I'd like to think of myself as a DIY kind of person. I 'm not a big "help me" person. But I always willing to learn. My situation is this. i have a device/application that I can't get to work through port forwarding even though I have established the right information in my router. I tried to ping the port and can not get it to open. I belive that I have to establish a another DHCP reservation, but not skilled enough. Any advice on web sites to learn or if someone could walk me through the tasks. would be much appreciated. give a man a fish, eats for a day, teach him to fish, eats for life. Thanks

What device/application is this, and what port does it use? Can you take a screenshot of the port forwarding settings in your router? The more information you can provide, the better.

When you say "I tried to ping the port", you should know that ping uses the ICMP protocol (not ports like TCP or UDP).
