Troubling allowing Firewall exceptions on MWS 2003

Postby hofdiggity » Mon Dec 08, 2008 9:32 pm

Hello,

I am with Snake & Snot's House of Fun, and I am trying to get the software to run on a fresh install of a Windows 2003 server from 1&1. I have properly included the excepption in windows firewall for pmavens server. The pokermavens.net is receiving data - http://74.208.133.186:8087/

But I am not having any luck connecting. It is running locally. I have tried to setup the forward ports, but I am having trouble on how to do this.

Can you point me in the right direction?

Thank you very much for your time and consideration.

I have a $29/mo. VPS account at 1and1. Do you have the same setup? As I recall, the only thing I did was shut down the default IIS web server because I'm using port 80. But since you're using port 8087, that shouldn't be a problem. Port forwarding is only a concern for home systems that pass through a router. That won't be an issue with your server. Are you sure that IP address is correct? You should get a default web page on port 80 if IIS is still running but I get no connection at all at http://74.208.133.186. Pinging that address produces no response either. You're probably going to need to talk the 1and1 support about that.

Yes Sir, I gave them a call, and they fixed the issue.

The only change the tech made was changing the local ip to the internet ip. He didn't have to forward ports or anything.

Thanks for the response.
