Frequently Asked Questions

If PFConfig ran and your ports are still not forwarded there are many possible causes.

  • Make sure that you are not blocking Internet access for the application that you want to forward using a software firewall. Try disabling your software firewall and see if the problem goes away. Keep in mind, Windows XP has a built in firewall that is OFTEN the culprit here.
  • Make sure that you are forwarding ports to the correct computer in your network. Computer are identified by IP addresses, and you need to be sure that you are forwarding ports to YOUR IP address.
  • Check out your routers specifications and make sure that it doesn't have a firewall in it that could be blocking your ports.
