    Welcome ingmaster

    The External IP that Fantasy Grounds shows plus whatever the Router shows as its public IP.

    Where did 99.99.198.40 come from in your Firewall Rules?

    That first rule should I think be:
    Input Any 192.168.1.72/32 1802 1802 TCP Allow
    I think the second rule should be deleted

    You probably also need a port forward rule.

    99.99.198.40 is the External IP Adress shown in Fantasy Grounds.

    Either 192.168.1.72 or 192.168.1.254 is the IP Address for my computer or router.

    How would I go about setting up a port forwarding rule?

    Thanks for your help and patience.

    And what does the ROUTER say its external IP is?

    Port Forward can sometimes be called Gaming or Applications or something similar..

    I can run a successful Connection Test after setting up port1802 forwarding

    however....i still cannot join a game, or able to get other players to join a game i created + hosted

    ISP gave me a generic "we do not block P2P connections" message but i am taking it with a grain of salt

    WIll try setting router to Bridge mode tonight when i get home, but any other ideas on what could be causing the issue GIVEN that the Connection Test comes back successful?

    Thanks in advance! Love the program! Was working just fine on a different computer+ISP+router combination

    Welcome to the FG forums.

    1) You (the player) don't need port forwarding to connect to another GM's game. Only the GM needs port forwarding.
    2) In general, if you get a success, then as a GM you should be able to host OK.

    A few questions (sorry some of these might seem basic, but I need to cover them off):
    1) When you try to connect as a player to another GM, does that GM has his campaign up and running and waiting for players to connect? Do they have a "success" on the connection test? How are you connecting - alias or IP?
    2) When you host as a GM - do you have your campaign up and running fully - i.e. you see the FG desktop with all of your data loaded? How are your players trying to connect (IP or alias)? With FG running, campaign loaded and waiting for players to connect, go to https://canyouseeme.org/ enter port 1802 in "port to check" and click the "check port" button - what do you get in response?

    Hi Trenloe! Thanks for the quick response!

    Turns out my issue was that i was putting in the IP Alias as my username and the host password as the alias
    Somehow i got the boxes mixed up in my head when joining a game for the first time again vs rejoining



    anyways, all fixed now!
