Hello.. If you already have the port numbers needed and static IP on your computer, you can do the following steps to open them on your router:

1. connect a computer to the router wired.
2. Launch an internet browser and type in http://192.168.2.1. Use the user name and password that you have set for your router.
3. Click on the Firewall tab, then Port Forwarding
4. For the Protocol, specify if the port you will open is TCP or UDP.
5. Set the port numbers on both WAN and LAN port range then set the Static IP address on the textbox then click add. After doing that, check if you have an apply,save or ok button and click on that.

Here is the site for the user guide of your router.

If you do not know how to set a static IP on the computer, you can do the steps from this link. This depends on the operating system of the computer you are using. Make sure to set an IP address in the range of 192.168.2.x (x being a number from 2- 200).

If you are trying to access the DVR server from outside your network, you need to use port forward, in that way you will use your DVR client to connect to the router's public IP, the router will be forwarding the port the video system use to the computer, just configure the computer's IP in the router's port forwarding configuration.

I have a Buffalo WBMR-G54 ADSL Router. The local IP address of the router is 192.168.1.1. My Medion desktop computer connects connects to my Buffalo router using an Ethernet cable. I use the wireless...


> Zone Alarm free firewall and Avast antivirus have been installed on both computers

Your router is already acting as a "firewall" to block "unsolicited" traffic from reaching the computers on your LAN. So, unless you use Zone Alarm to block "outgoing" connections
(such as a computer-virus would try to make when "calling-home", there's little benefit
to using the Zone Alarm software.

> If I use Internet explorer to connect to http://myname.dyndns.org, Internet Explorer does connect successfully to the network. However, it invites me to enter the username and password for my Buffalo WBMR-G54 router - not for the storage drive.

While you are "forwarding" TCP port 21, you are not "forwarding" TCP port 80 (as used by the 'http://' protocol). So, when you connect from the Internet to your "public" IP-address, it is the router that responds, rather than one of your computers inside your LAN.

IMHO, it is "bad" that your router's web-interface is "exposed" to attacks from the Internet.
Either "forward" TCP port 80, or configure the router to use a _different_ port number for "remote management".

> If I enter the Router user name and password, that allows me to access the Router menus via the Internet, which confirms that my account at DynDns has translated the IP address successfully.

Correct. Hopefully, you're the only one who knows the correct username/password, and there is nobody that is doing "brute-force" attacks on your router, trying to login to "hijack" your router.

> if I use Internet Explorer or FileZilla to access ftp://myname.dyndns.org, I cannot connect to the router

Correct. The 'ftp://' protocol uses TCP port 21, which the router is "forwarding" to one of the computers on your LAN.

> or the storage drive - so I cannot access any of my files remotely.
> FileZilla reports -Status: Resolving address of bob1944.dyndns.org
> Status: Connecting to 78.144.xxx.xxx:21...
> Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message

So far, so good.

Is FileZilla expecting a "specific" content in that "welcome" message, or will "any" response be "close-enough" ?

On a computer on the Internet, open a command-line prompt:

Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Enter FTP bob1944.dyndns.org
Press Enter
Do you get a "connecting" message?
Do you get a "connected" message?
Do you see the "welcome" message?

Note that the FTP protocol usually uses _two_ ports for File Transfer:

* port 21 for "control" (sending/receiving commands/responses)
* a "random" port for "data" transfers (including directory-listings)

It's this "random" port that your router is not forwarding.

However, some FTP-clients (probably including FileZilla) and some FTP-servers
support "passive" mode, where both the "control" and the "data" connections "share" port 21.

So, configure FileZilla to use "passive" mode, and _hope_ that your FTP-server supports "passive" mode.

Unable to ftp from outside of the network. Went through all of the port forwarding setup. Still can't connect.


You need to setup a Port Forwarding / Virtual Server (FTP) in the router to forward port 21 (FTP default) to your FTP server's FTP port. You may need to setup a reserved IP address for the FTP server first in the router before the option comes up.

How to enable WAN IP in a DI-604 Router for 3 computers


"I wanna make the 2nd pc a server but it isn't accessible through the WAN ip. "

Well that explains everything. If you want to get to 192.168.0.102 from the internet, you need to tell the router where to send packets. You do this by going to the ADVANCED section and configuring Virtual Servers. For example: If you are setting up the computer at 102 as a ftp server, ftp uses port 21. The name would be FTP, private IP would be 192.168.0.102, Protocol is TCP, and the Private and Public ports would normally both be 21. Don't forget to Enable the rule.

What this does is tell the router that when ever a request comes in on port 21, it should forward it to 192.168.0.102. To access the external side of the router you need to go to 70.55.84.233 (according to the image you posted)

Ftp server


What is the name of the software? Is that an FTP software?
Anyway if you are using DX-E401 Router you can enable DMZ (demilitarized zone) to your PC.

1.access your router configuration page (default ip: 192.168.0.1)
2.go to advanced tab
3.select DMZ
4.select enable then type the ip address of your server pc
5.apply settings

after that have someone try to access the files in your pc.
if the software you installed is ftp software then have them access it by this

ftp://internet_ip

the "internet ip" is the ip address found in the STATUS TAB of your router under the WAN catergory.


If this software you mentioned is using any particular application ports, you will have to open those ports for your server PC.
In that case you will to configure VIRTUAL SERVER. It's the actual term used by dynex. for you to have a general idea how to configure your pc behind your router please go to this link

http://www.dynexproducts.com/skins/skin_1/Topics/Documents/DX-E401_Manual.pdf

Virtual server configuration is in pages 22-23. It has detailed explanation of the terms used.

Hope this helps!

Set up ftp server behind the router


you need to set port forwarding for the correct ports, the default port number is 21. so you need to forward port 21 for 192.168.1.50

then go to www.whatismyip.com

copy your ip and add" :21 " without the " " in to the address so it looks something like this: 85.76.240.1:21

now your friend should be able to login from internet explorer for examble after typeing ftp://yourip:21 or from my computer by typeing ftp://yourip:21 into the address bar.

if you need more assistance let me know. im here to help.
Also if you are intrested we can try remote assistance to solve the problem but I would like some compensation for my time with remote control.

Hello Just wondering If both are on the same work Group in the network settings. (Same Name) You probably did that already but if not give it a try and maybe your forwarding will resume and work properly. Hope so. Thanks

Sonicwall Pro 300 DMZ Problem


If you're within a network and try connecting to computers on it with the WAN public IP, it simply won't work - you must use the network IP. On an external Internet connection, it should connect fine to the public IP. If you have access to an external machine (remote desktop), or if you know of an FTP proxy, you can try it that way. I also believe http://www.webftp.co.uk/ a web based FTP client would act as somewhat of a proxy, you could try that with the public IP and see how you go.
