Open Ports
« on: October 30, 2005, 09:55:02 am »
Hi


Can anyone help me with Opening some ports to a machine on my network.

I have a WRT54G, and the DCE ROUTER, that provides all IP addresses.

I have opened up the ports on the DCE Router (Port Forward and Core Input)
and on the WRT, but I still am not reachable in Edonkey or Azerus, has anyone managed this - would you be able to provide me with any hints.

Thanks

You have to open "port forward" entries to the machine that you need the ports forwarded to. In your case, the forwarded port must have the same value as the target port.

Example:
your client expects connections on ports 12345 tcp and 6789 udp (saying that you configured it like this). the machine has IP 1.2.3.4 (you may have a problem here: you get a different IP each time)
in this case, you have to add the following two rules:
Protocol: tcp; Source ports: 12345 to 12345; Destination ports: 12345; Destination IP: 1.2.3.4; Rule type: Port Forward
Protocol: udp; Source ports: 6789 to 6789; Destination ports: 6789; Destination IP: 1.2.3.4; Rule type: Port Forward

*** WARNING ***
This seems to be a common mistake

If you have a router in front of your Core, and the Core is not your router, this will not work on its own. You'll need to configure your router instead.
