Thank you for your post and welcome to the Rogers Community Forums! 😃
Coming from a fellow gamer I totally understand why you would want to have a server setup for Minecraft.
Have you tried the solution that is provided in Post 7 of this thread? If you have and are still experiencing issues keep us posted! Some of our Resident Experts may be able to provide assistance on this matter as well I will be sure to tag them in @Gdkitty, @Datalink, and @gp-se.
If there is anyone else on the forums who has experience with this issue feel free to chime in as well!
hope someone could help me. I am trying to set up a Minecraft server but I have not had any luck,
I got everything right but still can connect. is rogers blocking this feature is so I going to cancel all my Rogers services.
Please help if you can.
We would need a little more info. Generally, other than a few specific ports, Rogers doesnt block forwarding, etc.
I have 4 different ports for 4 different services, all forwarded, and working fine right now.
If you can provide a little more info, we can possibly help troubleshooting.
A) You are running the server on a PC. Do you have that PC set as a STATIC address? (not changing). otherwise each time you restart the PC it might get a new address, then the forwarding wont work.
B) You need to forward ports 19132 & 25565. Forward these to your IP address of the machine running the server. Both the same for internal and external port.
C) Make sure that none of it has been blocked on that machine... you may have to allow windows firewall to allow the minecraft server.
D) Connecting to it. You would need to let other people outside of your house connect via your routers EXTERNAL address. But for you to connect, you would need to access via that machines INTERNAL address, while your inside your house.
I'm also looking for assistance with forwarding ports for XBOX live.
My gateway is the Hitron CODA-4582 with an unlimited data plan.
I tried to follow the instructions on Portforward.com but like with most tutorials, the language is suited to those who are already in the know.
The next option was to pay up and use their Portfoward network utilities software but figured that there HAS to be someone who can put all of this stuff into layman's terms.
@Pottertons, give this a go. There are a couple of points to keep in mind at this point:
That should do it. One item to check is whether or not any of the ports change from game to game. Don’t know as I’m not a gamer.
This all seems so overwhelming. haha
Thanks for the very thorough info. I'll be sure to give this a go. Hopefully, I can complete this without making any unknown mistakes.
A couple additional questions...
1) Is it possible to turn this set up off or, revert everything back to how it was before making the changes?
2) Can the settings be backed up so that they can be conveniently applied whenever needed? (I don't game regularly, so 24hr exposure would not be needed)
2) When switching to IPv4, will the rest of my internet service be affected in any way?
