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://

Need 2 open NAT

If you have a firewall or network hardware, such as a router, you might need to make a configuration change in order for your Xbox 360 console to communicate with Xbox LIVE. This configuration change is sometimes called "opening ports" or "port forwarding."

Xbox LIVE requires the following ports to be open:  
  • Port 88 (UDP)
  • Port 3074 (UDP and TCP)
  • Port 53 (UDP and TCP)
  • Port 80 (TCP)
For Belkin router follow this steps

Configuring port forwarding

In order to configure this, you need to know: 

- The IP address of the computer or device to have the port forwarded to.

- The port numbers to be used and whether these are TCP or UDP ports

(Note: We recommend you use a computer that has a wired connection to the router.)

Setup steps:

  1. Open a Web Browser on the computer. Type in
  2. In the address bar of the Web Browser type Click Login in the upper right hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click submit.


  1. Click on Virtual Servers under Firewall in the menu on the left


  1. Enter the following information
    • Disable Firwall

    • Type the port(s) specified by the program manufacture for both of the Inbound port fields
    • Select TCP, UDP, or BOTH for the Type.
    • Private IP address: Enter the IP address of the computer you want grant access too.
    • Type the port(s) specified by the program manufacture for both of the Private port fields.


  1. Click the Apply Changes button

Exemple : Vous accueillez un web server sur un PC qui a l'IP address de LAN de et votre ISP bloque le port 80. Nommez le Virtual Server (par exemple : Web server) écrivez l'IP address de la machine sur votre LAN (par exemple : Entrez dans le port privé comme [80] Entrez dans le port public comme [8888] Choisissez le protocole (par exemple TCP). Assurez que le programme est placé à toujours Cliquez sur sauf pour ajouter les arrangements à la liste virtuelle de serveurs Répétez ces étapes pour chaque règle de Virtual Server que vous souhaitez s'ajouter. Après que la liste soit complète, clic sauf des arrangements au dessus de la page. Avec cette entrée de Virtual Server, tout le trafic sur Internet sur le port 8888 sera réorienté à votre web server interne sur le port 80 à l'IP address

Port forwarding

Hi Robert,

let's see if I can shine a little light on your confusion.
To the "port" business:
Ports are simply connection points for different softwares in a computer. You know that websites usually communicate on port 80. That means that port 80 has to be open in a firewall in order to get to a web page. If your port 80 in your firewall is closed - no communication is happening.
Let's say you host a webpage at home, but you don't want anyone to get there easily. You could choose another port (i.e. 801) and if you want to access the page from the road, you had to type "" and open that port on your router. If you now want to give access to everyone, but don't want to change your server settings, all you have to do is to re-firect the traffic in your router by saying: "Redirect incoming requests for port 80 to port 801." (This is the public port 80 to the LAN port 801.)

Does this make sense to you?

So...your game on the Wii usually uses ports 28910, 29900, 29901, 29920, 80, and 443. If none of the ports is used by another application, then public and LAN ports are identical (no redirect necessary.)

And here we go:
  1. Open a web browser like internet explorer or Firefox. Enter the IP address of your router in the address bar of your browser. By default the IP address should be set to
  2. You should see a box prompting you for your password. Enter your password now. By default your password is admin. Click the Log in button to log in to your router.
  3. Click the Firewall link.
  4. Select Disable from the Firewall Enable/Disable drop down box. Click the Apply button. Click the Virtual Servers link.
  5. Click the Add button.
  6. The Wii requires you to forward the 80,443,28910, 29900, 29901, and 29920. Go ahead and enter the settings into the Virtual Servers menu. It looks like this:

    IP Address: (your Wii IP)
    Protocol Type: TCP (to be safe: "TCP & UDP")
    LAN port: 80
    public port: 80
    Enable: (tick on)
  7. Repeat the "Add" command and put in all 6 ports.
  8. To open ALL UDP ports your range is 1 - 65535.
Don't forget to click "Save" when your done!!!

A couple more things:
  1. I would feel rather uncomfortable to open ALL UDP ports - it is like leaving your front door unlocked and every portscanner will find you wide open. But if you have to...
  2. To make sure that the IP address you entered for your Wii will stay always the same. you should edit the "DHCP Clients List". Look at your manual page 37/38 (if you don't have one, you can get it here.) This ensures that the ports are always forwarded to you Wii and not to your computer. (If you have questons about this - let me know.)
  3. And while you're on it: there is a new firmware out: version 2.06T13 from 2007. You can get it here.
    But ATTENTION!!! Little nasty line says:
    "Special Instructions: A reset back to factory default is necessary after firmware upgrade. You will need to reconfig after upgrade. Do not use previous config backup's after upgrade." - Make sure to upgrade BEFORE you change all the port settings etc. otherwise you will have ot do it again.
  4. There is a cool webpage to test if your port is open. Go and check it out:
Oof...So - I think I've got everything... in case I did forget something or it is not clear to you, just come back and leave a comment and we look at it.

Good luck and enjoy!

How configure router for port used with p2p software?

First, know what your computer's IP address. This should be the computer that has the P2P software installed. (How to do this? Go here

Then, open your Internet Explorer and type in on the address bar this should prompt you to login. Just type in admin for both the username and password.

Go to Advanced Setup > NAT > Virtual Servers

Click on Add then Make New One and use the name of your P2P software for the Server Name. Then your computer's IP address for the Server IP (which you have obtained when you did the first instruction).

Then for the rest of info required such as External & Internal Port Start and End and the Protocol, you may refer to your P2P software port configuration.

If you're not sure what it is, check the support website of your P2P software.

Hope this will help. Cheers x

Change NAT to open

The ports should be opened only in the router not in the, go to a working pc..

To allow traffic from the internet to enter your local network, you will need to open up ports or the router will block the request.

Because our routers use NAT (Network Address Translation), you can only open a specific port or ports to one computer at a time. For example: If you have 2 web servers on your network, you cannot open port 80 to both computers. You will need to configure 1 of the web servers to use port 81. Now you can open port 80 to the first computer and then open port 81 to the other computer.

  • Step 1 Open your web browser and enter the IP address of your D-Link router ( Enter username (admin) and your password (blank by default).

    Step 2 Click on the Advanced tab at the top and then click Virtual Server on the left side.

    Step 3 Check Enabled to activate entry.

    Step 4 Enter a name for your virtual server entry.

    Step 5 Next to Private IP, enter the IP address of the computer on your local network that you want to allow the incoming service to.
  • to check ip in your pc.. go to start menu click run.. type cmd and hit ok
  • in the black window enter ipconfig and hit enter, you will find the ip address

    Step 6 Choose Protocol Type - either TCP, UDP, or both. If you are not sure, select both.

    Step 7 Enter the port information next to Private Port and Public Port. The private and public ports are usually the same. The public port is the port seen from the WAN side, and the private port is the port being used by the application on the computer within your local network.

    Step 8 Enter the Schedule information.

    Step 9 Click Apply and then click Continue.
  • This would fix your problem..

    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.
