Im having some problems getting my ports forwarded.
on my router/modem i have my ipv4 set as a static with that ipv4 and MAC address for my computer listed, the port is 25565 and listed as both TCP and UDP and directed to that ipv4 adress. According to my isp i have the setting on the router configured right.
I've set exceptions in the firewall for access to the port, but even with the firewall disabled its still coming back negative on my test.
If anybody could offer any advice i would appreciate it, please let me know any information you need to help.
1. is it fine to leave the port as both, or do I need to reset it to only TCP?
2. the static ip is listed above in the first attachment. I've removed the mac address and the list of other connected clients.
This is the same as is listed as my ipv4 under an ipconfig search.
3. I've added exceptions for incoming and outgoing data on that port for TCP and UDP, given permission to minecraft and to Java as well.
however with firewall completely off I'm still not getting ports open on test.
