(Control Panel\System and Security\Windows Firewall) e.) Inside this window click "Advanced Settings" at left sidebar f.) Will be opened Windows Firewall Window g.) Now click on "Inbound Rules" at left Sidebar, and then click on "New Rule" button at right sidebar.

h.) Select "Port", and click on Next Button

i.) Select "TCP", Select "Specific Ports", and enter: "5121, 6121, 6900" this is ports used by emulator (login, char, map servers)

And click on next button.

j.) Now select "Allow the Connection" (first option) and click on Next button.

Now again click next

k.) select name for your firewall Rule, and description, and finally click on "Finish"

At this step you opened: 6121, 5121, 6900 ports to internet. So you can now connect from your computer to your server.

I ran into another issue my data folder isn't there so I need to get/make a new one or am I missing something. Also, how do I launch the game to connect I do have the server running but I have no idea how to connect to the client as a player.
