Then why do the admins suggest having your ports forwarded?

Are you sure he didn't do anything else?
You could verify by disabling the forwarding.

I walked him through it over Facetime and he also set a static IP while he was at it but later disabled that so it will be interesting to see if it still works after he power cycles his computer. I still can't host a game with him or a lot of other people in it. sometimes I can host but very rarely. I don't have access to my router or I would forward mine and see if that works.

 

 

Edit: and by disabled I mean he set it back to Dynamic IP


I told my computer to run mph.exe as admin but I dont know what else to do to make sure the firewall isn't blocking it. Any ideas?

What firewall are you running and what router do you have?

I think it's an Apple Airport thing and I'm three D-Link switches down the line from it. I got access to it for about 30 minutes one time to forward ports for my xbox but I don't know if I an get that access again.


I'm assuming built in firewall on the Apple device. As well as Windows Firewall

That's a lot of firewall and switches. I'm not sure what kind of NAT mode the Airport implements.
