I'm a comp sci major, but have NO idea what this network error means:

'Independent Mapping, Independent Filter, random port, hairpin'

Searching this forum for hairpin returns nothing.

I did read whatever help I could find.  I have comcast internet, and I can access the router settings, just have no idea where the hairpin setting is, LOL.

Thanks in advance

here it is:

So the issue might be that the IP you are getting from your ISP is not really a public IP

some more information, might clarify what the error actually means:
