Me and my friend are testing an old RAT (poison ivy). Since I initially don't really trust any virus related stuff, I decided to set up the 'server' of the RAT on my virtual machine.
Everything OK and well, but.. then I had to give in my IP adress & port. I tried hunderds of things, even my internal IP (from virtualbox), since I figgured that my VM and host pc have the same external IP. Well, when that didn't work out I did some intern port forwarding in my network settings of the virtual machine and after eventually wasting 2 hours of my life I just quit the whole project.
Now we picked it up again and I'm less afraid to set the RAT up on my PC without VM. I thought it would be a lot easier without all these extra's but I'm clearly wrong. When I test the connection (on myself) it doesn't work. So obviously it won't work for others either. My friend doesn't use any anti-virus and it didn't work out for him either, even after he bought a new router. (no not solely for this
This is my current setup:
And this is my router:

I tried more that just port 4444... but I have no clue why it doesn't works.
Can somebody help me?
By the way, I'm NOT doing anything illegal, me and my friend are trying to learn something here.
