    Hey I bought a new router today and it has been acting up since I bought it, my AIM software keeps signing me in / out every couple minutes.

    I contacted the manufacturer of the router (D-Link) (Model: DIR-615) and they stated it was in issue with Port Forwarding from my routers firewall that was blocking the AIM software. They then told me to contact AIM to find the forwarding ports and then they could help me with the issue.

    I tried contacting AIM but couldn't find a customer support number (could only find AOL Support for paid customers I believe) So I got on google and tried searching for the AIM Ports. I found a website that told me the port was 5190 (not sure if this is right).

    So I called the D-Link customer service number and were talking to them. They then guided me to my advanced tab and then port forwarding. Then they asked for my IP (I checked with whatismyip.com) I entered my IP in my IP Address section they then asked me if the port was a TCP or a UDP port. I was not sure because the website did not specify. I let them know this and they said they couldn't help until they knew which it was. I then asked if I could just enter the port number in both fields. The lady told me she never tried this and to give it a shot... so I did. Anyway the problem did not get fixed so I am here for help now. I am going to post a screenshot below of my settings for all you tech experts to look at maybe you can help me with the issue and get this problem fixed.

    (Kind of a big side note - for some reason I just checked on whatismyip.com and my IP is different from when I last checked, probably the issue but I just checked it after I wrote up the post, anyway I just switched the settings to the right IP. If this was the issue I will still need to know what kind of forwarding port (TCP/UDP) to use.)

    hey,

    in the ip address field you have to enter your local computer ip, not public one.

    Also you have to define 2 rules, tcp and udp.

    i'm attaching img, where i forworded remote desktop connection to my PC from dlink router.

    You have to do same.

    forgot to mention don't know if it matters or not but, I did what you recommended.

    first one I did for my public ip, set both tcp / udp for port 5190
    second one i did public ip, set tcp 5190 and udp 0
    third one i did public ip, set tcp 0 and udp 5190
    ===================================
    fourth one i did local ip (192.168.0.1) set both tcp / udp for port 5190
    fifth one i did local ip (192.168.0.1) set tcp 5190 and udp 0
    sixth one i did local ip (192.168.0.1) set tcp 0 and udp 5190
    ===================================

    all are checked and dlink customer service told me to use my regular ip address i believe because they told me to find it. (they told me local ip address to sign-in to settings even though I already knew it, then asked me what my ip was)

    hope this information helps, maybe I am using the wrong port, I am doing some testing with my other computer (will call alpha) and with my laptop (will call beta). So beta is the computer I noticed the problems on, it is directly connected to my router btw, anyway I am logged into beta and as soon as I sent the first message from alpha, beta got logged off. Then after I sent the first message from alpha replying back it signed me back on. Messages went back n forth for a couple messages then I waited a bit and sent a message from alpha and beta was kicked again.

    edit: nevermind settings didn't save now it is telling me there is a port conflict from this. would the port be tcp or udp, I will set one for local and for public, I guess I will try it on tcp for now and see how that works.
    edit 2: can't use local ip address it says so I guess I will just try with public ip.
    edit 3: settings 1-3 are all giving me either a tcp or a udp conflict depending on settings..
    edit 4: ok using ip from biagles post going to try on tcp / udp. port:5190 (sorry im all over the place this is confusing for me)

    try to set on both computers different port for your software, and forward them to related computer.
