My guide to port forwarding
« on: April 22, 2014, 08:38:34 PM »

I worte a small guide on port forwarding.

The guide covers :

Basic port forwarding
Windows firewall setup.

The first part of the guide focuses on setting up a lightwight webserver of which proper setup can be tested.
Once you are ablte to get the small webserver running you should be familiair with port forwarding and able to setup forwards for a planet explorer server.

I hope the guide proofs usefull.
as always i can't guarantee that everything will work but atleast it should give some insight in basic actions you need to take.

since teh guide is to big to upload to the forum (lots of images) you can get it here

It seems that even with the new port configuration from 0.7x we still need the 8800 - 8815 port range to be forwarded aswell.

when you start with the port forwarding for the planet explorer server also add the 8800 - 8815 range for both protocols

in case you need information about your router try to look here : http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm

find the brand of router you use and click it

now you'll get an advertisement just close it.

Now click the router type you have if it's in the list.

on the next page there will be a paragraph like this :

If you do not see the program you are forwarding ports for, you can try checking out our Default Guide for this router, which is a generic guide that should help you get through the basics of getting an open port on your 3c510.

click default guide and it will bring you to an small explanation how to do port forwarding for your router.

There is also a Java app called "UPnP port mapper", that allows to easily forward ports on upnp enabled routers.
