Firewall & Router Help

Hi,

I cant connect to my rented server (DRS 2006) through my router modem, it disconnects after 30 seconds telling me no data sent. I have disabled the firewall but it still does not work.

I swapped the router modem for a standard ADSL modem and that works fine.

Do I need to open up certain ports on the router to steam to my server?

Thanks

It's likely you need to open or route ports. You need whatever port you stream from as well as the one higher (per say port 8000 and 8001).

Post what type of router you are using, hopefully someone else has worked with one and can help you get it configured.

Its a British Telecom Voyager 2000

I have opened up port 8000 and 8001 and disabled the firewall. This still does not work.

I did run a dos command:
netstat -n

this tells me what ports are open on my pc, it shows my local address 192.168.1.2:XXXX trying to connect to my rented servers ip and port. (try it)

The problem is the port number of my local address (shown as XXXX above) changes every time I try to connect.

Confused? I am!

If you read the thread properly it says about isp's blocking ports or changing them. please read! its all there.

Try a forum search.

I dont thinks its to do with your server renting its your ISP because it sounds like its blocking the ports it probably has a web proxy or something.

Thanks for the reply, and I did read the thread.

as mentioned in my first post I swapped my router modem with firewall for a stantand ADSL modem without firewall/router. And that works fine.

So I dont think its my ISP blocking or changing ports.

I think its a setup problem my router modem, And I need to use it as it has wireless capabilities.

No ime sure thats definetly not it, althoguh if its wireless?

just a tip were you using usb or ethernet on your router?

Dont bother installing usb drivers they are crap just use the ethernet and cofigre it in network neighbourhood.

As reguards to the router if it is your program which i wouldent think so, send it back to the store where you got it.
