    First, let's understand the setup
    Code:
    isp===modem----router----(1/more pc's)
    Port forwarding is done in the ROUTER where the NAT support allows multiple PCs to have Internet access.
    Typically, our modems only have ONE Ethernet output which is why we need the router in the first place.
    Now if you have a Modem with multiple RJ45 slots, then it has NAT also, and your port forwarding gets complicated.

    In addition, the machine at 192.168.1.50 needs a tweak to ALLOW IN TCP/UDP PORT 59014 FROM ANY.

    The User's Guide for that router is here
    So, please specify the make/model of the modem.

    The modem has only 1 slot but everytime I port forward an IP and tried to check it by using a PortForward checker it says that its blocked and cant ping my router....I already switched my IP to a Static done everything I could and its still blocked.

    Ok, your program MUST be running and the firewall needs to be adjusted like
    • ALLOW IN TCP/UDP PORT 59014 FROM ANY

    Yes, that can occur *IF* the program is not active
