Port Forwarding Instructions


I would suggest setting a static IP on the NAS within the subnet you have. Then log into the ip for the modem and use the web interface from the modem to configure. Dependant on which area in the settings (either NAT or firewall configuration), Look for Virtual Servers option. You should then be able to set your port forwarding for what services you wish to use. Word of warning I would suggest also using the user creation function in the NAS so users will have to authenticate before gaining access. Many of the new NAS devices have the functionality to use Active Directory/LDAP for authentication.

Windows home server remote access - cant get it to work


It's probably not about RDP. I think we are talking about the homeserver remote access that allows you to up/download stuff to/from yourshares, run the server console or remote control a workstation in your homenetwork from outside (from the internet).

The whole procedure is a little complex. In short, you have to:
- start remote access in the WHS console (settings - remote access)
- create and configure a dyndns domain name (or something similar) to find your server from outside
- configure the user profiles to allow remote access. They need to have "strong" passwords.
- forward the port numbers 80, 443 and 4125 to the servers IP address on your internet router.
- forward the port 3389 too, in case you want to use the RDP protocol to access the servers remote desktop.

That should be it.
If you have several routers in your net, you have to forward the ports from the first one to the second and from there to the home server.

Since we don't know where exactly you are stuck, you should post a little more information.

Hope this helps.

Westell Modem will not connect to internet


Shut down your firewall. Hook your modem up directly to your computer. Hit the reset button on the modem and follow the instructions on the screen. You have reactivate the modem and verizon has there own program and it should start up automatically.

How do i conect my wii to the internet


First you'll need a compatible wireless router that can be found by going to the following site:
http://www.nintendowifi.com/
From there, select your country, which will then take you to the WiFi index page. On this page,
mouse over TECH SUPPORT at the top and from the menu that drops down, click on ROUTER INFO. Near
the top of the following page, under the words "I don't own a wireless router, help me find one!"
there is a "click here" link, which will finally take you to Nintendo's wireless router rating
page, which you can look through to either see if your router will work or if you don't have a
router, which one to get. For reference, if you live in North America, here is the router rating
page.
The following are pics I took of my TV when first setting up my Wii's internet connection...
From the wii home menu...

Go to Wii Options in the lower left.

Click on Wii Settings to the right.

From this first list, click the right arrow.

Now on page 2, click on Internet.

Then click Connection Settings.

From this list, click Connection 1.

Then, click Wireless Connection...

and then click Search for an Access Point.

It will briefly search for any access points and when this screen comes up, click OK.

The following will be a list of nearby access points. If the one you are looking for doesn't show
up, click Try again. Then, click the one you have access to...

When the following screen appears, click OK...

and OK again.

It will test the connection...

And if successful, the following will drop down. Click Yes to update Wii.

Sometimes the above screen is false, saying there is an update when there isn't and the following
will appear...

Now, back in Wii System Settings, click on WiiConnect24.

From the following list click WiiConnect24.

Click On and then Confirm to save your settings. This feature allows for updates to be seemlessly
sent to your Wii so you don't have to do the final step every time.

Ok, the final step, just as a way to make sure your Wii is up to date. Click the right arrow from
the 2nd page of Wii System Settings.

Click Wii System Update...

click yes...

it will test your connection for a few seconds...

an update screen may quickly come up and tell you there is an update (whether or not your Wii
actually needs one)

and the following screen will appear. Click Wii Menu to finish.

Now, some of you have gotten different errors and have had problems getting online. I'm guessing
many of these hassles come from the fact that hundreds if not thousands of new Wii owners are all
trying to, for example, post on the Wii Message Boards and browsing the Wii Shop, looking at and
downloading Virtual Console games, all at the same time. In probably a week or so, many of these
problems will disappear, so don't worry. if you require further assistance please let me know and i will be glad to assist you. -Midwest-tek

World of Warcraft


Sounds like you need to do some port forwarding.

World of Warcraft communicates on port 3724 with the TCP protocol. The patching process requires port 3724, 6112, and 6881-6999. Once again to download the patches for World of Warcraft you should forward the following ports.

3724 TCP6112 TCP6881-6999 TCP

If you can not forward ranges of ports and are only planning on having one computer playing WoW, just forward ports 3724 TCP and 6112 TCP. The 6881-6999 port range is mainly used where multiple computers on a network may be trying to play WoW at the same time.

Ventrilo: From their web site: Click on the "Port number" input box and enter the servers port number. The program will automatically display the default port number of 3784 but you can change this to what ever the server needs it to be.

So forward 3784 or the port number you chose.

http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Motorola/SBG900/SBG900index.htm for a walk through on how to do the forwarding.

Hope that helps!

Dual Routers?


Disable DHCP in the router. Connect the modem to a LAN jack on the router. You'll have 3 LAN ports. If you need more ports, buy a hub. (You can change the default IP address on the Linksys, but you can't forward through 2 NATs.)

Forwarding from seimens 5830 how to get access


Hi,
You havent suggested what site you are wanting to forward one of your routers ports too, most people make this request for torrent download and/or gaming experience/improvement. Either way you need to know what port the software you are wanting to open a port for is currently using so you can tell your router which port to allow unchecked access.

I use this very informative support website for port resource info, click this link and choose your router type, in your case select Speedstream-5450 which will be the same setup as the 5830

http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm

That should take you to this page

http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Siemens/Speedstream-5450/Speedstream-5450index.htm

Then select the software you are wanting to open the port for.IE: Utorrent or world of warcraft Etc... That will then open a detailed walkthrough on setting up rules for your routers port activity. You will need to follow the guide for each port you open, if the guide is not listed for the exact software you are using just read through the one supplied for Utorrent and change the port numbers to the ones you are using.
The software you are using should show you what port is in use at the time you are using it, some software may use a different port everytime you open the software or allow you to allocate a port permanently (which is not recommended safe internet practice especially if your ISP supplies your connection via a STATIC IP address, most use a DHCP allocated IP address)
Failing that you can find the port currently in use information using the command prompt- for winXP and Vista type c:/netstat-b for win2000 type c:/netstat-p Look for the software you are using it will be on the left hand side and look something like [Utorrent.exe] follow the line of info too the right and look for the 4-5 digit port number.

Wheeeew, Good Luck :0)
