If you have not setup incoming port forwarding on your router for the required ports that you games use then no-one will be able to connect. Most router's firewalls or NAT block incoming connections but not outgoing which is why you can connct to their systems.

You need to find out what ports you need to forward for your games and setup your router to allow outside connections to those ports though to the internal IP address of your games PC.

No idea, don't play online games - someone else may be along to give you the details, or you can search google.

IT says on my router NAT configuration START port and END port do i type the port number in both of these.?

If its only one port then put it in both start and end.
You can also forward a range of ports this way,
place the begining of the range in 'start' and finish in 'end'.

I heard that ISP,s can block certain ports so u cant start a server. Is this true and does plusnet block ports :shock:

That is true, but not with PlusNet.

Some port are blocked with the Home & Biz Surf products, to prevent P2P, however, MOH should not be blocked.

THe only port global blocked is port 135 to prevent the propergation of viruses.

No.

Your router supports that ability to forward port ranges, rather than just a single port at a time.

IE. if you want to forward ports 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12, you would put a start of 5 and the end of 12.

For single ports, you put thr same number in the start and end. EG, for port 12, you would put 12, 12.

It's probably UDP but there should be an option for both
or 'All'.
