Here is what i got at 10 o'clock

i manually put the IP in for the 2nd pic. this was the second time i ran it so it looks like when you exit it is leaving the ports open.

When I hit send, it told me "An invalid IP address was specified." It was my internal IP that was sent...

Yeah, 'server offline' in that first pic. It's difficult to coordinate over forums with lots of time between postings - I have to leave the PC here idle while I wait for someone to maybe have a try with it. This is one of the reasons for wanting a forum, so I can enlist peoples help a bit easier and get them on IM.

Thanks for trying anyway.


Ok, here's a v2. It should now read your external IP (and bloody hell that's difficult with NAT being transparent!). The good thing about this is that it seems to solve all my IPv6 problems - with it all being external, it's all IPv4 for now - it'll be a few years before we all have to switch.


Open it up.
Check that it reads an IP on the left ( it is today). If it reads 'SERVER OFFLINE', then I've set it like that to stop you trying and trying when I haven't got the server running.
Check that your external IP is on the right, not an internal network IP. You can check with http://www.whatismyipaddress.com/ if you like.
Hit start
Type a message to replace 'TEST MESSAGE'
Hit send.
