Firstly, I am not quite sure which port it is that allows people from around the world to connect to my computer(being the server). I'll need to know which port/ports they are. I have a server on my computer and I want people to connect. This is a gaming server. My router is blocking people from getting in. I tried the portforward website and I forwarded the port 80(HTTP), but I guess that would only work if my computer was a web server. So if you know specific ports for my purpose or maybe a good program to forward these ports also would be nice. ~Thanks
Do you have any documentation of your gaming server? In there, you should be able to find which port the server is using.
Maybe, your gaming server has a config file, in which you can set the port number.
From here, it is hard to tell which port an (for us) unknown game server is using.
What type of game is it? Also what type of router are you using? Depending on the game, there should be some sort of documentation on which port you'll need to open on your router in order for other people to connect to your server.
Ok. I found which ports the server is working on. Here they are.
