Hey guys.  I continue to build tech for Artemis 3, including development on Artemis SVS (soon to be named something better).

BUT I'm stymied by my inability to get my port forwarding set up.  I've done it on other hardware many times, but I've got a new cable modem and a new router, and it's not working. [frown]

My cable modem is a netgear cm1200.  My router is a ArcherC5400X.  My ISP is Spectrum in NE Ohio. 

I understand I have to log on to my router, and set up a "virtual server", and I've done that.  But nothing seems to be getting through.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Silly question but does Spectrum allow Port Forwarding? I know when I worked there we would have to set it up for some customers due to restrictions within the modem/router. This has been a number of years though so it may not apply. 

I'll look into your modem and reply with more information if I can find anything helpful.

You likely saw this link/guide.

Well, I just turned off my router and plugged my computer directly into the cable modem.

Then I repeated my test, and it worked!  I could run two copies of the game, and get them to connect using the public IP.

So I believe my problem isn't caused by Spectrum.  I think this test tells me that spectrum isn't blocking my ports.

That means my router isn't configured correctly.  :/

Weird.  When I re-attached my router, and got the internet working, and tested again, I notice that the reported public IP address is very different.  I'm trying to figure out if my public IP address is being reported incorrectly.

What method are you using to get your public IP address?
What happens if you try the IP address you get from the modem when youre connected through the router?

Also, what happens if you unplug the modem for a bit and then plug it back in IP address change? Some areas may be refreshing the IP addresses more often with more people working from hom or it could have just been bad timing.
