1.Click the start button located on the bottom left of your screen.
2. Windows 7 and vista users: Type in CMD and click on the first result.
Windows XP or older users: Click on run and type in CMD. and type in ipconfig

3. Scroll all the way up and you should see default gateway, open up your internet browser and type in that address. HINT: THERE SHOULD BE NO .COM OR WWW.

4. Now we have to figure out the login information. This may vary from the brand of router you have. You may want to check with your parents to see if they have changed it. If they haven't or it is your own setup, look on this list www.phenoelit-us.org/dpl/dpl.html find the corresponding router brand and look at the default logins.

5. Once you've gotten into the router page, you should see something that says port forwarding, or something about games. Click on that link.

6. On the port forwarding page, click on add a custom service, or anything that seems to be similar to that as it may vary for different routers. Now you should be prompted for a service name, which can be whatever you want (ex. BukkitServer) a protocol (should be TCP/UDP, if you router only has a option for one of those at a time choose TCP, then after you add it go back and add one for UDP) a starting and ending port (can be whatever, should be 25565 for both) and a server IP address (go back to the CMD and use the IPv4 address on there) now click apply.

7. You should be done now! Go to www.whatismyip.com and you should be able to connect to your server with that IP address. If you can not, make sure you have your server running on your computer, and make sure any antivirus/firewalls are disabled.

If you have any questions or issues please post in the comments and I will respond asap.

When I do it(I use google chrome) It says "1**.***.*.1 is not avalible." anyone know why?
how do u do it for linksys cause my router dont work with that
can you tell me how to do it for verison plz
No need to give away any of your IP's , just use No-IP.org. should be better ;). And no need to disable firewall , worked for me without disabling !

No-IP doesn't protect your ip what so ever...

Thank you rouge. I have been searchin all over for this kind of forum.
I read some of the comments and some of those guys seem like dimwits
I made a server before. THAT'S HOW MY INTERNET WAS DOWN FOR MORE THAN 2 WEEKS. Guys if you want hackers and viruses in your computer do this, but I'm warning you. Trust me having a server is great and all but there is some serious deadly disadvantages ok, go with it if you want but just take this warning.
Eazy out!

This Is Unsafe
Exposing Your IPv4 Address Allows Hackers To Get Access To All Of Your Devices On Your Local Network,
Hackers can easily get access to your router (Verizon, Comcast and ect)They also can DDOS your router, forcing it to go down forever
Also if u disable your firewalll all port addresses and programs can be accessed publicy, without the security of firewall, basic ip addresses such as 192.168 are your local IPv4 And IPv6 addresses are accessed publicly by hackers, causing identity theft, DDOS, TCP flood attacks and hackers taking control of your computer

:)
This is very unsafe, who would turn off their firewall and expose their IP to tons of people.

This is how hackers get in.

That's not how hackers get in. The only thing this would open you up to, unless you already have a virus, would be a TCP flood attack.
Ever heard of DDoS?
Hmm...

Shutting down the firewall... the thing that keeps hackers out....
Giving the IP to connect into your computer... the gateway for hackers....

Hacker + IP + No Firewall = No More Computer

You people do realise the hooking up to an IP, say, for example, a Minecraft server, gives anyone and everyone also hooked up to the IP access to looking at to your IP. And it's extremely simple with certain Minecraft plugins.
I figured out a way to bypass my server through my firewall without turning it off.

On step 2, it says that my computer doesn't recognize "ipconfig" as an internal or external command. What in the world does the problem mean, and how do I fix it?

Failed to bind to port :(
I don't know the password for my router, and the website you gave us in the post doesn't have mine listed. What do I do?
When I do what you say,rouge when i get up to 3. I dont need to scroll up because there is no gateway. is something wrong?

Well my router doesnt have a selection for minecraft. But there is a pc anywhere (Incoming) thingy
What do i do .-.
Why not just use a vpn? wouldn't that be easier? I use hushtunnel ( www.hushtunnel.com ) and it seems to work fine and allows me to play in college too. There is a huge choice of vpns out there.

I just don't know my username and password to log into my router
I have everything set up properly but the problem is that I have a
[size=small]SMCD3GNV Router with Xfinity service, I have tried a load of ports and checked many forums online, but it turns out you have to do something special with something called a DMZ to find a port, because all ports for a [/size]
[size=small]SMCD3GNV are closed. I don't know what the problem is, I just cannot find a working port.[/size]
