I will be clear about it then.

192.168 is an internal range of addresses and only computers on your own network can see those addresses.

Port forward means only that someone connecting to your PUBLIC address through that port will be automatically forwarded to the server on that specific internal IP address.

For people to connect to you they still need to know your PUBLIC address. As discussed before, if you PUBLIC address is dynamic things won't work well. You have two options:

1.Get a STATIC IP address for your connection
2.Use a DYNAMIC DNS service provider to automatically create a servername and point to your IP address. Every time your IP address changes the DNS will change to point to that address.

For the record, you have been quite rude with an attitude "I know it all" when you don't. Learn from the others around and you grow. Don't learn and you will do stupid things.

Yeap I had doubt about the portforward tutorial because I knew 192.168 was private but I still Gave it a go . Umm I have a Dynamic dns . dgmaster.no-ip.org. It should work. Cheerz . I was trying to get a static ip because Gametracker doesnt accept static ip

saiPA: Try 192.168.1.181 in your internet browser n it will take you to our webserver. Try it.


I love this... it made me chuckle.

Hey dude, I really like that you're trying to share a server with your gaming buddies.
Networking is not an easy topic, and it gets even harder when you introduce the Internet to the equation.

Don't give up, and don't think that you're asking a silly question either, cause experts love to answer an easy question. Just don't act like you know it all, cause that's when the help dries up. :)

On networking...
I know it has been answered, but simply put there are public ip addresses, and there are private ip addresses.
The public ones are used by devices on the Internet. The private ones are for local area networks (LAN).
Private IP addresses can be used for your LAN, but they cant be used on the Internet. If an Internet device sees a private ip address, it'll just ignore it.

The private ip addresses are:
192.168.0.0 to 192.168.255.255
172.16.0.0 to 172.31.255.255
10.0.0.0 to 10.255.255.255

192.168.* addresses are pretty common in the home or small office.
172.16-31.* and 10.* addresses are more common in businesses.

Your router connects the computers in your LAN to Internet. When your router/modem connects, your ISP issues you 1 public IP address. Some ISPs give you the same IP address every time you connect (referred to as static IP address). Other ISPs give you a different IP address every time you connect (referred to as dynamic IP address).

Usually, some extra functionality comes with your router, called a network address translation (NAT). NAT shares the 1 public ip address with the many private ip addresses on your LAN, in order to allow everyone on your LAN to use the Internet. This all happens automatically, so you're probably not even aware NAT is occurring.

If you understand private ip addresses, and NAT, then many other networking concepts fall into place.
For example, why port forwarding is necessary.

Have fun.

freitasm: This is a private IP address, not public. I think you should seriously up your game (pun intended) if you want to provide a public server. This should include a bit more knowledge in networking, a bit more bandwidth available and other tidbits.


Im know what im doing . My private Ip is different . My last digits change for my public static ip. You can even try and then prove me wrong . Thank you.
I posted this after i checked it myself so you can check before you start proving people wrong



192.168 is not visible on the Internet. Learn about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_network



Try 192.168.1.181 in your internet browser n it will take you to our webserver. Try it.

Iused portforward.com's static ip guide to get mine


I seriously have to lol at this.

I'm 17 and know more than that.
