Router blocking casino games and such.

3
Found 5th Apr 2007
Finally got the D-Link router up and running tonight but it seems the firewall on it will not let me open any gaming servers.

PartyGammon (backgammon) will not load and Paradise Poker will not load. It is definitely something to do with the router settings but as I am not clued up on these I am a bit stuck as to what to do to enable them.

Any ideas?

It is a D-Link DSL-G624T.

Lol funny, I only play games with a skill element, I have never put money into an online casino hall.

Backgammon is my game, I like poker also.

But am bored out of my skull as I can't get into any of the servers.

Yep, sounds like it's the firewall

The router provides firewall security using Stateful Packet Inspection … The router provides firewall security using Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) and hacker attack logging for Denial of Service (DoS) attack protection. SPI inspects the contents of all incoming packet headers before deciding what packets are allowed to pass through. Access control is provided with packet filtering based on port and source/destination MAC/IP addresses. With Virtual Server Mapping, only specific services on a local server, like web, FTP or games may be made accessible from the Internet, ensuring the rest of the machine remains protected from hackers. If necessary, any of the built-in LAN ports of the router can function as a DMZ port. VPN pass-through is provided to let mobile users securely access office files and mail from home.

I'd disable the firewall on the router - NAT provides all the protection you need. Otherwise, go to Advanced>Firewall>Firewall Configuration and set it to allow the traffic

Excellent stuff, now I am in, I just disabled all DOS and the other thing below it, not sure if I am protected though, I will throw in a software firewall just to be on the safe side.

Playing backgammon as I type.
