I'm sure other people could look for that in the forums, but anyway, here you go:Normally
, it is UDP Port 3290
that is required to be forwarded. Why do I say 'normally'
? Well, because that's the theory; but in practice it wouldn't be the first time I'd see somebody on a different port for voice comms (generally 3291 or 3292).
In my case for example, the 'external' port I had to open for voice communications was UDP Port 12742. Weird, right? Well, from what I can understand, this happens because my ISP has a weird
tunneling service from IPv4 to IPv6 (or the other way round; can't really remember). So this is the result: to the outside everything happens through port 12742, but from the inside, everything happens through port 3292.
In order to find out which port you need to forward 'for the outside', enter this webpage
and change the domain for the one corresponding to whichever server you're connected to. Search for your callsign and after the (hidden) IP address, you'll see the port number which you use to communicate outside your LAN. This port is the one you should forward/map to port 3290 (3291, 3292) inside your LAN.
It looks more complicated than it really is.
If I am too bad explaining myself or you're too 'uninteligent' to understand it (it will probably be the first option, though), let me know down here and we'll see what we can do.
