I’m using ZeroShell, but I have a question. I have a computer and I want to play a network game. Say my game requires that Ports 4512 and 3456 be opened. My Computer has fixed IP address, so I set up port forwarding of those ports from my Internet Network Interface to the same ports on my computers fixed IP. Simple and it works. I had a friend visit from out of town and throw me a curveball. Say he also wants to connect to my network, and then play this same game? How would I configure this? He suggested that I set up another set of routing rules to forward these same ports to his IP. I don’t think this will work. We were unable to get our game running on his machine for other reasons, but how would I go about setting this up in the future? Thanks.
You cannot forward the same port on 2 PCs in the local network. If a friend of yours visits you and you want to play the same game then you will have to switch to another port for your friend, for example 4513 and 3457.
