For two years now I've been trying to port forward. And I failed every time. I've tried everything. resetting. Using software to automate it. Disabling DHCP on either. Switching OS's. Switiching computers. Switching routers. And I just can't seem to make it work. However,
I seem to have finally found the issue. The ports are 'half-open'. They report to be 'stealthed'.
Now the site that told me this says that it's my firewall. However, my OS X firewall is completely disabled. Here is my router setup:
Wall socket => Modem / Router (yes it can do both) => Linksys router
I've also checked my Modem and Linksys and the firewalls are off there too. Any ideas? Please, I've been trying to do this for a hecka long time. Any help is greatly appreciated.
btw, if anyone needs me to post screenshots and such, you're more than welcome to ask.
