    Are you looking to open them for a specific service (e.g. FTP, SMTP, POP/IMAP etc.)? Can you be more specific what ports you are looking to open and why?

Usable tcp and udp ports range from 1 to 65535. However you should not need to open any ports by default. Most routers include a stateful packet inspection (SPI) firewall. This is a fancy way of saying the router inspects the packet on it's way out to the internet when a computer on the inside of the firewall sends it out to the internet. The firewall will only allow connections from the internet on that TCP or UDP port if it returns from the original destination. For example, if you send a packet requesting the web page at cisco.com, the firewall will only allow traffic back into your network on TCP port 80 from the web server at cisco.com. If a packet from any other IP address tries to piggyback into your network through tcp port 80, the firewall will block it.

The only reason to open ports on your firewall is to allow a server inside your network to receive unsolicited traffic e.g. a web server inside your network may need TCP port 80 and 443 (HTTP and HTTPS) opened if you want to be able to access it from the internet. A mail server may need port 25 and 110 open for SMTP/POP e-mail. However, most home users do not host their own mail or web servers.

I have a P-660HW-D1 v2 zyxel router but on our Xbox the NAT is always strict. I've looked at a few online guides and everyone says to go to UPnP and click all the boxes. Well I did that and still no open...


follow this guide
http://howto.wired.com/wiki/Set_Up_Port_Forwarding_on_Your_Xbox_360
setup your xbox with a static ip address.
setup your router with the following ports forward to the ip address you gave your xbox
Since you've already assigned a specific address to your Xbox, you can now open up the individual ports of this address. According to Microsoft, the ports that require forwarding are UDP 88, UDP 3074, and TCP 3074. If your router requests a range, just be sure that the numbers entered span this range (i.e., 87-89 for the first port, 3073-3075 for the second, and so on).

How to set port forwarding?


Open a web browser like internet explorer or Netscape. Enter the ip address of your router in the address bar of your browser. By default the IP address should be set to 192.168.1.1.

You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now. By default both the username and password are blank. Click the Ok button to log in to your router.

Click the Firewall button near the top of the page. Use the Protocol drop down box to select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding. If you are forwarding a single port, enter that port number into the LAN port range, Left WAN port range and the Right WAN port range boxes. If you are forwarding a range of ports, enter the lowest number of that range into the LAN port range, Left WAN port range box. Then enter the highest number of that range into the Right WAN port range box. Enter the IP address to forward these ports to into the LAN IP Address box. If you are forwarding ports so you can run a program on your computer, you should enter your computer's ip address into that box. When you are finished, click the Add button.

When you're finished, click Save near the bottom of the screen to save your changes.

And that's it! You're done! Hope this helps.

Open ports


You will need to get the IP address from your computer that you want to open ports to. Step 1 Open your web browser and enter the IP address of your D-Link router (192.168.0.1). Enter username (admin) and your password (blank by default). Step 2 Click on the Advanced tab at the top and then click Firewall on the left side. Step 3 Click on Enabled and type in a name for the new rule. Step 4 Choose WAN as the Source and enter a range of IP addresses out on the internet that you would like this rule applied to. If you would like this rule to allow all internet users to be able to access these ports, then put an Asterisk in the first box and leave the second box empty. Step 5 Select LAN as the Destination and enter the IP address of the computer on your local network that you want to allow the incoming service to. This will not work with a range of IP addresses. Step 6 Enter the port or range of ports that are required to be open for the incoming service. Step 7 Select Always for the Schedule or specify a range of Day and time that you would like this rule to be active. Step 8 Click Apply and then click Continue. Because our routers use NAT (Network Address Translation), you can only open a specific port 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.
