port forwarding problem


ok so here's the scenario...

i am hosting a couple of Teamspeak servers for me and my friends! i have forwarded the correct ports (8767,8768,8769,8770)...i forwarded all of these in one section of the router configuration thing. (starting port: 8766, ending port: 8771) now i have 2 problems though...

1. sometimes my friends have trouble getting on their server! they either can't get on at the time or have to spam excessively in order to get a successful login...i was wondering what might be the problem here? does it have to do with forwarding each port seperately?

2. also i have tried to setup an FTP thing but when i forward port 21...nobody can still connect! my friend says he just gets an error and timed out connection!

also, is it healthy to forward and trigger the same port at the same time? b/c i do this with some of my ports particulary the teamspeak ones(8767-8770)

Does your ISP have those ports blocked? Is your upload saturated? Those are the only things I could think of. As for the FTP problem, is the FTP server started?

what router do you have?

you should be able to forward as many ports on as you like in theory.

Are you forwarding them as TCP. UDP or both?

When you setup the port forwarding, it was to static IP addresses?

I don't know anything about TeamSpeak but most applications use TCP.

Both of your IPs are static, correct? (the external ip, and your internal)

Have you changed to forwarding the correct ports? The ones listed in your first post were not right.

Go to Start > Control Panel > Network Connections (you may have to switch the "look" of the control panel) > Double click the network connection you have, and select the support tab. It should look like this. (look at attachment)

Post here what it says, and make sure the IP that is assigned to you is the IP forwarded in the router.
