Port Forwarding issue on BGW210

I am trying to open ports on the BGW210 on my residential fiber internet and cannot get the ports to open. For context in case it is needed, I am in a house and only use the ATT provided router. I followed the instructions on https://www.att.com/support/article/u-verse-high-speed-internet/KM1215101

The device is the name of the PC which will be running the server. After checking on canyouseeme while the server is running on the machine, I cannot see it. In addition any attempts to connect to the server fail.
Thinking it may be a fire wall issue on my end, I added blanket rules for the server machines firewalls that allow any traffic on that port inbound and outbound like this,
I have tried factory resetting the router both through the GUI accessed via internet browser and by holding the red reset button on the router for 20 seconds, and I still cannot seem to get this port to open. Any advice?

Did you change the Firewall Advanced setting as I mentioned just above your last post?

For Internet testing most hosted services just send ICMP test packets to your public IP address with the port number attached.

Example: 92.68.1.1:25565 where 92.68.1.1 would be your AT&T Public IP for your Fiber link and :25565 would be your port.

You need to do the same test but on a remote computer connecting to your Game Server and not on your Local LAN now that you verified that your server works fine on the LAN.

Dave,

It looks like changing those settings did the trick and remote computers were able to connect. Thank you for your help.
