It is not normal to be using port 80 on a game server. Port 80 is usually reserved for HTTP and browsing the WWW with an web browser. If you do for ward port 80 you will not be able to use the WWW on that network. All incoming HTTP packets will be directed to the game server and a game server isn't a web browser.

If you must use port 80 then disable the remote management service in the router. The chances are you don't need it and it is a security hole if it is enabled unnecessarily.

You have to disable web management of the router from the web, because this uses port 80.
Then you can forward port 80 to your server.

@StuardS
If you do for ward port 80 you will not be able to use the WWW on that network. All incoming HTTP packets will be directed to the game server and a game server isn't a web browser.

This is not correct!
The request for www from a client computer comes from port range 1024 to 65535. The reply from a web server in the internet comes normally from port 80 to a high port in the local net (also range 1024 to 65535).

Therefore, it's absolutely no problem, to forward port 80 (it's from the internet) to the local servers port 80 or whatever.
And you are surely able to browse the net on this configuration.

So why does every web server I have ever seen respond to port 80 and every router port forwarding stipulates HTTP:80.

A request to a client from to a server on anything but port 80 will fail unless the server has been configured to respond to some other port. What is going on in internal networks is irrelevant, all sort of things can go one there. However outside in the big wide world there has to be some conformity.


Try this.

www.computing.net:1324

It fails becasue it is trying to use port 1324

However try this:

www.computing.net:80

It works. That is becasue the computing.net server is programmed to respond to port 80 as are 99.99% of web servers.

I meant, that most web servers do listen to port 80.
But clients do request from a high port (1024 - 65535) to even this port 80 of the web server.
The reply to this request comes from the web servers port 80 and goes to a high port of the client, that started the request!!!

Forwarding port 80 means, to forward request from the internet to a machine inside you local network.
But this surely doesn't work, if the routers web interface is configured for administration from the internet and works itself on port 80.

I myself have 4 routers, where I disabled the administration from the internet, which uses port 80, and forwarded port 80 to my local situated web server and it works.

NOTE: we are talking about forwarding port from outside to inside the local lan, not from inside lan to web!

You have to check the router settings for that.
See the routers manual on howto configure web management.

In routers setup in the remote management section, read the text in the right pane.

You will read, that this option allows the remote management from the internet. It has nothing to do with remote management from the local lan.

So disable this option and check it out.
