I'm trying to forward some ports because i want to stream games from my pc to an android device through an app called moonlight which requires portforwarding. I've been trying and searching for hours and I don't know what is wrong.

These are the required ports:
"The following ports must be forwarded through your router for streaming to work with the latest version of GeForce Experience:

and i attached an image of the ports i added on the router:

I don't know what is wrong, can anyone help.

I'm happy to provide any necessary information.

It looks like you entered the ports info correctly from what I can tell. However you also need to select what devices or IP addresses those porting features are going to be applicable to. There should be a place to input an IP address(s) to lock the Porting into. Whats the model of the wireless router?

You need to go the Virtual Server section to do Port Forwarding.

I don't know what is wrong. I made my ip static. I tried everything and it all seems fine. I also allowed these ports through the firewall, and still...

What IP are you setting on the PC and router? You don't need to block it out, internal IP's are not a security risk, they are not accessible from the internet without someone knowing your external IP.

Did you also allow those ports through the computer's firewall? Disable your Windows or third party Firewall for testing.

The IP i set on my router is my computer's ip, the one i saw in cmd when executing the command ipconfig /all. I'm sorry if this is not what your question ment, but i'm pretty new to these things.

I will try disabling them and comeback with the results.


Thank you very much

Make sure that IP isn't changing on you, you may want to set it statically or set a reservation in the router.

No, a VPN will not unblock them. If there is a block, and you can call and find out, then a business account may be a solution.

What does ShieldsUp report for those ports? What does it say for other ports such as 80, 433, or 21? Closed, Open, Stealth?
