Can't open specific ports on my Mac
Trying to open ports to allow hosting Killing Floor games, but no matter what I do, it doesn't want to open them.
The following ports are used by the game:
* Computer is assigned a static IP address (wired connection)
* Port Forwarding and Port Range forwarding have been configured
* Have tried DMZ to my Mac, no difference
* Mac OS X Firewall is disabled
* Router firewall is disabled
* Firewall On with the app on the allow list isn't making a difference
This web-based tool and Network Utility keep showing the required ports as "closed" even though I have set up port forwarding to my Mac's IP and there are no firewalls in place.
Here's the thing: if I enable something like Web Sharing (port 80) in Sharing, it opens and closes the port just fine, and those two utilities show the port's status properly.
But no matter what I do, firewall on or off, I can't get ports 7707-7717 and the others to become "open" on my Mac.

I think I narrowed this down to the router.
Plugging the modem into the computer directly- it works! Friends can join my game without an issue.
Puzzling, to say the least.
