if so therin lies your problem.... when the router recives a packet it dousent know which machine to send it to,
choose a differnt port. set up forwarding for the second machine and chances are it will work
Well the other machine isn't on the network at the same time. Only one machine is on the network. But the 2 machines has the same configuration, so in my world it should be the same whether the one or another is attach to the network. I have tried several others machines also with the same configuration in the past and there was no problem in switching the computers. They all received data packets on 8080, from WAN side
The machine actually receives the data packets if they were send from inside the network.
So i'm very confused about this problem.
