Hello cdhotfire and welcome to Geeks to Go!

You have to make sure that the machine you want the forwarded packets to go to also has that port open. For example, if you were running your own mail server: Internet mail listens on port 25 (SMTP). On your router, you specify that any packet (data) it receives, destined for port 25, is accepted, but forwarded to the IP and/or hostname that you have entered (your mail server). If however, on the mail server, port 25 is blocked or closed, you won't have accomplished your goal.

What port(s) are you trying to forward?

i am trying to foward port 27015, im trying to run my ftp server. i did foward the ports for my computer, but when i check them they still seem to be closed. ive even used DMZ host to try and open all ports at same time for my computer, and this had no effect, either.

Are you running a firewall on the machine that has your FTP server software? Additionally, is your FTP server configured to listen on 27015?

Ahhhh, thanx chicagotech for digging a little deeper and asking the right question!

cdhotfire, when you are telnetting in to test, are you adding the "27015" to the end of your telnet command? ie:

telnet your.host.net 27015

?

Next step, head to:
https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2

Enter your port information there and have it scan.

I had no luck reaching your IP. What FTP server software are you running, and do you have it configured for secure access (ie SFTP)?
