Okay, so, for a game server I'm hosting (7DTD) for a few friends, I'm trying to forward the ports I need open. No big deal - go into the FIos router, add them to the firewall rules, add them to the windows firewall rules, all is well...

 

Sort of.

 

Even though I have port 26900 forwarded, it is being blocked. I was able to get 26901, 902, and 903 forwarded... but 26900 is refusing utterly. canyouseeme.org and yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/ report the same. 

 

Oddly enough, the same is happening with a port for my PLEX server that I set up to be able to get to my music remotely... yet that I can actually access...

 

Is there something goofy with FIOS equipment, or am I missing something?

I appreciate the info - however, I've already made sure the port is open on the system firewall - the issue seems to be that, despite having the forwarding rules on the Fios gateway, it isn't actually forwarding some of them.

And this site.

See if they assist.


Those are the documents I originally followed. The server is on a static IP, the ports are forwarded, etc. Yet, it seems that certain traffic is being blocked on those supposedly open ports. I've even tried restarting the gateway, just to be safe, no love.

Ah, okay, I think I figured it out...

 

I was doing a port to port forward on one of the ports I needed open, rather than an "any to port" forward... *headdesk* I feel foolish now
