Monica wrote:Port forwarding sucks. What are you trying to use port forwarding for? I work for an internet service provider, and I've learned that some of the most common reasons why port forwarding may not work could be due to the following:
- Do you have a firewall? If so, make sure it's not blocking any traffic.
- If you've done port forwarding before on the same router, make sure there aren't any existing port forwarding rules, especially for the same port. If there are, change the ports or remove them.
- Real Idiot Test - are you sure you have the correct IP's?
- Not sure why, but some routers may need a reset or reboot after port forwarding rules are set. Did you do this?
If you can provide more information, the more answers you might receive here.

You could check your isp's website or call customer services to find out what they block.
In my case I can have stuff unblocked for my connection but they charge 20 euro each time I request a change.
