[WNYLUG-Users] Port Forwarding

I have a Time Warner Internet connection with a Linksys WRT54G wireless
router.  (I switched it to HTTP and WPA and it works now.)

I want to get port forwarding to work.

I have an application that I use on port 5190.  When I hook the notebook
directly to the modem, the port is open, so there doesn't appear to be any
problem on the ISP end.

I went into the router and selected Applications and Gaming.  I set up a
rule: start 5190, end 5190, Both protocols, to 192.168.1.100 and another
rule for 5191 to 5191, both, to 192.168.1.101.

5190 times out and 5191 gets refused. (tested using www.canyouseeme.org)

ifconfig says wlan0 is at 192.168.1.101
I think it's at 101 instead of 100 because I had the notebook connected by
Ethernet cable just before I did this.

1) How do I fix this?

2) I would like the port to be open at whatever local ip address gets
assigned to my notebook.  I told the router to allow 4 connections, so do
I have to set up one rule for each ...100 to ...103?  The router didn't
seem to want to do that for 100 and 101.  It complained about port ranges
overlapping.  I don't want to have to look at the ip that gets assigned to
my notebook and then change what port I'm using because of that.

Is there a way to do this that doesn't involve too much rocket science?

3) Given that I do not have any vms running at the moment, why do vmnet1
and vmnet8 show up at all?  Is that normal?

I originally ran my Windows 7 vm using vmware player ad then converted it
to VirtualBox.  (Again, it's not running now.)

TIA

Joe
