I'm trying to use port forwarding (51234) so that I can host a server on MapTool, but nothing I do seems to work.
I've added port 51234 as an exception both in my router's port forwarding settings, AND in Windows Defender Firewall, but I can't get anyone to connect; everyone gets a "timed out" message. I've been trying to use canyouseeme.org, which cannot see 51234 or in fact ANY ports that I put in. I've tried turning my firewall on and off, and that hasn't changed anything either.
I put in "netstat -ab" in my command prompts to bring up my ports, and 51234 does not even appear on the list. I also tried to put ports that were listed and were marked as "ESTABLISHED" or "LISTENING" into canyouseeme.org, and it couldn't see those either. I tried the same thing with Simple Port Tester by PcWinTech.com, which also returns every port I check as "failed."
I'm at the end of my rope, as I feel like I've done everything I need to in order to open this port, but none of my ports are being detected by every tool I try.
