I'm not sure this subsection was the most appropriate for my question but here it goes anyway. I recently got a mobile modem, a Huawei E583C to be exact. However, I'm having an incredibly hard time opening a certain port needed for a game (Civilization IV). The port is 2056, but after meddling around forever in the router/modem IP settings, cannot do it. I've forwarded ports before with my old linksys router but this thing has got me beat. I have already set up a static IP (192.168.101) and my router IP is 192.168.1) I've tried the DMZ option using my static IP and nothing. I don't have any firewall software and even have the windows one disabled. On the router page there is nothing that says firewall but there is a special applications options and also a virtual server one but not sure how to do it. I'm on a windows XP. BTW, the software I'm using to check if the port is open is PFPortchecker. Also, I know its a firewall problem because when I play the game, people get blocked off from me.
Thanks in advance
