Port Forwarded But Still Blocked

January 6, 2013 at 04:43:08
Specs: Windows 7

Hey there! I am trying to create a server in a game called Minecraft. I have forwarded port 25565 (which I put in the server settings for incoming connections and I checked that 10 times so that is ok) on my thomson TG787. I've opened the same port on my firewall in windows 7. I've disabled my firewall completely. But it's still blocked. It's simply does'nt work...
I'm 100% I fixed it on the router, unless someone is gonna tell me that there is still an option in the router that might fix it...

Sorry for my bad english. (I'm coming from Sweden)

Did your ISP block it?

Yes, first thing that came to my mind. A lot od ISPs don't like domestic customer running games servers as it chews up bandwidth,

Check with your ISP.

If your ISP isn't blocking it, make sure you set a static IP on your Windows 7 box and are forwarding the port to the correct internal IP address. You may also want to try connecting from another system on your LAN to make sure the Minecraft server is actually listening and accepting connections. You could also do this locally with telnet.

How are you testing it? You can't test it from the same location. Have a friend test it from another location. If he can't connect, have him port scan your IP address. If the port doesn't show as opened, it's either blocked by the ISP or something is misconfigured.

If you google "Gibson Research Shield's Up" you can use that to scan your external connection to see what ports (if any) are open.

There are only 4 possibilities here:
1) Your router is broken and can't port forward
2) You haven't configured the port forward correctly on your router
3) Your game server isn't "listening" for connections properly (ie: not configured correctly)
4) Your ISP is blocking

Have you called your ISP to ask them if they're blocking that port?

If the ISP is blocking the port,I should be able to log in, but not other people thats not connected to my local network. But I can't log in.

I scanned my ip adress and port 25565 on an port scan tool, when I had the server opened. It says that the port 25565 responding.
But when the server is'nt open , it don't responding.

If you are trying to log into your server from your local network it probably wont work and it has nothing to do with port forwarding.

To connect to a server that is on the same local networks you are you need a router that does local loop-back. Very few do, the only routers I have seen with local loop-back are Belkin. You have to connect from outside your local net work or go to it direct using the local IP address which doesn't need port forwarding. You cannot do it via your public IP address which does need port forwarding

Of course the port doesn't appear to be opened if nothing is listening on it. Where were you when you scanned it?

Have you contacted your ISP yet to find out of they are blocking the port?

Until you have confirmed that one way or the other you could just end up chasing your tail.

Do that & test it from outside your network. You are making it hard on yourself.

I don't think it's the ISP. After some research on the internet I figured out that it may be is that my computer cannot resolve the domain name for session.minecraft.net, because when I try to log in to my server, it always says: Failed to verify username session authentication server unavailable!

Do someone know how to fix that problem?

Where did you get session.minecraft.net from? You can't use that domain unless you actually own minecraft.net? Is that your contact information below?

No, actually not.
But a guy on bukkit forums (Bukkit is a kind of plugin server for minecraft.) said that it was the problem.

You can't use any Fully Qualified Domain Name unless you register it & you certainly can't register any variation of minecraft.
