Port forwarding HELP me!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I know ppl are sick of hearing this, but how do I host games? I am currently trying to host Warcraft 3: Frozen throne, and have looked at blizzards website and other ppl's instructions.
I have done all the steps exactly, but it doesn't work. Even when i turn off my network's firewall I can't host. I know I am supposed to forward port 6112 through TCP, but it still doesn't work

I think since I have SBC Yahoo Dsl that might be the problem because their port system might not work. If anyone can help me post something please I am desperate.

Im sure their port system works.Forward both TCP and UDP(in and out). Did you set up a static ip? Thats the ip you use when forwarding,not the external,the internal(The one you see in ipconfig).

ok i set it to port: 6112 for TCP and UDP and thats all u can set it for basically for sbc routers, which is why i think that might be the problem.

Just to make sure we are all on the same page, I am going to ask a few questions.

What is your Internal IP?
What is your External IP?
What type of router do you have?
Do you have a personal firewall (XP sp2)?

my IP address is 172.16.1.35
my router is a homeportal that you get with SBC DSL
MY computer has the built in Windows XP firewall, I could try turning that off

From what I can see (assuming you are posting from the computer in question) the only ports that are open are 21 & 5190. Do you recall specifically opening or forwarding those ports?

If you are using the same method to open up TCP/UDP 6112 as you did for the other ports than there must be a software block that is preventing access. Some providers do block certain ports and there is a possiblity that SBC has blocked this port at a higher level. Usually home service prohibits running ANY type of server and blocking ports is one way to enforce this. However in my experience it is rare to have a large provider do this.
