Default Help with forwarding ports

I can't make a server because i don't understand how to forward ports, no matter how many tutorials and things i use, I'm never able to make a server on the master server.

Did you look if anyone else posted something about this? Torgo once posted a very helpful and understoodable guide about how to forward them. The only reason why mine isn't forwarded's because:
1. I'm lazy (once it was because I didn't have the password and username for my router/gateway/whatever's that box downstairs that has several light bulbs with letters above) but we just switched it a few days ago to a better one, so I might be able to.
2. Violo scared me about how it makes me more exposable to viruses. o-o"

Some users think that this is what they need to forward their ports, and don't realize that it isn't part of the instructions. If you skip the advertisement though, you should be able to configure your router using the steps they give you.

Configuring any router follows similar steps.

1. The first step is to type your default gateway into your address bar. It is normally 192.168.1.1. If you see a screen asking for your username and password, then you typed the right thing and go to step 3. If not, go to step 2.
2. Here is how to find out your default gateway if it isn't 192.168.1.1. Click on Start, then click on run, then type in cmd. This will get you to the command prompt. Once you are in command prompt, type in ipconfig. It should look like the image below.


The thing in red is the number you are looking for. Type that into the browser.
3. You will have to figure out what your default password and username is. On Linksys routers its "admin" for both user and password. On Netgear Routers its "admin" for username and "password" for password. If it is neither of these are your router, then you can either find that out in your router manual or find it out on the port forward site (just ignore the PFconfig stuff and skip the advertisement.)

4.Look for a tab with a name like, "Port Forwarding" or "Applications and Gaming"
5. If your router asks you whether to open ports for TCP or UDP select UDP. Some routers offer a from port ___ to port ___, you would put 5029 on both.

6. The IP you want it forwarded to can be found using ipconfig. Click on Start, then click on run, then type in cmd. This will get you to the command prompt. Once you are in command prompt, type in ipconfig. It should look like the image below.


Look for the IP address and type that into the IP address that you want the ports to be forwarded.
Also, you can check the FAQ on srb2.org. If you do use portforward.com, BE SURE TO CLICK SKIP ADVERTISEMENT WHEN IT SAYS SOMETHING ABOUT PFconfig.

If all else fails use google or youtube. I prefer youtube because someone made a video that showed me step by step from his computer how to forward ports. Of course I don't remember it because I already forwarded my ports a while ago but I recommend it.
