Hey there @nathan06, we would love to help you configure your gateway to accommodate a Minecraft server.


Here is a link to our support site for setting up Port Forwarding. Based on the screenshot you shared, it looks like you might have the Pace 5268AC model of gateway. If we are mistaken and you have another model, please select it from the dropdown. Some games may not always appear listed already. There is a way to add them through custom settings, however. We've recreated the steps for this process on the Pace 5268AC below:

  1. Go to your gateway settings by clicking on the previous link or typing in into a web browser
  2. Select Settings, then Firewall, and then ApplicationsPinholes and DMZ.
  3. If you get a warning message, restart your Wi-Fi gateway. Then, continue with these steps.
  4. Under the listed applications, select Add a new user-defined application.
  5. In Application Profile Name, enter the name of the application. 
  6. Select the Protocol.
  7. Enter the Port or Range you wish to open in the Port (or Range) From/To entry fields.
  8. Use the default protocol timeout settings in the Protocol Timeout entry field unless directed to do otherwise by the manufacturer. 
  9. Enter the default Map to Host Port. By default, the port will map to the same port you specify in the Port (or Range) From/To entry field. Leave this field blank unless directed to do so from the manufacturer or application.
  10. In Application Type, select the option that matches your application.
  11. Select Add to list
  12. When prompted, enter the Device Access Code found on your gateway and select Submit.

If you are missing any of the required information you may need to look up Minecraft's information in your region.


Please let us know if this information was helpful, and it would be our pleasure to answer any additional questions you have about our services.
