Port Forwarding Question

When entering the ports to open, should I enter the IP address of the admin computer connected to the router, or my other computer that has the games on it that I need to open the ports for?

Also, when entering a series of ports like "6881-6999", my router does not have a "start" and "end" column to enter the numbers. I just entered the series with a dash, no spaces, like the series I showed above (6881-6999). Is this correct? thanks

  1. You want to open the ports for your game computer. How you enter a sequence depends on your router. If it saves the settings with the dash in it with no errors then it will probably work.

    P.S. Funny that your games uses the same ports as bittorrent. :lol:
  2. I didn't know bittorrent uses ports. I need those ports opened for Blizzard games like World of Warcraft, Diablo III and Starcraft II.
