Hi, thank you for looking my post, my english is not that good, but i will try to explain my question clear. I have a Linksys Etherfast Cable/DSL firewall Router(Model: BEFSX41), and I'm connecting internet through that router. My local ip is 192.168.1.100, and my actual is 68.XX.XX.XX. I did port forwarding to 7000, and my friend can use telnet 68.XX.XX.XX 7000, and it shows my 7000 is actual open, also i can use telnet 192.168.1.100 7000 to access that port, but why i cannot use telnet 68.XX.XX.XX 7000? how i can use my actual ip to access that port ? I hope you can understand my question. Thanks again.
