Hello BC! :-)

 

I've been having trouble with Port Forwarding on this computer for it's whole life.

I go to the router - OK

I go to the PortForward Page - OK

I put the info in and save - OK

It says setting saved. Full of hope, I go to the port checker www.canyouseeme.com, Enter my port (200) and wait... 

Connection Timed Out. That means it's not forwarded. I give up, but then, in a week, I usually try again and it still doesen't work. After a lot of googling, I found out that if you go to the Status page on your Router... In 'Internet IP Address' you should see your ip address.

But the router did not show my IP. It showed my local IP (192.168.xxx.xxx). On the page, it said that if that happens, it means you're behind two routers at the same time but you do not realize it. Well... I did not realize it, yeah. But when I run an ipconfig /all in Command Prompt, this is what I get...

fyi: I do not have any Ethernet plugs plugged in.

So, guys, would you somehow know how to fix this? It would really, really help. Thanks in advance.

Also.

I did a tracert to yahoo.com. Here's the result:

Typically you don't even try to use a port less than 1024.  However, I'm not showing anything using port 200, so you may not have an issue.

 

You can try going to Gibson Research Corporation (GRC) and how port 200 is showing.

 

There is also a possibility that the port is being blocked by your ISP.

 

You are entering the IP address of the computer you want to forward port 200 to (192.168.0.12) in the router configuration, correct?

 

I don't know if Hamachi is causing any of your issues, but it is also a possibility.

You must've not understood my question. I am entering all the correct details in the Port Forwarding section of my router. According to http://www.pcwintech.com/common-problems-fixes-port-forwarding, my problem is number 1. Which means I am behind two routers. According to the page, the router's gateway can be found by going to your main router and looking at its internet IP. So the second 'router's  IP was 192.168.0.11

When I went there turns out it was webserver software (AppServ) installed long ago that didn't work anyway. Of course, it wasn't a router, but my main router was pointing to it. Thus, I decided to remove the webserver software. I restarted, but it was still showing 192.168.0.11, and if I went there again, Google Chrome showed 'Could not connect to 192.168.0.11', but mysteriously my website's logo was showing, that means there's still a bit of the website on my computer, but I cannot find it anywhere. I also found there was a directory in the site named 'e107_images', and has logo.png in it. But I cannot find it on my computer. I am confused. It should be on my computer since it starts with 192.168 (Or should it?!). My main router's still pointing to 192.168.0.11, which means I cannot portforward. Help, please.

So you are trying to host a website? If you are using a non-standard port like 200 for website hosting, then you need to appened that to the end of your IP address as such

http://externalip:200 since you are opening up port 200 externally.

Please download MiniToolBox, and save it to your desktop and run it, and checkmark the following checkboxes:
  • Flush DNS
  • Report IE Proxy Settings
  • Reset IE Proxy Settings
  • Report FF Proxy Settings
  • Reset FF Proxy Settings
  • List content of Hosts
  • List IP configuration
  • List Winsock Entries
  • List last 10 Event Viewer log
  • List Installed Programs
Click Go and post the result (Result.txt). A copy of Result.txt will be saved in the same directory the tool is run.
Note: When using "Reset FF Proxy Settings" option Firefox should be closed.

So please let us know what you are trying to accomplish.

I am trying to portforward a Minecraft server but the webserver is part of when I used to want to make a website hosted from this computer. Anyway, the toolbox log can be downloaded here... I need help making my router not point to the uninstalled web server software. Cause it's still pointing there.

You will need to remove and uninstall the following:

IIS 8.0 Express (Version: 8.0.1557)
IIS Express Application Compatibility Database for x64
IIS Express Application Compatibility Database for x86


As this is providing you with a web server.

Also You need to go into your port forwarding section of the router and clear out the settings.

Okay, but IIS is a package which is pre-installed with Windows.

No it not, as I have installed multiple copies of Windows 7, and have never seen IIS installed by default. That is an installation which requires user intervention and acceptance.
