Forwarded my ports last week, changed auto.

November 3, 2011 at 03:12:37
Specs: Windows 7
Last week I forwarded two ports, 100 and 82 and they worked perfectly in Canyouseeme.org however this week they've managed to change and unforward themselves. Not too sure how, beforehand the IP I forwarded on the settings was ending in .4 and now when I /ipconfig in CMD it's .2, so I changed the forward settings to .2 and it still says its not successful. I think it might have something to do with the firewall settings however when I /ipconfig now in CMD I get a new message that was never there before.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance

nothing wrong with the ipconfig. Perhaps you are not used to seeing ipv6?

part of forwarding if to set the pc at a STATIC ip address. Appears your pc is set to dynamic which means it changes. It changes invalidates the forwarding.

You misunderstand.

"Appears your pc is set to dynamic" <-- note PC not wan port

"would turning my router off and on change my ip?"
certainly COULD change your PCs ip which in turn would invalidate your port forwarding.

no ip will not make any difference concerning when your wan ip changes so it shouldn't come into the mix concerning your forwarding.

That is unless you have some kind of firmware update on the router that using no ip.

Ah thanks for your help man, according to http://portforward.com/ my ports that I want open are, however http://canyouseeme.org/ I get "Error: I could not see your service on 77.101.127.155 on port (100)
Reason: Connection refused" so I presume they're ok? o.O

A port is "open" when it is forwarded AND has something "listening" on that port.

For example forwarding port 3389 would do nothing if the RDP service is not listening on that port.

what app do you have that is listening on port 100?
