Here is a layout of what I have done to get my server public, maybe someone could see the error I have made/overlooked and know what I need to do to get this going. Anyone that could assist here, or maybe one step further on Team Viewer, I would be forever in your debt
1. Opened the following Ports on my router/modem.
BOTH TCP/UDB 80 - 80
BOTH TCP/UDB 3036 - 3036
BOTH TCP/UDB 3306 - 3306
BOTH TCP/UDB 3724 - 3724
BOTH TCP/UDB 3443 - 3443
BOTH TCP/UDB 6112 - 6112
BOTH TCP/UDB 7878 - 7878
BOTH TCP/UDB 6881 - 6999
BOTH TCP/UDB 8050 - 8050
BOTH TCP/UDB 8085 - 8085
BOTH TCP/UDB 8093 - 8093
BOTH TCP/UDB 8129 - 8129
2.Got a DNS xxxxExternal Ip, xxxxRealmlist
3. Edited my Host file<-----Have a feeling this may be where my problems arise.
# For example:
# 188.8.131.52 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 184.108.40.206 x.acme.com # x client host
174.91.xx.xxx(external Ip) xxxxxxxx.dyndns.org
4.Edited the Realmlist on my Auth DB to my External Ip address.
After completing all these steps I'm unable to login to the world server on my host or from another computer. The only way I can get on is if I have my DB realmlist set to 127.0.0.1 and my wow folder realmlist to 127.0.0.1. Additional information I'm running Windows Xp Home Edition 32 bit, and have my Windows Firewall turned off and have Norton Internet Security 2011, but even with all security options disabled, no luck. I am also using a 2Wire Gateway dual Modem/Router, provided by my ISP Bell, all the ports I have listed were opened there.
