Reverend which is the client side of MatchWatch needs to have 5600 through 5699 using the TCP protocol forwarded. You also
need to forward port 5500 through 5599 TCP for Reverend to talk with MatchWatch.
If you have a second computer that will be playing Reverend, you should forward port 12205 UDP to that computer and enter 12205 in the front of Reverend.
