Need Help For Opening Ports For A Server

Hey,

I am trying to run a DC++ hub, so far everything is configured correctly for it but the problem is, I cant connect to my hub and neither can anyone else. I keep getting this message:

*** Connecting to server.no-ip.org...
*** Connection refused by target machine

People have suggested opening ports on my router. I have check around the DC++ forums and this forum and found nothing to help me.

I have tried installing my router software but it informs me that there is no internet connection even though I have.

I have turned off the firewall (I have SP2) and disabled Zone Alarm.


So does anyone know how to open ports on a router?

Thanks.

Well you would have to find out waht ports to forward, go into your router settings and look for port forwarding option.
I pressume that would be done using the router software?

Hmm if so that aint possible. The software will not install due to the fact it does not detect that there is an internet connection.

Is there any other way this can be done?

I have a Linksys router.

Uh oh, I have no idea what the username and password is. Its been like 2 years since I looked at the config page!

Is there anyway to retrieve the username/password?

You can reset the router by hitting the reset button at the front, you have to hold it in for about 30 seconds. This will return it to factory defaults.

I'm confused as to what router software you are talking about, do this in the config page http://192.168.1.1
The recent routers (I kno linksys for sure) come with an easy software wizard thats supposed to make setting up your router easier. Id rather do it myself.

Linksys Royter: Click Advanced>Forwarding
Enter the info here, see attachment for sample

Admiral,

I think that J was wondering about router software, as in install in the computer as opposed to the user interface that gets accessed through the browser.

I have a Linksys and I'm not aware of any "router software" to help setup the router except the browser interface.

-edit- Oh wait ... there was something on the cd that came w/ it that was utter junk I think :rolleyes:
