I've been trying for the past two days to open a few ports for a game (Minecraft) these ports being 25565-25568 however no matter what i do these ports remain closed.
These ports are also added to my firewall on the computer this game server is running on
However they remain closed.
I have tried restarting the router, resetting the router and calling support which they said since I've tried everything there isn't anything they can do.
Whilst I am no gamer, I thought that the only port that needed to be forwarded for Minecraft is TCP port 25565:-
Have you set the IP address on this PC as either a static IP address outside of the DHCP scope or a DHCP Reserved one, you must do one or the other. As far as the Windows firewall (assuming that is what you have) it is best to add inbound rules using "Windows firewall with advanced security". With this, you can add an inbound rule based on the application. I can provide an example if you require it.
How are you testing the ports?
Didn't know the first part was needed so i haven't done that, as for the firewall those ports were added to the inbound rules using Windows firewall with advanced security
Edit: DHCP is set to reserve one already. and i check using a site such as https://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/
If you set your rule up as per mine for TCP 25565 does the port show open or closed? If closed can you get me the output from this command prompt command:-
No worries, glad it is sorted. Any chance of a screenshot of this option in Java, I don't use that on my PC and it might help others? PM it to me if you prefer.
