    Okay, so a mint Noob here again. :confused:

    I have been trying to set up port forwarding but I have not had any success. I have been searching the forums for a type of guide but I haven't been able to find any. Is there any aid I can get? I already went through the steps at https://portforward.com/asus/rt-ac68p/ and followed the guide by my router manufacturer. Can anyone help me navigate port forwarding? it would be greatly appreciated.

    I have an Asus RT-AC68P router, and no, I am not running any security suite software. Also im running windows 10 not Linux, I also already have the info from the settings area entered into the router settings. Is there anything else I should do? Does the router automatically build an exception for its own firewall?

    Sorry the .. made me presume you were running Mint.

    No, it does not, but the firewall on the router is unlikely the issues, wear as the Windows firewall most likely is the issue.

    Have you used a port detection site to ensure the port is indeed open?

    Yeah it always says: I could not see your service on 174.103.162.191 on port (10101)
    Reason: Connection timed out. does D20pro need to be running when I run that? also I suppose I could have set up the forward wrong.

    Yup, sounds that way. I'd double-check the IP of the machine doing the hosting and the port forward on the router.

    Ah I meant as in *mint condition* rofl. I will double check the settings.
    Can I post a screen shot to have someone else check over my check?

    Follow up question, does the computer that is hosting have to be a wired connection? in the diagram from the router's manufacturer its a wired connection but I was trying over wifi. does that matter?

    You can post a screenshot, sure...

    uhm, you -can- use wireless, though it suffers the things that a FPS game would on wireless (weak signal, dropped signal, packet loss etc)

    You'll see a lot more solid and reliable results using a wire connection.
