Recently, I was helping someone forward ports to set up a Bukkit server and @Banana937 recommended that I make it a separate post because it was pretty through and seemed to cover a lot, I decided to take his advice and make it a separate post. So here it is: Instructions: 1) Press the windows key, type in CMD, and press enter 2) Type "ipconfig" without the quotes 3) Search through the list until you see something that starts with 192.blahblahblah (make sure that this is next to the field "Default Gateway"). 2 lines above it will be your "IPv4 Adress", also write that down for later. 4) Open up the web browser of your choice (but I think that you can guess I would recommend Firefox) and type in that number that was next to "Default Gateway" in your address bar at the top (So instead of going to www.bukkit.org, you will pretend to go to 192.168.1.1) 5) The username is probably admin and there probably is no password. If that doesn't work, try admin for the password. 6) This is the part where you kinda need to help yourself. Find a tab (at the top) along the lines of Applications/Gaming/Port Forwarding/NAT. If something asks for an application name, put anything (I recommend Minecraft). For the port, put 25565, and for the "forwarded IP address" (might be a little different), put your IP address (that you wrote down from step 3). If something mentions "protocol" such as UDP or TCP, put both. If you can't, then do this 2 times, 1 with UDP and the 2nd TCP. Then hit save. If you have any problems, a screen shot of the last step you get to would be really helpful, along with some basic information such as router manufacturer, model, and the information from step 3 would be really helpful. FAQ: Q: The username Admin and the password admin/nothing isn't working for me. A: Check out this site to find out what the default username and password is. Q: I need more "specific" help with port forwarding (I am really new at this...). A: Check out this awesome link (provide by @ohtwo) for more detailed instructions on port forwarding. Q: I logged into my router and can't exactly find one of the tabs that you suggested, but I found something similar, like Port Triggering, but some of the things that you talked about aren't there. A: You are probably in the wrong place. If you cannot specify the port(s) you want to forward, your IP address, and TCP/UDP/Both, then you are in the wrong place and should give me a list of all the places that you can go and I will see what I can do.
