    Red face Blocked ports problem in hathways broadband.

    Greatings guys this is me Aman and i'm new to IB forum,I have a problem regarding internet and i'm sure that i will get desired solution from here.Thx in advance

    Guys this is my 2nd month on hathway broadband,i have 2mbps unlimited plan.I have no problems regarding speed or downloading.Last week me and some of my friends decided to make a gaming clan,So everything was going fine and i decided to host a server on my pc but when i started hosting it then some error keeps on popping out which says that your ports are blocked and then i called to hathway customer care to open my port then they say that you need to buy a lease line which will cost a extra 5,500rs,they said after getting lease line your all ports will be open.Then later when i talked to my friend who is currently using MTNL he said he didn't paid a single penny for getting his ports opened from mtnl.So now i'm clueless what to do seriously.

    I don't have router,actually there is a box in my neighborhood from which they provide connection to me and to other 3-4 of there customers through a cable.

    P.s- Pardon me for my bad english,i hope u got my point

    1) lease line : A leased line connects two locations for private voice and/or data telecommunication service. Not a dedicated cable, a leased line is actually a reserved circuit between two points. Leased lines can span short or long distances. They maintain a single open circuit at all times, as opposed to traditional telephone services that reuse the same lines for many different conversations through a process called "switching.

    A leased line is a private dedicated link. You are always guaranteed the full bandwidth of the link since it is reserved for you whether it is actually being used or not. A leased line does not in and of itself provide Internet access but links two sites together. However, one of those sites may be an ISP which effectively means you have Internet access albeit indirectly. Cost is very high compared to the low end consumer broadband packages but these are aimed more at large companies who require large amounts of dependable bandwidt


    your r on a cable network not DSL and in cable network opeing ports is much harder and yes u need a lease line for hosting game servers.... u can try getting yourself on DSL network..

    What kind of game server do you want to run? Do you have any server specs in mind and also how much bandwidth do you think would be used every month. I might be able to recomend a very cheap game server for you

    Mate as you can see in my post that the price of lease line is almost around Rs6000+Mothly plan charges and lolz if i tell my parents about buying this costly thing only for gaming then i'm 100% sure that they will kill me .

    Mate do you think buying a new router will help me change my ports manually by me.If its possible then i can buy a wifi router or something similar like that.

    You cannot open ports if your ISP have closed them. You can do whats called port forwarding and we have a few guides on our forum which you would need to find using the search function on how to do port forwarding. Let me know if you cant find it.

    Pardon me sir but it would be nice of you,if you provide me a working link of port forwarding.One more thing sir- Is it really possible to do port forwarding while your ports are blocked from ISP itself.

    P.S - Sorry for noob and same questions again and again.
