    Port forwarding fails after each update

    Hi

    Any idea why my port forwarding would fail after each update. I've to fix it by deleting settings, retyping it, then rebooting router each time.

    Ater each what update?
    Fantasy Grounds? Windows? Antivirus? Router firmware? Router WAN IP? DHCP Address?

    Fantasy grounds classic, windows 10, norton, Wan IP 197.82.216.147, router is a D-link DSL-2750U and no clue what DHCP address is... but I tend to get port forwarding working after redoing everything

    Most likely cause is your router is periodically giving you a different DHCP address making the Port Forward rule invalid.
    If that is what is happening you can probably set your router to always give your PC the same DHCP address.

    If there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea to the wish list http://fg2app.idea.informer.com/

    Hi

    So I didn't reserve my DHCP, but instead factory reset my router (after messing with DHCP completely killed my internet connection), which got things to work, but now 2 weeks later, the connection is failing again.
    What is in in the portforwarding setting, that I need to change, to reflect the DHCP change every 2 weeks?


    Regards and thanks in advance

    UPDATE: I can't reserve my DHCP, ISP won't allow it

    Your DHCP address is on the LAN side - your ISP has no control of it - you do.

    Did you try the link Zacc sent you to?
