I HAVE THE VERY SAME ROUTER AND WILL TELL YOU HOW I FORWARD THE GAME PORTS FOR MY SERVERS. IF YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH THE FORWARDING PAGE IN THE ROUTER ADVANCED SETUP, THEN YOU WILL HAVE NO PROBLEM DOING THIS. FOR EXAMPLE: JK2'S DEFAULT PORT IS 28070. UNDER THE EXT.PORT JUST PUT 28070 TO 28070. THIS WILL ALLOW ONLY REQUESTS FOR THAT PORT TO BE FORWARDED TO THE IP YOU HAVE CHOSEN. IF YOU ARE RUNNING A SERVER THEN YOU HAVE TO CHECK THE UPD PROTOCOL AND PUT A CHECK IN THE ENABLE BOX. THIS WILL GET YOU BROADCASTING YOUR GAME OVER THE INTERNET AND 28070 IS THE ONLY PORT OF ACCESS. TO PLAY A GAME ONLINE YOU HAVE TO DO NOTHING WITH THIS AT ALL AS I AM SURE YOU ALREADY KNOW. YOU CAN USE THIS METHOD ON ANY GAME OF YOUR CHOICE, JUST USED THE JK2 PORT NUMBER TO EXPLAIN IT. IF YOU HAVE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR I HAVE ANSWERED THE WRONG ONE, JUST POST A REPLY TO THIS THREAD AND I WILL TRY TO ASSIST YOU FURTHER.

UPC is the only protocol you need and I dont have anything in the customized app. Dont think you need it. You only have to forward if you are serving and UPC will do everything you need.
