't responding and can't be turned on or off but I can't get open ports whilst on Linux either.

      Any help?

      Download this application - Download Simple Port Forwarding 3.0.15 Free - Will make forwarding ports on your router as easy as a few clicks - Softpedia Reset your router by pushing a pin into the reset hole on the rear, hold it in till the lights flash. Use the application to set your ports up.
