[FONT=Verdana]Configuring Portforwarding on the Router[/FONT]
Note: some routers use "Virtual Server" instead of Portforward

[FONT=Verdana][FONT=Verdana]Locate the router that connects directly to your internet connection and get the make/model. Navigate to this site, then locate your router and click on the link:[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana][URL="http://www.portforward.com/routers.htm"]http://www.portforward.com/routers.htm[/URL][/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]On the next page locate the “Ventrilo Server” link and click it. Follow the directions for configuring your router.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]NOTE: You must also portforward 6100 UDP on the router and allow 6100 UDP thru your firewall software[/FONT]

It is a BEST practice to power off the router for at least 60 seconds. Verify the settings are correct after powering back on.

[FONT=Verdana]Note: some routers require separate entries for TCP and UDP as opposed to a setting for “Both”. Please try this configuration before contacting the Ventrilo forum. Also, make sure the routers firmware is up-to-date. Check the manufacturer’s website for updates.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]The ipaddress to portforward can be found using the “Ipconfig /all” command on the server PC. The port# is 3784.[/FONT]

x.x.x.x port 3784 TCP
x.x.x.x port 3784 UDP
x.x.x.x port 6100 UDP
(where x.x.x.x = the ipaddress of the pc running Ventrilo Server)

[FONT=Verdana]Test the Router Configuration[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Get your External Ipaddress using this link: [URL="http://www.ventrilo.com/myip.php"]http://www.ventrilo.com/myip.php[/URL][/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Test the router configuration using this link: [URL="http://ventrilo.com/status.php"]http://ventrilo.com/status.php[/URL] (enter your external ipaddress and port 3784)[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Note: if the status check doesn’t respond then try temporarily disabling all firewall/virus/spyware software. Also try disabling all unused LAN ports on the PC.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]If you need to contact the forum for further help then please provide the following screenshots:[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Ipconfig /all[/FONT]
