Hello all!

Well, I just got rid of a few nasty viruses, and now I am unable to forward ports. All worked fine before the virus incident. Thanks to some of you, (recommended I post here, but I think the virus is to blame), I got the virus fixed, see here:


However, things are not quite the same. I finally got to relax, and actually use the computer, to do some online racing with my buds. BUT, now, I am unable to host/ run a server; in other words my port forwarding does not work! I looked at all the settings on the router (has a password), and all are perfect. I ran port forwarding tests with PFportchecker, and they are not working. Firewall is off.

BTW, I have removed eset and super spyware tools that I used to eliminate the threat.

Any ideas?

Thanks, as always!

Hey Fastsigns,

What ports exactly are you trying to forward?? Can you give me the Brand & Model of your router? And are the ports forwarded from within the router to your computers IP Address??
