Re: Port Forwarding

It is easier to do automatic port forwarding with BaUPnP.

The following example configures port mapping for FTP (port 21) and Telnet (port 23):

BaUPnP.exe 21 23

Re: Port Forwarding

Port forwarding is a method that allows you to run a server behind the router. Port Forwarding opens a specific port to a computer behind the router, allowing all Incoming Traffic on that port to be sent directly to that server. It should be used to setup servers behind the router, typically Port Triggering (Answer ID 344) is a better choice for non server applications (Such as instant messengers and game servers). Below is an example of how to setup Port Forwarding. For our example we will be setting an FTP Server and a Mail Server that uses SMTP and POP3. FTP uses ports: 20 and 21 SMTP uses port: 25 POP3 uses port: 110 Getting Started 1. You must set a static IP address on the server. If you're unsure of how to do this please go to Answer ID 534 for information on setting a static IP address in Windows. 2. Once the static IP address has been assigned please go to your desktop and double click on Internet Explorer (Located on the Start Menu in Windows XP) 3. Once "Internet Explorer" opens, please type the "Address Bar" and click GO 4. The "Enter Network Password" window will appear. Skip user name and type admin (admin is the default password) as the password, and click OK 5. This will bring up the routers "Setup" section. Look under "Domain Name" and check what version of the firmware you're using. 6. You will need to click on the Advanced tab to the very right. Once the "Advanced" tab comes up please go to the Forwarding tab. Firmware prior to 1.32 This will not work with firmware prior to 1.32

Port forwarding

In your router's setup menus, click Advanced Setup, then click NAT, then click Virtual Servers.

That's the port-forwarding configuration page for Primatel routers.

Port forwarding not working in ok firmware AGL6 or later

According to my very thorough testing some weeks ago, P-660-HW-D1 port forwarding is really very broken.

The worst thing is that not only does the port forwarding work properly, it lets packets to LAN addresses where they're not supposed to go. This means you're not safe behind LAN.

Firewalled or not, AGL.6 or AGL.7 shouldn't be used at all in my opinion, they're unsafe. When in routing mode, and having several LAN machines behind one Zyxel switch port (i.e. separate switch attached), I found that the port forwarding is completely broken.

I have contacted Zyxel Finland about this issue two weeks ago, and they initially thanked for the finding and said they're passing the issue onwards and investigate it.

The best current solution is to downgrade to (also very buggy) AGL.4.

Port fordwording is not working for Radmin port 4899

when you do port forwarding you must know or have a static ip of the device for the application. For example, if you want to forward port 3074 for your xbox live, you need to enter also the xbox ip address on the port forwarding page. Port forwarding is like opening a port on your firewall for that specific application. Make sure also that you have the latest firmware of the router.
