Hey guys I am hosting an internet server and everytime i start the server up the port number changes to some random negative port any ideas why? The only thing i can think of is that i am on a network with a router, so other then that I have no ideas why, and if it is that then is there a way i can set the internet port to something so it would always be the same? This is something that really bothers me so please reply...... or else i might start doing this....... :micro:
Does nobody know how to fix this?
you need to open the right ports in the router. Its masking your ip so it will keep changing. I've got a vary similar problem i just havn't taken the time to fix it yet. someone who knows about routers can help you.
I have a router and I have the same kinda problem.
Thanks SocomPsycho except the only prob now is that I don't have access to setting the ports on the router so if anyone knows how to tell it not to mask the IP without having to modify the router prefrences I would be greatful. Thanks anyway.
