comment Why can I connect to my server using an internal IP and localhost, but not when I use my external IP?
@jeffreylin_ The process described above allows any EXTERNAL computer to access the single specified internal computer on the given port. You cannot map a single external port to multiple internal computers, but you can allow different external ports to point to different internal computers on the same ports.

+1 because it works and is probably easier, but I definitely wouldn't recommend it. You can turn DMZ on and off as needed to help mitigate the risks, but setting up port forwarding will be a better idea long term.

Yes, your public address is what your friends will type in to reach you. You also have a private(internal) address assigned to you by your router, probably in the 192.168.x.x range. That is what you need to have in the "private" box shown on your router config screenshot. You are in essence saying "if somebody talks to the router on port 25565, send them to the computer at 192.168.1.17 (or whatever)".

Since you can connect with localhost, it's a sign there's something up with your port forwarding setup. I notice in your screenshot you have the private IP set to 184.152.x.x -- typically the private IP would be set to your internal IP address, which would usually be something like 192.168.x.x (given your router is at 192.168.0.1). Are you sure you don't have your public/external IP typed in the private IP box?

comment What does paying get you in Star Trek Online?
Since there are per-day caps, don't we need to know how many days it would take to match buying in-game currency? By another post, best case scenario 8000/130 = ~62ZEN.. 3000Z (per end-game ship)/62Z (per day) = ~48days/ship. So best case scenario, a month and a half of 2-4 hour days for a single end-game ship. I'm not familiar with other aspects of the game (multiple ships? do ships become obsolete?) but hopefully these numbers will help others who are more familiar

Nobody's saying you can't play it and have fun without paying. They are saying that to compete at the highest levels, it is somewhere between extremely implausible and mechanically impossible for free players to be on a level playing field with paid players.

comment Is there any reason to keep basic dragons around?
I believe I recall reading that single-element dragons do better in the colosseum. I can't verify that this is the case, but maybe somebody else knows for sure?

comment What kind of gear should I choose, given my build orientation (STR, INT or DEX)?
Worth mentioning: an advantage of energy shield is that it regenerates on its own if you can go without being hit, and it regenerates quite quickly (both of which differentiate it from normal health). As I understand it, evasion makes it so you can avoid a couple hits, potentially gaining yourself time to have your ES refill on its own (without having to run away as much).
