I have had a terrible time trying to Port Forward with BT Broadband
I am currently trying to Port Forward a game called Minecraft so that my friends can join my server, but they get the message "Connection Timed Out"
The port for Minecraft is 25565
I have it set up as:
But it still doesn't work, am I doing anything wrong?
My other experience with Port Forwarding is with Halo 1, I had been trying to get that to work
But my friends trying to join my games got the error "Connection timed out" again
Here is how I had Halo set up:
When I did that I was following a guide on Port Forwarding
Presuming these settings were correct, I'd guess this has something to do with setting it with the correct device
I'm currently connecting it with the name of the device, so it may be better for me to connect it to the IP of the device
So where can I find the IP on my computer to put in the "User Defined" category
If somebody could tell me this, I could check to see if that were the case; if it isn't the case I will ask you guys if I could've done anything else wrong
Solved! Go to Solution.

to find your i.p.for your p.c., go to run-type cmd & press enter.then type ipconfig -a and press enter it will then show your p.c.'s i.p. address. If you want your routers i.p. that's different & there are several ways to do this.easiest being,to go to bthomehub.home in a browser & click on advanced,fill in password & then continue to advanced,then go to broadband tab & it will be near the bottom
