We can't really help with port forwarding -- there are so many different routers out there (at least, tell us which router you are using).

I change my router settings by connecting to it in a web browser.

Just take something to write and write on, walk to the router and write down what you can read. Start with the normal text and short numbers. Then type it in google. At least that's how I would do it.

The router also named the modem, the thing given by your ISP, where you connect your PC to acces to the internet.

open ur browser and enter 192.168.0.1, 192.168.1.1, 192.168.2.1

And Forward a Port
to port 30000

Make sure its UDP

Better to open a command prompt (under Windows) and type IPCONFIG, then press enter. The gateway IP will most likely be the router you need to change. For example, mine is in the 172.25.x.x range.

Here are two threads, the first mentions port forwarding specifically:
