So I am trying to host an ARMA 3 server however need to port foward ports
However with the tp-link router I have no idea how to port forward other than get to the NAT Forwarding area.. Some pls help...
Thank you in advance....
Hi @RobertHonti . There's 3 things to do for port forwarding.
Give your server a fixed ip address on your home network (outside dynamic pool of router), eg. 192.168.1.9, so that the server is always the address in the forwarding rule.
Set up Dynamic DNS so you can find your home network from the internet, even when your public ip address changes. Create an account with DDNS provider (think of a name to call your network), then do the setup on your router.
In NAT Forwarding, select Virtual Servers. Use + to add rules.
Don't worry about Service Type.
External Port: 2302
Internal IP: the fixed ip address of the server
Internal Port: 2302
Repeat for each port and protocol combination.
