Windows 7: Portforwarding not working

02 Jul 2015   #31

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Kathy, sorry to hear that. However, I have a trick that we can try to bypass this restriction. It would involve 3 free services:
- VPN service: OpenVPN (free for 500MB/month):
- Dynamic DNS service: Free Dynamic DNS - Managed DNS - Managed Email - Domain Registration - No-IP (may not open in browser, try the newly installed VPN to reach, if that fail too we will see what to do if it is the case)
- DDNS updater for Windows: Since you won't be able to use router's ddns client, we will bypass router. Usually provided by DDNS service provider.

If you wish to give this a go, then:
- register with OpenVPN and download its client
- test the VPN
- if you can reach noip server, register a free account and download the ddns updater client
- when you test the individual services, we will see how to incorporate all involved (vpn, ddns, windows firewall etc)
You will use the VPN only when you want to connect from outside.

Create a manual System Restore point before installing the software.
