Port Forwarding - HowTo


Post by qambil » 09 Jun 2016, 8:07 pm

A lot have people have issues configuring port forwarding on their router.
I would like to clarify that this is only done on routers.

Port forwarding is a very easy task and can be done using the following steps:
Open the administration panel of your modem. Usually the IP of your modem is" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; or you can try" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; if the other doesn’t work for you.

Enter username and password once prompted. The default login details are username: admin and password: admin or written on the back side of the router.

Once logged in you will see the following page:

Use the navigation on the left and click Advanced Setup.

Next click NAT, and by default Virtual Servers should be selected. If it is not click on Virtual Servers.

Click Add button to proceed with port forwarding.

Once you click Add, a new page asking for details will open:

You can select a service from the drop down or select Custom Service. In case you want Custom Service, just click on the radio button next to Custom Service.
Enter any name you want to give to this service in the input field next to the Custom Service.

Now write the IP address of the device on which the service is running.
For example if you are want to port forward you HD-Box, this will be the IP address of the HD-box. This will be internal ip which should look something like

In the External Port Start and External Port End enter the desired port.

Next select appropriate protocol. The available protocols are TCP or UDP or TCP/UDP.

Once you are done entering details press Apply/Save.

Check if port forwarding is successful by going to the link: http://ping.eu/port-chk/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

That's all Folks :D
