I'm trying to host a server for a game. I have done this several times before (on the same computer and same network), but now it just won't work. I can connect to the server through my IPv4, but not through my public IP.
I have had a similar issue before where it wouldn't work because I had my computer connected to a nest-WIFI point that was then connected to the primary point.
I have set up the port in the settings, I have set up an IP reservation and i have made sure that my computer is connected directly to my primary nest-point.
I'm not sure how WAN works, but it's set to DCHP and UPnP is disabled.

Hey @JustHans .
Check the settings on the modem. If the port forwarding worked previously and doesn't now due without anything changing in the port forwarding settings, then it is likely due to an ISP update.
Thanks for the reply @PatrickP_Viking
1: The ISP did actually refresh my public ip, however I did catch that before testing the server
2: As far as I know there has not been a change in the server settings (if that was what you meant). The server port is still the same and the game version has not changed (I also tested different versions).
3: IPv6 is disabled. I have tried the support chat. They said to change a couple settings and restarting the network, however that did not work
The funny thing is that I have not changed anything (on purpose). The last time I used the server (a couple months ago on the same computer and on the same game version) it worked fine.
