TCP Cannot accept WAN requests
Posted on 2004-04-03
I have a server and client (both written in C#/.net). When i run the server and do a netstat, I can see that the port is being listened too. When i attempt to access the server via the client from inside my network or on my local machine, it works perfectly. When i attempt to access it via wan-ipaddress:port, the server doesnt seem to be accepting any connections.
So essentially, i can connect inside my network but not outside. I am behind a router (but port forwarding is set correctly and firewall is disabled). Also, I have tried this while not behind a router and it still can only connect from the same machine that the server is running on.
