Hi, I've been trying to set up port forwarding on my router for the past couple of days with no luck.

What i've tried:

-Disabling the Windows firewall which is my only firewall
-Setting a static IP
-Reserving that IP and restarting my computer afterwards
-Setting that static IP in the DMZ
-Using a different port
-Testing all this with an open port tester with my Public IP

Any help would be greatly appreciated as this has been driving me nuts. Below is some information about my Computer, ISP, and Router.

Laptop: Asus FX505DV
WLAN Card: Realtek 8822CE
Modem/Router: Hitron CGN3U
ISP: TekSavvy

Generally when you have tried to use DMZ it is one of 2 things. Make sure you actually have the program active. Something must be on the port to respond to the scanner. The other very common cause is that you do not have a public IP address.

In your router you should be able to see what IP is assigned to the wan port. Compare this with the port that the scanner web sites say you are using. If they are different you have a private IP and port forwarding will never work.

Having the program open did the trick, seems so simple yet it went right over my head. Thanks man!
