Re: need to change server address???

You have set an unusuall ip address of 192.168.11.**, normally 192.168.1.* or 192.168.2.* is used. You are better off letting your router assign ip addresses by enabling DHCP. Go to your network cards properties and enable obtain ip address automatically. Restart you pc so as to find the ip adresses from the router. When they are assigned you will then be allowed to open the required port on your pc's IP address, but obviously 192.168.11.** is not an allowed address.

How to setup a virtual server on router

Virtual Server, also referred to as Port forwarding or port mapping can be setup with the router.

The setup of the virtual server depends on what you want to setup.

Virtual server is used to allow computers not on your internal network or computers on the internet to access a resource or service on the internal network.

For example:

Say you have an FTP on your internal network that you want people on the internet to access. To set that up go to the virtual server screen on the router and specify the IP address of the computer on the internal network that has the FTP server on it. The private port that you want to specify would be 21 because port 21 is FTP. The public port could be any number you want it to be, for ease of explanation lets just say it is also 21, that is the port the public would use to access the machine. For a computer on the internet to access the FTP server on the internal machine they would open up a web browser and type FTP://(WAN IP ADDRESS, found on main status page of router screen):21.

A better example would be FTP://

Virtual Server / Port Forwarding does not work from within the Local Network

When you use port forwarding in Virtual Servers and try to test it from within the local network, it may fail. When for example, port 80 is forwarded to a web server in the local network, you may get the router's home page instead of the web server's one or you may get nothing at all. When you try to use the server from outside the local network it will work fine though.

This can happen when you try to access the router's WAN IP address from within the local network. In order for port forwarding to work from within the local network, the router needs to support a feature called NAT loopback. This is not a part of the specification of Belkin routers and modem-routers, so most of them will not have the feature, and if a router does have it, it is not supported.

In order to use the server from within the LAN, you can address it by its internal LAN IP address (e.g.

If the WAN IP address has a DNS host name associated with it, such as, and you need to use that name to connect to the server, you can do so by associating the name to the local IP address in the hosts file (a file called hosts with no extension). This file lists IP addresses and host names and is used before actual DNS lookups are done. You can add lines to the hosts file using a text editor like Notepad on Windows. The lines look like: # comment

The lines contain an IP address and one or more host names separated by white space. Anything that follows a hash sign is a comment and will be ignored. You will need to change the hosts file on all machines in the LAN that need access to the server.

On Windows, the hosts file can be found in C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\Etc on Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7, in C:\WinNT\System32\Drivers\Etc on Windows 2000, and in C:\Windows on Windows 98 and ME. You need to have administrator rights to edit the file; on Windows Vista and Windows 7 you need to run Notepad as administrator.

Unable to ftp from outside of the network. Went through all of the port forwarding setup. Still can't connect.

You need to setup a Port Forwarding / Virtual Server (FTP) in the router to forward port 21 (FTP default) to your FTP server's FTP port. You may need to setup a reserved IP address for the FTP server first in the router before the option comes up.

Configure the firewall

You can use the Virtual Server to forward an individual port to one of your computers. You cannot forward the same port to multiple computers. In order to configure the Virtual Server you need to know the IP address of the computer that needs the port opened and the service port number. The links below will help you find the IP address of your machine. If you don?t know which port needs to be opened, try checking the software manufacture?s support website for information on use behind firewall. Configuring the Virtual Server: Step 1 Access the device configuration by entering in your web browser. Login with your username and password. The default username is admin and the password is blank. Step 2a If the port you need to forward is a common port, it will be under the predefined virtual server list at the bottom of the page. Click the pad and paper icon next to the virtual server entry you want to use. The Protocol Type and Service Port fields are preconfigured. Click the Enable radio button to use the virtual server. Enter the private IP address of the computer that will use the service port. Configure the Schedule as needed, then Apply your settings. Step 2b If the port you need to forward is not listed under the predefined virtual server list at the bottom of the page, you can create a new entry for your application. Click the Enable radio button to use the virtual server. Give your virtual server a name. Next, enter the private IP address of the computer that will use the service port. Then, select the Protocol Type and enter the Service Port. If you don?t know how to use Private and Public port assignment, then just enter the same port number in both fields. Configure the Schedule as needed and Apply your settings.
