Re: Unable to input a HYPHEN in portrange

With this particular router you will need to treat the port range field as the port field. You will just have to forward single ports at a time. Which will be fine. In case you need more reference see the link below.

Hope this helps!

Trying to port forward a web port, media port, and phone port to an ip address for security camersa

1. Select Port Forwarding/Port Triggering under Advanced in the main menu.

2. From the Service Name list, select the service or game that you will host on your network. If the service does not appear in the list, see the following section, "Adding a Custom Service."
3. In the corresponding Server IP Address fields, enter the last digit of the IP address of your

local computer that will provide this service.
4. To the right of Server IP Address, click Add. The service appears in the list in the screen
To define a service, game, or application that does not appear in the Service Name list, you must first determine which port number or range of numbers is used by the application. You can usually determine this information by contacting the publisher of the application or user groups or newsgroups. When you have the port number information, follow these steps:

Adding a Custom Service.
1. Select Port Forwarding/Port Triggering under Advanced in the main menu.
2. Click Add Service (see Figure 5-1 on page 5-7).The Ports-Custom Services screen displays.
3. In the Service Name field, enter a descriptive name.
4. In the Service Type field, select the protocol. If you are unsure, select TCP/UDP.
5. In the Starting Port field, enter the beginning port number.
• If the application uses only a single port, enter the same port number in the Ending Port
• If the application uses a range of ports, enter the ending port number of the range in the
Ending Port field.
6. In the Server IP Address field, enter the IP address of your local computer that will provide
this service.
7. Click Apply.
See the rest of the manual here.

Want to block UPD ports on router

Hi Try the below steps:

1. Log into the configuration page of your Linksys using a web browser by entering in the URL bar. Enter "admin" as both the username and the password. These are the default settings; if any of the settings have been changed, then enter the updated information.
2. Select "Port Range Forwarding" from under the "Applications & Gaming" tab on from the configuration page. Enter the name of the application in the "Application" field, and the starting and ending port numbers in the appropriate fields, as many applications use a range of consecutive numbers for the port number. If your application uses only one port number then input the same number in both the "Start" and the "End" fields.
3.Click on the "Save" button at the bottom of the window to save any changes you have made. Make sure your changes have taken effect by testing an application.

Hope this helps.

Opening a port on a Cellpipe 7130 router

pretty much the same as any other router
login => advanced setup => port range forwarding
field one (name)
field two (port to open)
field three (port to open)
field four (probably TCP/IP, but its 50/50 guess)
field five (local ip to route traffic using that port to)
and last drop down and select "enable"

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.

NetGear WGR826V has no clear port forwarding section in the setup, the mamnual is as clear as brick as to how do I forward a port on this brain dead router?

Forwarding Port – If you select 'Same as Incoming port' then all incoming traffic on specified Service is forwarded to LAN server without modifying Destination Port. – If you select 'Forward to another port range' then all incoming traffic received on the Service port (or range of ports) is forwarded to this port or range of ports of the LAN Server. – This field is disabled if action selected is "Block Always". – If you want to forward the traffic to a single port then enter port value in start port and leave finish port empty. – If you want to forward the traffic to range of ports then enter non zero value in finish port and make sure that service record attached to this rule has range of ports and range is equal to that of forwarding ports. – For example if you select Service as HTTP (TCP/80), LAN Server IP address as and Forwarding port as 8080 then all traffic coming from internet on – TCP/80 (HTTP) to this Router is redirected to TCP/8080 port of • WAN Users: These settings determine which packets are covered by the firewall rule, based on their source (WAN) IP address. Select the desired option: – Any All IP addresses are covered by this firewall rule. – Address range If this option is selected, you must enter the "Start" and "Finish" fields. – Single address Enter the required address in the "Start" fields. • Log: This determines whether packets covered by this firewall rule are logged. Select the desired action. – Never - never log traffic considered by this firewall rule, whether it matches or not. – Match - Log traffic only it matches this firewall rule. (The action is determined by this firewall rule.)
Ok well this is out of the manual, to me it seems straight forwards, but it is a brick too though, there is an example to help you, basically you tell it the Address of the PC, (Right click on NIC and get address) that you want ports to go to.. then ALLOW it, UN-disable actually.. in the tables.

I have a BEFSR41 Lynksis router and when i try to connect to xbox live it tells me my NAT type is Moderate and it should be Open. How do i change it to Open?

Xbox LIVE has default ports that needs to be forwarded on the router.

To forward the ports, access the setup page of the router. In your internet browser's address bar type

Leave the username blank and then the password is admin.

Go to the Applications & Gaming tab, click Port Range Forwarding.

In the application field, type XBOX LIVE.

Start End Protocol
53 53 Both
3074 3074 Both
80 80 TCP
88 88 UDP

In the IP address field, type the IP address of the XBOX. Check the enable button. Then save settings.

Good luck!
