Port forwarding router issue


Recommended Posts

I’m trying to run a Minecraft server on my system at home, and it SHOULD be a super simple operation. I have a port forward going to my system through the router (Netgear WNDR3700). Windows Firewall is disabled.

Port forwarding in general is working, e.g. my VPN connection to that machine works.

The MC server is running fine, because I can connect to it both via localhost and via LAN IP.

My ISP is not blocking incoming ports or connections.

When I try to connect, nothing happens, it times out, presumably because it can’t get through at all. So the question becomes: is there an easy way just to debug/isolate whether port forwarding is working in a router? The various Web based systems are too vague when it comes to trying to figure out if they work.


I was recommended to follow these guides but I think i am missing something:

If you already didn't search it up then here. if you did and nothing worked, you should try calling your ISP and asking them to open the port you want.
