Hi,

 

So recently I've been trying to port forward a Minecraft server, and the whole time I thought I was failing since canyouseeme.org 

was returning false (connection timed out). But however when I scan using http://www.ipfingerprints.com/portscan.php, the result 

returned is

 

 

 

 

Host is up.

PORT       STATE      SERVICE

25565/tcp filtered     minecraft

 

 

So it's correctly port-forwarded, however the state is filtered, which they describe as 'A port is marked as "filtered" when the packets are sent to that port, however packet filtering (e.g., firewall) prevents the packets from reaching that port.'

 

 

 Long story short... can anyone tell me how to disable packet / port filtering? Thanks  :bananas:

Filtering is an extra feature beyond port forwarding. For added security you can allow/disallow certain programs. It should be under a setting called filtering probably in port forwarding sections. To enable it or deisable it is just a radio button ticked on/off toggle. As an example of what filtering is...http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/23675/~/enabling-port-forwarding%2Ffiltering-on-an-aircard-mobile-hotspot

@technonymous

 

I do have a 'Port Filtering' option, although 'Off' is selected. According to http://www.ipfingerprints.com/portscan.php, the port is still filtered though.

I'll edit this post with the information when I get free time ^_^, thanks

Maybe your software firewall is still blocking it?

I'm on a Mac and don't have any anti-virus software.
