Wait I think i'm getting it i know what you mean is it that when you start Servermania it will show the IP on there and then add that ip to something so the router can let the host go through

Going to try to explain this nice and simple... really should make an updated FAQ (current one is more than a bit outdated).

First you need to find your current network ip settings, and then 'force' them as defaults so your network IP doesn't magically change on you, rendering your port forwards null. There's hundreds of guides on the net.. http://portforward.com/networking/static-vista.htm

Seems you already found your router manual, so I'm guessing you can figure out how to read it. Login to the router management page (typically the ip address of the default gateway you should have looked up and configured above), then configure a port forward rule under Forwarding Rules->Special Ap for your server port to your now static private ip address.

Did You try the link I gave you in This Post

You don't need to worry about the nat warning from the server its harmless, also if you did install the Microsoft loopback Adapter, is that enabled along with your internet connection as well ?

Your router manual should at least tell you how to use its interface to forward any ports, so you need to setup a static ip on the server host pc (use the guide in my above link) and forward the necessary ports for a tm server to it (router manual).

Also try resetting the modem and router - switch them off then switch on the modem, wait for it to boot then switch on the router and try again.

I didn't quite understand that, you shouldn't need to reset the computer though - just the modem/router.

Just because there is only one pc hooked up to your router doesn't mean you aren't on a local area network. Also, the loopback adapter has absolutely nothing with forwarding ports (outside of a proper NAT/UPnP setup, which is nothing more than a security risk)-- all it does is suppress an error message of no real relevance. I've tried explaining it to you several times, so I'm ready to chalk it up to a lack of comprehensive abilities, if not just a sheer lack of intelligence. At this point I'd simply suggest you put your router into DMZ mode, which will just forward all data to your connected pc without any local networking (huge security hole, but oh well). In any case, good luck..

No point trying to help this guy any further... he's already linked the manual to his router, which has incredibly simple instructions on how to forward ports (which he hilariously suggested we read, instead of reading it himself). There's only so much 'hand-holding' that can be done until you just have to leave it up to them.
