Re: Port forwarding

What is the manufacturer of your router so I can get a user guide and taylor the instructions if needed?

Generally I would statically address the device to be forwarded to. If your router address is and Subnet mask of and it's DHCP server controls address for 50 leases to then consider using the range - uniquely as static IP addresses. There are more starting at but let's ignore them for now. In the network adapter to recieve port forwarded content assign a static IP address based on the above as say with a subnet mask of and a default gateway of The DNS addresses should also be static however depending on your router there may be an option. Some routers allow their address to be entered as the DNS address and pass requests as appropriate to the DNS servers loaded in their lan configurations, otherwise you will enter your ISP supplied DNS addresses into the network configuration.

Now that we have established a stable IP address to forward the port to we need to tell the router everything it sees for port 5060 gets forwarded to IP Address port 8000. If detailed instructions are needed I will need to know the manufacturer and model of your router.

Please provide the additional information and any questions in a response to this problem and I will respond when available.

Port Forwarding Instructions

I would suggest setting a static IP on the NAS within the subnet you have. Then log into the ip for the modem and use the web interface from the modem to configure. Dependant on which area in the settings (either NAT or firewall configuration), Look for Virtual Servers option. You should then be able to set your port forwarding for what services you wish to use. Word of warning I would suggest also using the user creation function in the NAS so users will have to authenticate before gaining access. Many of the new NAS devices have the functionality to use Active Directory/LDAP for authentication.

In order to get to the page you need to port forward you need to know your default gateway.

Enter those into your web browser, if nothing comes up then go to Start. Then click run(or search if you have vista) type "cmd" then type in ipconfig

There is where you can see your default gateway. Enter that into you browser. I t might ask for a password, it's usually admin.

Also a lot of the port forwarding issues are due to your firewall settings. Make sure you add the ports to there as well.

Motorola SB5101 port forwarding

Try putting in the address box of a web browser. If the modem is provided by your ISP you might need to call them if that won't work.

World of Warcraft

Sounds like you need to do some port forwarding.

World of Warcraft communicates on port 3724 with the TCP protocol. The patching process requires port 3724, 6112, and 6881-6999. Once again to download the patches for World of Warcraft you should forward the following ports.

3724 TCP6112 TCP6881-6999 TCP

If you can not forward ranges of ports and are only planning on having one computer playing WoW, just forward ports 3724 TCP and 6112 TCP. The 6881-6999 port range is mainly used where multiple computers on a network may be trying to play WoW at the same time.

Ventrilo: From their web site: Click on the "Port number" input box and enter the servers port number. The program will automatically display the default port number of 3784 but you can change this to what ever the server needs it to be.

So forward 3784 or the port number you chose. for a walk through on how to do the forwarding.

Hope that helps!

Port forwording

ok port forward if any has router this is easy ill get too others in momment

routers port forwarding features type in ip address in internet explorer search bar at top
router ip's start like this 192. type the whole ip in
this will ask you for password and that usually is the word "password" or "admin" threw that you can set the router port forward by going down the list

now for comps with out routers
goto control panel
then network connections
right click on your connection
goto properties
goto advanced
goto settings
you will be directed to windows fire wall
goto exceptions add program or port you want to forward

basically port forwarding is a program that keeps 2 comps from having conflict with each other running the same program and helps in monitoring ports for intrussions
