I am not very experienced in the networking field and I'm trying to get some simple servers up and running (mumble, minecraft, etc.) I know I need to get a static IP established and then I need to port forward the correct ports. However I wanted to be sure of what I am doing before I started. I was planning on following the steps in this guide to set up the static IP address. I wasn't sure exactly if this was all I needed to do. I am behind a Verizon modem and a Cisco router. When I tried to do this before I ran into trouble because I needed to forward the ports between both computers. Any advice and tips would be greatly appreciated.
