Questions and Answers

I need to "Port forward" #5198 & #5199 in order to run EchoLink, an Amateur Radio VoIP application. I'm running WIN XP SP3 & outward packet tests are successful, but inward tests fail. Internet access is through smartphone Samsung Galaxy S-III (Android 4.3) hotspot on T-Mobile 4G network. Need help in finding a place to "open" required ports, i.e. 5198 & 5199. Any and all assistance is appreciated in advance?

Just make sure that your phone's WiFi is on. When you're in a location that provides free WiFi, your phone will pick up the signal and you can use WhatsApp, email, and Kik just like you normally would.

You can just you your home wireless or any WiFi service. Hotspots at coffee shops and hotels etc. Free WiFi is everywhere these days so it is a feasible option. Also you can share internet from you phone to create your own portable WiFi hotspot so your Tablet can have internet access that way too.

I was wondering if my Samsung Galaxy S3 can connect to the WiFi I set up on my Mac using my airport?

I setup my airport to share internet access. I set up a network name, password, the works. But, my Samsung Galaxy S3 says that the network is saved but not connected and I keep pressing the connect button on my device and it doesn't seem to be working.
