      [HELP] Port Forwarding

      Hey I'm sorry; I know there's a sticky & a tonne of threads about PFing but I've followed all of them to no avail. I have no idea what router I'm running, apart from that it's a D-Link with Sky firmware on it.

      I've used Simple Port Forwarding By PcWinTech.com which did everything fine - it added all of the services for me along with the firewall settings.

      But PFPortChecker says that my port that I want open (450) isn't open on either UDP or TCP.

      I could use ProXPN to fix this problem, proving that there's nothing broken or anything stopping PFing.

      What the hell is going on?

      Cheers.

      Have you added the rule for port 450 to the router?

      Re: [HELP] Port Forwarding

      Have you been told to use port 450 tcp/udp which is usually reserved for a tserver?

      As far as I'm aware the low numbered ports (under 500) are usually reserved for specific tasks. Anyway port forwarding is simple enough if you make yourself a static ip (good instructions at portforwarding.com). Then you add the rule to the list and choose whether the port will be UDP or TCP and save it.

      If you can use upnp I find it much easier.

      Martin.

      Well Known Ports: 0 through 1023.
      Registered Ports: 1024 through 49151.
      Dynamic/Private : 49152 through 65535.\
