Port forwarded, still not open

D-link / Dir-300

Specs: Windows XP

I have a cable moden (Cisco epc3010) and a router (Dlink DIR-300). I've set the IPs to all of 4 computers and forwarded the ports as the guide says. Still the portcheck program says that the ports are closed. Btw the cable modem is bridged. I've tried without Zone Alarm and windows firewall and also with my computer connected straight to the cable modem. Can anyone help?

What ports are you trying to forward, and do you have the appropriate server programs running on the targets?

I''m trying to forward port tcp 4500 so I could host a game. Yes I had the game running but still says connection refused...

Bridged to what? Why did you do this?

A port forward is pretty straightforward and simple to do on most any SOHO Router I've worked with. I have no experience with the model you have but it should still be a simple case of forwarding a specific port to a specific LAN IP.

game port = 4500
IP of PC hosting game (in server mode) =

Forward in router should look as follows:

Forward port 4500 to

I mean the cable modem isn't NAT. My ISP has done the settings to my cable modem. Yes I've done the port forwarding in my router just like you said.

I am experiencing a similar issue. My D-Link DIR-825 router is connected to a Cisco EPC3010 cable modem.

I have set up Port Forwarding but still cannot get a connection to my NAS and PC Servers.

I was interested if you got any feedback from your ISP. Maybe they had blocked inbound traffic to your modem?
