Windows 7 - Firewall - Port Forwarding


  • Hi,

    I am currently trying to set up port forwarding on my Son's computer to allow him to host a server for Minecraft.

    I have allowed the port on the router and created what I think to be the correct inbound rules within the firewall allowing access to port 25565 on both UDP/TCP. 

    When the firewall is off the server works fine but when I enable the firewall, with what I believe to be the correct inbound rules to allow access to port 25565 for Minecraft, the server stops being able to host.

    Any suggestions gratefully received.
