so basicly whenever im trying to open a or multiple ports it can be connected with every device connected to the LAN network but does'nt work with devices outside the network

here what I tried :

  • forward the port on the router's pannel
  • allow the port on the window's firewall
  • temporarily allow ALL ports on the window's firewall
  • setting the DMZ on the default gateway
  • trying to host the server on different machines
  • making the IP static (even thought it already is)

Not clear what you want to achieve. Do you need to access a remote PC from your LAN?

Port forwarding is by definition a technology/application for REMOTE connection, and port forwarding does not apply to what we call LAN.
