Is there any way of opening port 1802? I run a program called Fantasy Grounds which is a virtual tabletop. I need the port open so my players can connect to my game. Any suggestions?

AFAIK 1802 is not blocked. See this:

How did you set up the port forwading?
How are you testing it?

The program Fantasy Grounds has a test connection feature, which always fails when I run it. I tried opening the port through the modem but to be honest, I'm not sure if I'm doing it correctly.

It will be tough helping you unless you provide details about how you set up the port forwarding and how you ran your test. You have not answered these questions from my previous post.

Thanks xray, I figured it out. I had to use a VPN, but at least my friends can connect now.

That's one way to do it. The port forwarding should work as well. I have port forwarding working to access my security camera system.
