Firewall and Port Management Print

  • 19

At MCProHosting, we provide a firewall and port opening solution to keep your server safe while allowing for the ability to manage open ports. This is useful for BungeeCord networks, certain plugins like Votifier, Dynmap, and Geyser that require an open port, and more!

To open a port manually:

1. Go on your server's control panel

2. On your server's control panel, on the left side, click "Firewall Management".

3. At the top right of the page, click "New Port Mapping".

4. Under "Destination Port", input the port specified by your plugin, BungeeCord, or other port that you need to be opened. Optionally switch the protocol, if required.

5. Once done, click "Create Port Mapping". That port will now be opened!

6. After creating the port, if you need to edit this at any time you can click the edit button next to that port to edit it.

 

 

 

You have now successfully set up an open port!

To open a port automatically:

1. Go on your server's control panel

2. On your server's control panel, on the left side, click "Firewall and Port Mapping".

3. On that page under "Easy Port Bindings", click on the specific option you need a port for. As an example, we're clicking "Dynmap".

 

 

 



4.
A new port mapping will now appear opening the default port for that specific option you selected.

 


5.
After creating the port, if you need to edit this port you can click the edit button next to that port to edit it.

 

 

You have now successfully set up an open port for that option you selected.

To reset all ports:

Sometimes you just need to start from scratch, or something goes wrong with your ports. It's very simple to reset!

1. Go on your server's control panel

2. On your server's control panel, on the left side, click "Firewall Management".

3. On the top right of the page, click "Reset Port Mappings"
