The four more numbers are the port number (I assume they are " :6346 ") which your computer uses to 'listen' to incoming datas. So they belong to the number you should type into the field for direct connection. In case that you have a dynamic IP, which means that your ISP randomly chooses one for you, you have to check again with 'ipconfig' to confirm your present number.
