I am trying to forward ports from my desktop for various servers but cannot for the life of me get the ports to open (checked on http://www.canyouseeme.org/). Currently I have the Xfinity router/modem combo switched into bridge mode to allow a separate router to handle NAT. I'm not a networking genius by any means so can some one help me out. Thanks!

Have you verified that the Netgear is receiving the public IP address on the WAN port?

Remember that online port checking tools require a response from your server, so the application on that server must be running.

Wow okay I feel pretty stupid now. I booted up the server and ran the checker again and the ports are open. I didn't realize they required a server response. Thanks!
