Port Forwarding not Effective


#1

Hi,

I’ve been having some problems setting up a FiveM server to connect from my global IP address. I have (supposedly) opened port 30120 in my router, but according to canyouseeme.org, the port is still closed, and times out when I test it. I cannot see the server if I direct connect using my global address, but I can connect using localhost. I’ve tried setting a static IP address, adding exceptions for the port in my firewall, and adding directory exceptions in my antivirus, but it still refuses to connect without localhost. Is there anything else I can do to try and fix this?

#IPv4
Probably your internet provider is running you on a private address, I think of it like this: They are running you and their other customers on a big router to save IPv4 addresses
