New TS Server user, very lost
Ok i've been reading messages boards and experimenting all night and i still can't seem to get anyone to connect to my server externally, but i can connect to it internally using my computer's IP address. I've tried everything i've read so far. Can anyone give me any other suggestions? I have Windows XP pro, connecting through a linksys BEFSR14 router, and a Dynamic IP address from my ISP

Everyone is havin the same prob.
I dont know how old this program is, but maybe it wasnt quite ready.
Its cool that its free, but just seems too problematic at this stage. Knowing how much trouble I was having, visitors who knew of my troubles, tried setting up servers, all had the same problem. The interface seem a bit peculiar as well. All the ideas are right, just funky.
I have just downloaded TeamTalk, and TeamSound. They both free, and appear to be very stripped down. But I sure havent seen any problems on their sites.
I will keep you posted.

aparently you are commenting on the topic without knowing the cause for these type of problems, thedrizzle?
These problems are (in more than 99% of all cases, and yes I have helped may people with this problem - so I should know) network related. Lets face it: If you have a firewall or a router, or anything in between you and the internet...then you are asking for trouble (no matter what service you wish to offer to the internet, this basicly expands to any server type application there is). Not that this trouble is overly hard to fix (basicly you have to setup your router/firewall to forward/allow packets), but it does require some basic network knowledge that many people that deal with TeamSpeak don't seem to have. If you know what an IP is, how data is communicated between your pc and the outside world (and back), have some understanding on how routers and firewall work, then there is nothing difficult waiting...
Basicly, if you don't know the stuff above you are bound to run into problems that will be hard to fix without fixing the lack of network knowledge.
So please, before you tell us that TeamSpeak is "problematic" or "not quite ready", or anything the like, make sure you know how to operate your network (just try and run any other server type application, you will meet the exact same network related problems).You think my answer is stupid ?

Myself and others keep stating our knowladge level.
Ive posted here already stating that if you are not a programer, or are not knowladgeable about these issues, then you are in trouble. Infact my first post states that "I am not an educated person".
In so many of the posts in which the ppl are complaining of these very same issues, there doesnt seem to be an ending post with an absolute solution.
You seem to know quite well, in advance that this program requires more technical knowladge than the average lay person. So why did you not state that up front, or in the product description?
"Must be profficient in networking".
So if your intent is to insult me and others here by claiming intellectual superiority by virtue of your knowladge of networking, it cannot work because we never claimed to be as smart as you. And you never told us we had to be. Therefore, the program isnt quite ready. It needs a PR person to clear these things up, while programers fix problems, and others write a step by step manual for "Dummies".
While I have never persued a career in your particular field, I have worked in commercial software production for some time.
So many ppl, at my server, trying to connect to servers, that other vistors have created,,...why are so many having the same problems, w/the client as well? Are they all idiots too? Or are they all ppl who were never informed that the program required the user to be proffesionally skilled.
I am sure that you will most certainly become angry when reading this and kick me out. But I am not trying to be insulting.
You however were.
Have a good day.
PS. We did do this.
1.Try to find an answer by searching the Web.
2.Try to find an answer by reading the manual.
3.Try to find an answer by reading a FAQ.
4.Try to find an answer by inspection or experimentation.
5.Try to find an answer by asking a skilled friend.
6. If you are a programmer, dont be rude to ppl by inferring superiority

I am a teamspeak helper and also a network "techician" so to speak. I do not work, but i just know a lot about them. I also know a lot about other programs too. But anyway, without getting off topic, Matt, please contact me on aim: cjwoolf2009 or email cjwoolf2009******.com.
I will help you get Port Forwarding done on your router, as this is the only way to get server programs, such as teamspeak, to work in the outside world. If you would please include the following information in your email and do the following things:
1) Your Operating System version
For windows 98-me go to Start, Run, and type in winipcfg Provide me with all ip address there.
For windows Xp, go to Start, Run, and type cmd, then type ipconfig
Please provide me with all the ip address listed there.
2) Your router and the model number etc, all information that you think i should know to help you better.
3) If possible please take some screenshots of going to your routers page. By going to internet explorer and typing, http://192.168.1.1
