Are you talking about forwarding a port on your router?

Yeah i think so, i have no clue on how to do port forwarding all i know is if your on a router or wireless and you want to host you have to port forward so you have a stable ip? Am i correct?

Okay, to forward the port, go to http://192.168.1.1 and sign in with the default username / password (ussually admin and admin). If that doesn't work, look for documentation for your router..

Then look around for port forwarding..

Ussually documentation for your router can be found online.

If you can't find it yourself, perhaps someone can find it for you.

What type of router do you have?
