Port forwarding

If you want to host a Pokémon3D server, you might want to forward a port on your computer in order to let people from the internet join your server.
@Malcolm Reynolds created a how-to guide on port forwarding:
How To Port Forward
1) Identify the make and model of your router and modem.

2) Go to http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/

3) Select your router and go through the appropriate steps on the website to setup port-forwarding for it.

TIP: Set up DHCP-reservation (sometimes called static IP reservation) on your router to reserve the internal (inside your network) I.P. for your computer.

4) Repeat this for your modem. (Skip this step if your router and modem are the same device)

TIP: Your modem cannot directly see your computer. Instead, the I.P. address you need to use when setting up port-forwarding inside your modem is the I.P. address that your modem assigned to your router. You can typically find this by trying to find a list of connected devices in the menu for your modem. It's probably going to be the only device connected to your modem.

5) Turn off your computer and unplug your modem and router.

6) Plug in your modem, wait 30 seconds, plug in your router, wait 30 seconds, turn on your computer.

7) Launch Pokemon3DServer.exe

8) Go to http://www.whatismyip.com/ to get your IP address and give that to your friends / other players to join your server.
