I cant open port for Zhone 6211-I3-200 Router


Some times you will need to open the Logical Ports on the router.
These are the logical ports.
For this you will need to open the set up interface of the router.
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

I need to open my router ports


Hi,

Here are the steps to open ports for your playstation:

1. Connect a computer to the router using any one of the 4 available ports.
2. Open the browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari).
3. Access the router usually by typing 'http://192.168.0.1' or 'http://www.routerlogin.com' in the address bar.
4. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that the Username and Password are case sensitive).
5.Click on Advance settings (under setup) and choose port forwarding
6, Add a new port address,port number etc (It is the address of your Playstation and the port to be opened)...

The most common of these are TCP and UDP ports which are used to exchange data between computers and the Internet.
In order to use some games and features on PlayStation Network the following ports should be opened:
TCP: 80, 443, 5223, and Port Range 10070 - 10080
UDP: 3478, 3479, 3658, and 10070

This is how the port can be opened, for more information please refer the following link given below..

Dose this router work as a firewall switch?


It is not possible to close all the ports on the router.
you can open other ports.
by default port 80 is open on the router.
On the router there is no such setting to close the port.
