Opening ports with SMC7004ABR router
goose Apr-04-02 07:00 PM
Hi All,

I'm having a little difficulty with my SMC Barricade which I'm hoping someone out there can help me with. I have a Win2K Pro box (.36) and a Win2k Advanced Server (.16) on my network right now, both sharing my cable modem through the SMC router.

My specific problem is opening ports. I've been successful in opening port 80 for a web server and it works marvelously. Now I want to host an online gaming server which uses 4 seperate ports and I can't get it to work at all. I've even tried setting the server machine as a DMZ, but to no avail.

I'm assuming that I need to set this port forwarding up in Special Applications and not Virtual Server, but I'm not entirely sure. Here's the info on the ports:

Master Server 27900
CD-Key server 29910
Game Query Port 28672
Game Port 27888

If anyone can suggest which value(s) I should be putting in trigger port and which I should be putting in public ports that would be great. I've tried putting each one on a seperate line, but somehow I don't think that's right.

Thanks in advance,
Goose

Its for Global Operations. I actually figured it out at around 3:00am this morning. I was only opening the ports in Special Application and not forwarding the requests to my server in Virtual Server. It works great now.
