IP Address of computer I'm trying to host from: 10.0.0.7
Default Gateway: 10.0.0.1
I have Norton Internet Secruity
My Router is and SMCD3GNV
My internet provider is Comcast (Xfinity Service)
So, first things first, I downloaded the newest version of Craftbukkit for my server (that works with MC 1.2.5). After that, I went to "10.0.0.1" on my browser, logged in, and opened a port under the port forwarding area with these settings:
Service Name ------- Type ------- Starting Port ------- Ending Port ------- Server IP ------- Active
Looks legit to me. So then I started up my Craftbukkit Server on Port 25565. Before testing the server on MC, I went to canyouseeme.org to find out if my port was being blocked. It wasn't. It said "Your ISP is not blocking this Port (25565). Great! I went to MC, and joined "localhost" to test to see if my server was even working at all. It was.
So then, I tried to join by my external IP (or is it internal... not 10.0.0.7, the one that others shouldn't know). It wouldn't work. Sometimes on my server prompt it would say something like "10.0.0.7 lost connection". So then I thought maybe it was being blocked by my Anti Virus.
I went to Norton Internet Security, and under the Smart Fire Wall, to Advanced Settings, to General Rules, then I added a new "Rule" or exception to a port/program. I added my port (25565) and allowed it traffic to and from any computer to mine for this port.
Then I tried it again. Nothing. I'm seriously confused. Does anyone else have Xfinity with the SMC router I have? I'd like to know what you're doing. Or if anyone has Norton Internet security, is there more I need to do? I have even tried disabling to entire Norton program for a short time to test it.
