so i have looked through all of the routers and the only one that i need isn't on. That would be the xfinity arris tg852g/ct. I have setup a minecraft server before and i know how to do, I don't know how to open the port for the specific minecraft thing. My network status is static. All i need is to know how to get in to the router manager thing where you can open up the ports, so i can host a minecraft server. Please help if you can!!!!
So, what you're saying is you haven't tried to open the ports yet?
In that case, you need to type in your local router IP in your search bar (often something like 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1), and you'll come to the log-on screen. Unless you've changed your username and password, the default is usually Admin and a blank password space. In other words, just click 'log in'.
I don't know the specific menu layout for your arris, but on a D-LINK you navigate through the tabs ADVANCED>PORT FORWARDING. It's probably something similar on yours. After you've opened the port forwarding menu, type '25565' in an available TCP and UDP space, select a name for your forwarded port and assign it to the static IP of the computer you're going to host the server on.
I know how to get in to it and i can i just wanna know what it is specificly. the port. the layout is like Common services: either AIM, FTP, or other Service Type: TCP or UDP Server IP Adress: ___.__.__.__ Starting port:_____ Ending Port: ______
I need to fill in the blanks and What is AIM and TCP?
Ok. so i know i IP and my external. i go into the website were you type 10.0.0.1 into to get into it. i go to advanced and see port forward on one link and port trigger on another. Now i already told you the port forwarding the port trigger is like this Service name: Service type: trigger port from: trigger port to: target port from: target port to:
Now i filled it in like this for Name 1 and TCP like Service name:Name1 Service type:TCP trigger port from:25565 trigger port to:25565 target port from:25565 target port to:25565
And another like: Service name:Name2 Service type:UDP trigger port from:25565 trigger port to:25565 target port from:25565 target port to:25565
My network is static and i enabled both port forward and port triggger. So i did this and when i type in my external ip adress it doesn't work for the minecraft server but when i type in 10.0.0.150 it does work but nobody can join my server. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
