I have a similar problem to Shadow Z, in his original question.
My problem differs, however, since I have already followed the instructions to set up my MQWest modem for port forwarding. I also do not need Hamachi, since I'm already on the same LAN network as my brother. I've already tried everything suggested, before, but nothing works.
My main question is how do I check if Terraria can access data from the forwarded port, but I also want to know if there is anything else I could try. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
Random info, in case if any of it can help solve my problem.
Router IP: 192.168.0.1
Port Number: 7777
Modem Brand: MyQwest
Computer: Shuttle desktop, with Windows XP
Btother's Computer: Dell laptop, with Windows 10
We are both using bandwith, connected to the same router.
