Q: Solved: Port forwarding isue

I was trying to forward ports for some programs using a http://portforward.com guide.
Open a web browser like internet explorer or Netscape. Enter the ip address of your router in the address bar of your browser. By default the ip address should be set to to expand...

You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now. By default both the username and password are root. Click the Ok button to log in to your router. Click to expand...

...it says, but doesnt work, I did search a bit with google about it but found nothing certain.
The actuall question is: "How do I find my router's IP adress?[to get the router admin box]"

My router is a Lucent Technologies CELL-21A-BX-AR

Hi guys,

I have home network, and am using LinkSys WRT160Nv2 as my wired/ wireless router.

I have Linux server, and have setup FTP and HTTP on it, and want to connect to it. I am using DynDNS for connecting to my "domain" from outside the network. And here is where the problem is.

I can connect with my FTP Server from outside the network, and download my files. However, I cannot use the HTTP protocol. Now, it is possible that my ISP (COX) has blocked port 80, so I start using port 8080 (which is not blocked). When I do this, I can connect to the router, which means I have entered my home network. I have tried the built in port forwarding on the router itself, but nothing seems to work, and my router is the farthest I can connect, using HTTP, even when I can connect to my FTP server when I use FTP protocol.

Any advice/ suggestions would be appreciated.

I'm not sure if i'm posting this in the right spot. I figured this is a networking problem. So here is my situation, and what has brought me to your forums.

I have hosted a Minecraft server on my laptop before, but it has always sucked, due to it being a crappy laptop. But when i try and host it on my new computer, it wont go through.

You may say its because i haven't changed the ports to my new IP, but i did. Currently, if i open the ports to my laptop ** I can get people to join, and the Port checker says the port is open. But when i try and do the same thing for my new computer ** the port will never open and nobody can connect. I even tried Hamachi and that didn't work. And i also tried opening the ports for Hamachi, still nothing. But it all works on my laptop.

My new computer is hooked into a single Netgear WNR1000v2 through a wire, and my Laptop is wireless. I have tried turning off the firewall on my Computer and nothing. Not sure if i did it right though. The only setting for a firewall i can find on my router is turned off. I'm not saying its all off, but what i could find is. I know its probably nothing with the router seeing as my laptop can open the port fine, so i'm thinking it may be an issue with my computer. I have tried allowing the Port to be opened through the Windows Firewall Advanced options as well, to no avail.

I recently got my internet home for about a week and i noticed that i was unable to play any games that offered a online feature it just sticks at the loading screen for ever. So decided to go into my router to enable port forwarding/ port range forwarding and still nothing happened. I then did a port scan on my modem(Paradyne model no. 8381-A3-200) and a number of opened ports showed up 12 to be exact but not the port i wanted which is 9339. i then connected my router(wrt54g2 v1 {firmware:dd-wrt

{factory firmware does not work}) up and i did the same scan and 3 different ports showed up. my modem and router ip address are different modem is 172..... and router is 192...... i have tried the games on the same internet provided by the same isp and they worked fine they just wont on my internet.
I contacted my isp but they did nothing customer service is not a very common practice in my country so even if they are blocking 9339 they wont unblock it....is there a way to work around and get this port to work.
ps..they are the only isp in my country so i cant threaten to leave them if they dont fix it

the 172.x.x.x ip address is a public ip, meaning the outside ip, it is one that is allocated by the isp. the 192.x.x.x ip address is an internal ip, meaning it cannot be used outside an internal lan. the three ip ranges that cannot be used outside are 10.x.x.x, 192.168.x.x, and 172.16.x.x to You can read more about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_network.

A:Solved: Port Forwarding Dilemma

According to the Westell B90-327W Router/Modem router manual the factory default (after a reset) is Firewall Disabled (all traffic is forwarded).

But what exactly are you trying to port-forward and to what IP address?? If you are port-forwarding a port to a LAN IP address other than the LAN IP address of the PC you are running your diagnostics on, then little wonder you see nothing. More details would help folks with trouble-shooting for you, including:

info about the IP addresses on your LAN
the IP address of the diagnostics PC
the specific ports you are trying to port-forward
what is sitting at the end of the port-forward that you are expecting to respond to any incoming traffic on the specified port?
what are you using to show that your ports are open/closed? A port scanner that is reporting the port closed?
If you do have port-forwarding set up correctly on the router, and it is forwarding to a valid IP address on your LAN, and the PC is at that IP address, then the software firewall on the PC (be it Zone Alarm Pro, Windows Firewall, PC-Cillin 2006, whatever) also needs to be set-up to forward the port otherwise it will block it for the target IP address (i.e your PC).

You refer to using Safe Mode with Networking: but that's all a bit of a red-herring, nothing in the port-forwarding assignment in your router has anything to do with this.
Maybe the software firewalls are not running at this point, but otherwise it's not yielding too much useful information.

Hi there,

I was going thro' some of the postings on this forum as I'm currently faced with issues around port forwarding.

My intent is to have the ability of viewing my Axis207W over the internet.

Here's my setup -

1. WRT54GL running DD-WRT v24-sp2 connected to a Scientific-Atlanta modem.

2. Axis207W camera configured as follows for both ethernet and wireless connections to the camera -
Static IP -
Subnet Mask -
Default router (gateway) -
http port: 80
https port: 443
rtsp port: 554

3. Both the camera and the router are accessible wirelessly over the LAN

4. On the port forwarding tab of the router interface, I mapped port 80 of (camera) to port 90 (I've tried 9000 as well)

5. I pulled up the WAN IP (external IP) and entered http://xx.xx.xx.xx:90 on the address bar. Ended up getting 'IE cannot display the webpage'

6. Just to make sure that the issue had nothing to do with the camera, I forwarded port 80 of the Linksys router itself and mapped it to port 80 ( and entered

http://xx.xx.xx.xx:80 (external IP) to no avail (tried 8080 as well)

Hi all,
thank you for reading this post.

I need to forward a specific port to one of my pc on my home wireless network.

I have tried many things to no avail. including:
Set a static IP in network connections found via ipconfig.
Set port to forward to the static ip in router setup (
Disabled UPnP both in app and router.
Disabled DHCP server in router setup, switched to static ip mode.
Set exceptions in any sort of firewalls (windows, router, anti-virus)

however I still cannot get the "open port check tool" (http://www.canyouseeme.org/) to see the port I'm trying to forward, as a matter of fact, this tool cannot see any port I typed in so far, I haven't tried all 65535 though,

I use comcast broadband, and they claim to have no blocked ports on the ISP level.

my router is linksys WRT54G and I'm running XP SP2

to sum up, my question is: what is blocking my ports? how can I find out? what sites, tools, programs etc. can help narrow down the issue?

my goal is: to forward a port to one of my pc on my home wireless network.

p.s. the port I'm trying to forward is in the 45000 - 65535 range, so there should be no conflicts.

Thanks a bunch,

I am having problems with port forwarding on a router. I am trying to create a private Minecraft family server. I'm going with the default port of 25565. I went into the router and set it up to forward the port to a specific computer. I am using an AT&T Pace 3801HGV Router. We use AT&T U-verse. I know that AT&T allows for port forwarding because they have setup instructions on their website. With the MC server turned on, I went to a port testing site to see if it could tell me if my port was opened. I have gotten two different answers: the port is, either, closed or filtered.

I know enough about networking to be able to setup a router to do port forwarding without having to read the instructions on the AT&T website, just as long as they specify that they allow port forwarding on their network. As such, can anyone tell me why, despite me setting up the router the right way, I can't get an open status on my ports?

I am having trouble setting up the necessary Port Forwarding on my router for Age of Empires II. The instructions on portforward.com for my router say that there is not sufficient support to open all the 200+ ports needed for AoE2 as it seems a specific port range cannot be setup (Each port has to be set open separately). I've already set-up a static IP address and I could do with help with some form of workaround or alternate way to configure the port forwarding I need.

You can also try putting your computer that has AoE installed into the router's DMZ.

If it cannot forward enough ports, if it does not offer port range forwarding, or if DMZ is not an attractive solution (I do not blame you there!), there is nothing else that can be done. Consider using a different router.

I am putting together a proposal for a customer of mine and need a little advice.

He owns a small shopping center and wants to offer internet to his tenants. Though running CAT5 would be best he wants to keep costs way down. I plan on a very strong access point
and giving each tenant a wireless bridge pre-configured for the network.
I have used the product listed above as a bridge for my internet, it has been on for two months without any problems or needing to be reset (otherwise I wouldn't have tried taking on this project). The bridge can either be plugged directly into a system or into the tenants own wireless router. (the AP I am using will only be used for the bridges)

I am planning on using the AP's AP-Router mode for the simplest setup. However, though non of the tenants need it now I am concerned that one day they will need port forwarding for something specific. What would be the best cost effective method to handle this? I am assuming using an actual router would be a good way to configure this, but am concerned about multiple tenants needing the same port numbers.

I have worked with port forwarding many times for VoIP, gaming, ect but that was usually from a single gateway directly to a workstation. My concern would be that two routers on the network would need the same ports from the one gateway.

Forwarding Ports:

My LAN consists of:

2.) Gateway Solo 9300 running Windows XP (wireless DHCP)
3.) Ubuntu 6.06 Server (hard-wired - still DHCP - will be static once I get all else working - I just update the ip as needed)
I have forwarded ports, opened all firewalls, and still cannot seem to even ping my WAN IP (which is also assigned via DHCP, but I ensure I'm up-to-date). I've tried SSH tunnelling with Putty to no avail, TightVNC with no luck, and I set up my wireless router with :8080 and couldn't connect.

I've recently been checking the ports with the "Open Port Tool" at http://dyndns.com . All ports were Timed Out which they state, "indicates that traffic to that port is being actively blocked by either a firewall or your ISP."

I stumbled upon my DSL router's admin page, and this is the one hint I have come up with. After enabling remote administration on port 80 or 22 on my modem (and UNCHECKING the "Enable Firewall" box), I checked those ports again and they were opened.

Hi ppl, first post here at TSG!

After having no replies at other forums, I looked for an active tech support community where I could get some help on this much too common issue - port forwarding! I hope this might be the place!

I'm trying to open ports on my home wireless network.

I have a Linksys AM200 modem ( "RFC 1483 Briged" to a D-Link DIR655 ( router and a PPoE DSL connection.

Some Linksys configurations:

- Multiplexing LLC
- DHCP enabled: DHCP address range: /
- UPnP enabled
- NAT enabled

D-Link configurations:

- does PPoE
- DHCP enabled: DHCP IP address range
- IP reservation to my laptop:

I think everything is OK with port forwarding in the D-Link. Relying on some information I've read at another forum, what I think I'm not doing right is forwarding the ports to the WAN IP of the D-Link router in the Linksys! What worked for the user in that post doesn't seem to be working for me, but I guess it is just a question of finding the right numbers!

So, in D-Link's configuration page, my WAN IP usually rounds 89.180.XXX.XXX. This WAN is dynamically assigned by my ISP, so this isn't it! In the Linksys port forwarding menu, only 192.168.1.XXX IPs are accepted.

So, should I change D-Links network to 192.168.1 (right now, all IPs in D-Link are 192.168.0.XXX)? If so, should I take off bridging, do PPoE at the modem, set a 192.168.1.XXX static addre... Read more

I have jumped through (many) hoops and have done everything the support folks said but nothing has worked. I am using all compliant equipment for the following network model but can't get it to work. If somebody more versed in Port Forwarding and the like can help out please let me know. I have no administrative access to the "Verifone" router in this model, it is a Cisco 800 that is preconfigured with these settings. The router I am using is a Linksys WRT120N. If you need additional information please let me know and I will provide it.

Eh guys, I've been trying to read up on trying to do this for quite a while... I think I understand some of the basics, but honestly Im stumped. The way my configuration is set up is: my modem is connected to a vonage router with a blue cord... then a black cord is connected from the vonage router to a cisco e2000 router... now a white cord is connected from that router allllllll the way up through my basement floor to my computer...now I've tried going on and port fowarding.. and it can't be done... When I go on the status tab of the cisco router, I saw that my default ip or somethin like that was different... It was and I was like um ok.. so i put that in... and the vonage webscreen popped up, I finally got on it but Im not really sure what to even start doing. Please help.

A:Solved: Port forwarding with 2 routers

You could put the second router into the first router's DMZ, and then only have to do port forwarding on the second router.

Or, you'll only have to port forward on the first router if you connect and configure the second one as follows.

JohnWill's procedure (Aug. 30, 2008) for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address, for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink p... Read more

Hello all, I need some help here. I currently have 2 routers.

the first router is a trendnet, I have my modem connected directly to the WAN port of this router, and all four ports are taken up.

My second router is a linksys, I have a cable coming off of one of the ports on the trendnet router that connects to my linksys WAN port.

I want to set up a web server on a computer that is connected to the internet via one of the ports on the linksys router.

I have set up port forwarding on my linksys router to direct traffic on port 80 to my server, But I do not know how to direct traffic on port 80 to the right computer from the trendnet router.

could someone please explain to me how i should be setting up the routers, or if there is anything i can do from the current setup? thanks in advance.

I've looked everywhere and still can't get it to work. I have Vista and a Dell TrueMobile 2300. I've set up a static ip as it says here: http://portforward.com/networking/static-vista.htm I only entered one DNS server though.

I have a wireless router but I'm wired to it. In ipconfig under Ethernet adapter, I entered the physical address (there's a different physical address under Wireless LAN adapter, but I assume it's the ethernet one because I'm plugged in), and I put IPv4 in for the IP address, and I selected both for UDP and TCP. I also have UPnP and DMZ enabled. I also forwarded the ports in the firewall, and I've even tried it with the firewall off. I used sites like canyouseeme.org.

I'm forwarding a port so I can create a listen server in a Steam game. Another program's port is forwarded fine, and I didn't even need to manually forward it after enabling UPnP.

Any ideas? Thanks.

I am looking for a little guidance on proper configuration allowing me to access items on my network at home from the outside world.

I have 4 computers that I want to be able to remote desktop into.

I have 3 video devices(DVR and 2 IP cameras)that have web servers built-in.

I have a WRT54G router. I know how to do the port forwarding in it but i am not sure how to do the ports since i have multiple devices that should use the same port.

Any input would be great for clarification.

I'm getting ready to set up wireless for our laptops. I would like logged on users to be able to communicate with each other and the world by some messaging programs, e.g., aim, yahoo or others.

Since these programs act as a server, is this a port forwarding issue, and if so, how do I address it?

Ok. I've had this problem for a long time. I tried to fix it but I really can't understand alot of the terms that the guide used.
I have a router that my ISP provided, a XAVi X7722r+. The first port on it is used for internet. The rest are where the TV things hook up at. Have no idea what terms to use. But we have two tv's hooked up to it.
But in the first port, where the internet is at, we have another router hooked up, because we have three things that use internet and only one port. Its a wireless router, a Linksys WRT54G.
We have this computer, and another hooked up to it, using wires. And then the Wii uses a wireless connection.
I got kinda far in the process, but then I dunno what happened. Nothing worked.
So if someone would help, I'd really appreciate it.
If you need more information, just ask. Please.

After switching ISP recently, I can no longer get my computer to work with Wake On Lan.
I had it set up fine with the port forwarding of the old router, but can't work out the settings on the new one.. I know that this is more than likely going to be an extremely easy question to answer for anyone who knows much about networking, but I don't, and don't really know what I'm doing with it..

So, I've taken screenshots of the settings that worked for the old router, and a screeny of the settings page for the new router.. Can someone please tell me what I need to put in the new router's settings and where?

So, here are the old settings which worked:

Note that the appropriate entry is "iWOL."

And the new settings screen I need to fill in:
Again, I'm guessing this is a really simple question for anyone with any sort of knowledge of this stuff..

I have a Westell A 90.750015-07 which I use to connect an Internet Radio to the internet. With the firewall set at Medium security there are many stations I cannot pickup. I can if I turn off the firewall. So I want to set up port forwarding for the radio leaving the other computers covered by the firewall. I do not understand the Westell terminology. Please could you tell me what the Global Port Start, Global Port End and Base Host Port are.
The radio handbook tells me to open UDP and TCP ports 80 and 123, I can see how to do this. It also tells me to open DNS Port53 but I see nothing about DNS ports in the modem settings.
Is a simpler option DMZ (I think those are the intials)? But I cannot find that setting in the modem menus.

Hello everyone,

I recently set up three computers at my work behind a Linksys Instant Broadband EtherFast Cable/DSL Firewall Router (BEFSX41). I have disabled the DHCP and have assigned static IP addresses to all computers. All three systems need port forwarding (port 80), but, as I have found out, only one system can have the luxury (or so it seems). One system is a web server, the other serves as an on line catalog that is reached via web browser and the third is the administrator's computer. Is there any way to have port forwarding apply to all three systems?

I have a network hard drive that I would like to access from remote places other than home. My freecom drive instructions tell me that I have to cofigure my Orange router to forward to port 21. I have no idea what that means. I have gone through the options on my router and got to the stage where I can do this, but now am lost. Has anyone ever done this with an Orange Livebox router?
Many thanks.
