Whenever I check to see if the port is open it isn't. I already set up a static ip address and added the port to my router and windows firewall. I followed all the stuff in the portforward.com guide and it still doesn't work. I added a DMZ and tried it then removed it and tried again. I also tried changing the port and it still didn't work. My router is a belkin F9K1103 v1. Any suggestions?
I am having the exact same problem. Getting ready to connect to a belkin chat agent thingy for help. Will tell you the outcome.
Ok, so I (Being the complete and total retard I am) hadn't set up a static ip on my computer. I did that and it was all I needed. Also, I was trying to get my friend to join and test it. I gave him (yet again, RETARD) the ip of my computer instead of my external ip. Don't make that mistake.
