Hello!


I have an error with my system. It's never happend before. This is what;
I can run a server (no-hamachi, portforwarded) with ease from my Windows 7 desktop; with my firewall turned to OFF. I have a dedicated server in my room, running the latest (11.04) version of Ubuntu linux. I got all of the .sh codes and all so when I run, it runs like a normal server. I have turned all firewalls off from Linux, and disabled my router (Thomson TG585v7) firewall aswell. I have portforwarded with port 7890 TCP and UDP AND 25565 on TCP and UDP. I have a no-ip, orangescapemc.no-ip.org:7890 but if I connect to my IP from www.cmyip.com it still does NOT work. I am not sure what is wrong. If you know the answer - please post it here. Thanks!



BEFORE POSTING, ALSO KNOW THAT...

The server runs via a TP-Link (a USB device that plugs in and that device allows me to scan for a router, as by itself the server does not have a wireless-function) - could that be the problem?

If it is in the same local network, an external address e.g your external ip will not work.

You will need to use the local ip of the server for all the computers within your network.

I presume your cmyip thing is a proxy or something? Because many NAT routers wont forward internal traffic using the port forwarding rules (such rules being intended to only translate WAN traffic onto the internal LAN).
