    I am going to create a 1.4.2 server for some friends of mine and myself to play on, when the 1.4.2 jar comes out.

    So I was wondering if I can get a complete tutorial on how to port forward my server once I get it up.

    If you can do this it would be greatly appreciated!

    Well, port forwarding is done via your router, so there is no universal tutorial on port forwarding. If you have a Thompson router, I know how to port forward that, but if not, then search YouTube for port forwarding tutorials for your router, or make another thread like this with your router in the title, so people who know how to do it can post.

    Do I have to do anything with my router by doing this? And my mind is blank,what does CMD stand for? :eek: And which ip adress do you mean in the bold?
  10. I have Chrome and it works great for portforwardig

    ok If you have WIN7
    Click the little widows button in the bottom left conrer and then type CMD in the shearch box
    a black box will pop up and tpye "ipconfig" you will see IPV4 and IPV6 conncet with the IPV4 when you wanna join your server

    Well I actually haven't done it yet. But I understand what I have to do now.
    I'm waiting for 1.4.2 to come out, since I started the world in single player already in 1.4, so i've gotten bored of making the spawn town pretty.

    But if I have any more problems when I'm starting the server up, Ill post in this topic.
  16. Don't worry it is easy and take a few seconds and Feel Free to PM Me if you need more help!

    What search bar thats not google/bing/yahoo? And where can i find to get to step 4? The username.. How do I get to the page which asks this :eek:
  21. Offline


    If you're using Windows, open up start and search "cmd" then press enter.

    Next, type "ipconfig /all" and scroll up to "Default Gateway". Open your browser and enter that address into your address bar. This should open your router's admin panel. You're responsible for knowing the login to your router.

    Most routers come with the default username "Admin" and the default password "password". Once you get in find the port forwarding section for your browser. Create a new service for your server then go back to the cmd prompt and grab your "IPv4" address.

    Now, enter that address as the forwarding IP and enter your server port and the port you'd like to open. Be sure to set it to TCP/UDP if you'd like to enable querying on your server as well.

    Should work then.

    Nvm xD

    So I typed the number in my browser, but it takes me to a page showing my router stuff, no username/password, and no portforwarding section. Just modem status, quick setup, wireless setup, utilities, and advanced setup.

    Which one?
    edit: So basically I think I was already signed in.. So the things in bold are the only things thatshowed up, I can't find portforwarding though.

    You there?

    I'm using Qwest by the way...And I dont see any applications gaming/portforwarding..
    Just configs

    Try the advanced setup section, I'm sure there's some nice little port forwarding options in there.
  24. Offline


    Theres blocking, broadband settings, IP addressing, QoS, Remote Management, routing, and security.

    Oh! Hold up! under security I see advanced port forwarding

    Okay, give me the name of your router with the model # to make this a little easier for the both of us. Otherwise, we'll be stuck here playing the guessing game :p

    Okay great, there should be somewhere where you can click to add new services. Add a new service then specify the port of your server and forward it on your IPv4 address. Make sure you forward on both the TCP and UDP.

    1. Set the LAN port and IP information.
    Starting Port: 25565
    Ending Port: 25565
    Protocol: TCP/UDP
    LAN IP Address: IPv4 (replace this with your actual IPv4 address)

    Click apply. Lol, as long as you pay your internet bill every month you shouldn't have to pay anything else to do something as simple as port forwarding.

    Okay theres some other writing in the step 2 part. Should I leave it there?
  29. Offline


    Leave that blank. Once you've gotten all the info entered click apply, then head over to That's the IP that you need to give to people in order for them to be able to connect. You on the other hand can connect with "localhost", "", or any other local address alias.

    Okay! Its totally free though right? I wont have to pay Qwest for setting this up? xD Sorry im such a noob.

    Hey I have to go.. I'll be back in like an hour, and if I have any other troubles, Ill let you know!
