    I've already seen that website. It's excellent. I used it to configure my Airport Extreme. When I tried to do the same with my Speedstream modem, I couldn't do it. I entered my IP address in my browser but couldn't connect.
    Thanks


  • info9 Feb 09, 2009

    Thanks. I disconnected my router & was able to connect, so I now know its my Apple Airport Extreme router. I talked to Apple & they couldn't help. No real surprise there. I tried port 591 with no success. A friend who has set up several routers for Filemaker says it's always 5003.
    I'm feeling really stuck. Could the router be defective? My old Airport express never gave me any problems.

Port forwarding is a process that you set up on your router and is independent from your OS.
Go here, and select the router you are using. On the next page (after skipping that annoying ad) you will see a list for different software setup's. Depending on you router, you might find Filemaker in the list.
(I checked Linksys WRT54G, and found it.)
Filemaker Server and FileMaker Pro with TCP/IP are using port number 5003with both the UDP and TCP protocols when communicating via TCP/IP.
UDP is only used for the initial contact, all other TCP/IP communication is using TCP.

There is a good video description, which I highly recommend if you're new to this. You can find that here.

If you have more questions, come back here or head over to filemakertoday.com, which has an excellent forum and the guys know what they are talking about.

Good luck!

    I just checked my post and saw that I should have added that if you are using Filemaker for web publishing, you will use port 591.
    Port 5300 is the data port used by Filemaker Server.

    How did you try to connect to your Speedstream Router (which one are you using?)
    I found a user manual here, but don't know if that's your model.
    They say you have to use the following URL to connect to the web interface:http://speedstream

    Maybe this helps...

    Another way is to open a command prompt (WIN+R-key), typ"cmd", type "ipconfig" and see what your Default Gateway is. That is the IP address of your router you want to connect to.

    Maybe this helps...

    Port 5300 is correct. I just wanted to mention that the common server port is 80 and the WebCompanion port is 591.

    Did you forward port 80?

    And to add to the confusion...
    50003 for FileMaker 7 Server
    50006 for FileMaker 7 Server Helper

    Also - have a look here, maybe that shines some light on the mystery.

Port forwarding on Linksys SRW224G4P


Google took me straight to the manual. This is a Switch not a router so it operates in layer-2 (ethernet). Layer-2 ports are the interfaces on the back of the switch. You want a router that can do layer-3 TCP/IP port forwarding. Layer-3 ports are unsigned 16-bit integers associated with an IP address and a protocol.

How do i fix error 80701b23


80710B23 - PS3 Network is Down or PS3 Network is too busy to respond.

The port numbers for PlayStation®Network servers used for this are TCP: 80, 443, 5223 and UDP: 3478, 3479.

My guess is you need to reset your router. then you need to port forward the ports for playstation.
see below for port forwarding instructions

Once you open the set up interface of the router, you will be able to find the settings on the router where you can open the ports for the particular program.
If you are opening the ports for a special device in your network, then you must know the IP address of that device.
For example, wireless camera, DVR, X-box, Play station ...
You can choose the option PORT FORWARDING for a special device application.
If you just want to open the ports for all the network, then you can choose PORT TRIGGERING

For Linksys Router.

You have opened the set up interface of the router. You will see Application and Gaming TAB at the top.
If you click on that tab you will find different Sub tabs.
Click on Port Triggering => Here you can open the port numbers for the network.
Click On Port forwarding if you want to open the ports for a special device in the network.
Click Save settings once you open the ports on the router.

For D-link router


You have opened the set up interface of the router.
You will see Network settings in the left hand side panel of the page.
Click on Network settings and go to the Advanced TAB at the top.
Now you will find the option. Pot Forwarding in the left hand panel.
Here you can open the ports on the router.

BELKIN wireless router

You have opened the set up interface of the router.
Click on Virtual Servers under Firewall in the menu on the left
Click Enabled. Type a general description of the application i.e.. Remote Desktop. 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.Click the Apply Changes button.

NETGEAR Router.


You have opened the set up interface of the router.
Click on Port Triggering under Advanced menu.
Change the value of Port Triggering Timeout as 20 Click on Add Service. Specify a Unique/User Defined name under Service Name. Ex: Mails, VPN. Specify the Service User as Any (if all the computers in the network are port triggered or if a single computer on a network is port triggered specify the IP address of the computer). Select the Service Type of the port to be triggered
Ex: TCP . Specify the Trigger Port (The port to be triggered). Select the Connection Type of Inbound Connection. Specify the Starting and Ending Port for Inbound Connection. Click Apply to accept changes. Your router is now set up for port triggering..

I am trying to portforward azareus ip adress 192.168.0.1 dlink dir 165


Port-forwarding allows connections from the network, i.e., to TCP port #80 at the IP-address assigned to your router, to be "forwarded" (much like a switchboard operator at a university)
to any specific TCP port (but usually the identical port-number) on a SPECIFIC computer "inside" your network.

If your router is '192.168.0.1', then it probably will give-out IP-addresses like '192.168.0.100'
and '192.168.0.101', and '192.168.0.102' to the first 3 computers on your network.

So, "port-forwarding" is used to designate one of those 3 IP-addresses as the one to receive/process all the 'TCP port #80' traffic.

On the router's web-interface, on the "port-forwarding" page, just add an entry for 'TCP port #80'.

How do I open ports 500, 4500, 53, and 52428 on Dell TrueMobile 2300 wireless router. Need to open them for Verizon Network Extender


1.Open the router interface by checking the default gateway
2.Under FIREWALL, you can find an option that would say "Virtual Servers"
3.Enable these ports, along with their types(TCP/UDP/Both) and assign an IP address that your Verizon Network Extender is going get( you to set that manually on the verizon device)
Save the changes and the ports will get forwarded!
**Note: In this case, DMZ under FIREWALL will NOT work!

Trying to port forward requests to the IK-WB21A webcam. From inside the house it works great. From outside, port forwarding port 8001 to 80 and I get NO response. Tried tcpdump and there is no response...


What are you using to view the Camera? Is this the only IP camera you are viewing/.accessing on the network? If it is not, are you using different IPs in the non-DHCP pool.
Typically you do not have to set-up port forwarding to gain access to the camera within the network. Normally port forwarding is set-up when you are outside your network and need to gain access to different applications/devices in your network using the same static IP address.
Let say you have a camera ip on 192.168.1.20.
You can connect to the camera with your web browser inside your network with the IP 192.168.1.20 (obviously), but if you have the camera set up to only be triggered on a specific port (other than the browser's default 80) let's say 100, then you would enter 192.168.1.20:100.
If the only thing on your network is the camera that you want to access from outside. you would setup in your router to route all incoming requests from port 80 (which is the web browser default) to the IP of the camera. Sometimes routers ask for a range just enter 80 to 80.
If the camera is working on a different port like 8001 then you would port forward 8001 to 8001 to IP 192.168.1.20. You would enter in your web browser (off-site) your static IP 69.132.54.176:8001. But I would suggest if the camera is the only thing you will be trying to gain remote access to, then leave it at 80 and set up forwarding for port 80 to the IP.
That way you can set up a free DNS service and not worry about paying extra for a static.
