    Hello, i was wondering how do i enable my ip address threw my firewall so people can join my gaming server that i have created at home, and by doing this will it make my internet vulnerable? because at the moment i keep getting these ICMP attack's with my firewall on so will it harm my internet if i enable my ip's?


    Please post back, i'm really keen to know.

    If you're behind a router, you will need to open ports on that then forward them to the correct LAN IP, the firewall should allow any gaming communication by asking you with popups to allow/deny. I've never had to manually make rules with ESS for hosting a server.
