Re: Techincolor tg582n portfoward not working - PLEASE HELP

Are you using any third party firewall software on your PC ?

I presume your PC is using DHCP to acquire its IP address btw, because static IP don't work when trying to use port forwarding on TG582n.

zZz Are you saying what I think you are?
From my understanding of your post it implies that when the IP address of the PC is fixed (static) the TG582n router is unable to forward packets to it. Is this correct? Surely this statement or my understanding must be wrong!
If this is the case then the easiest fix is to throw that piece of **** in the bin and get a proper router.

Avast is the only 3rd party program I could think of that would even begin to intefer. I'll try disabling it and then fowarding, though.
As for  what you said about IP's , my router is using a static IP as far as I know, but I'm almost certain that dosn't affect it? I've had a static IP for years and never had an issue like this.

I've tried some TPlink router I picked up at curries for 40 pounds, still got the same result, didn't work.

Yes.
If you have manually assigned a static IP address on your device, then what I have said is true.
Only workaround is to let the TG582n use DHCP to assign an IP address to your device.  Using telnet, you can make the TG582n assign the same (static) DHCP IP address to your device.
I don't use the TG582n for this (and other) reasons.

But having said that it does not explain why the TP Link router failed. My router is a TP Link and works as expected. This then leaves you with your Firewall, a mis-configured server that is working in wombat mode or even operator error.
What OS is your server running on? I am assuming Windows, so have you tried turning off the Linux Transport optimisations? Also, you might want to try the following:
Control Panel > Windows Firewall
Select "Allow a program or feature through the Firewall"
Check the list for an entry for minecraft_server.
If it's not there, then create one.
