N600 WiFi Dual Band Gigabit Router
Set Up Port Forwarding to a Local Server
If your home network includes a server, you can allow certain types of incoming traffic to
reach the server. For example, you might want to make a local web server, FTP server, or
game server visible and available to the Internet.
The router can forward incoming traffic with specific protocols to computers on your local
network. You can specify the servers for applications and you can also specify a default DMZ
server to which the router forwards all other incoming protocols.
To forward specific incoming protocols:
1. Decide which type of service, application, or game you want to provide.
2. Find the local IP address of the computer on your network that will provide the service.
You can usually find this information by contacting the publisher of the application or user
groups or news groups.
The server computer must always use the same IP address. Assign the server computer
a reserved IP address. See Manage Reserved LAN IP Addresses on page 116.
3. Launch a web browser from a computer or wireless device that is connected to the network.
4. Type http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com.
A login screen displays.
5. Enter the router user name and password.
The user name is admin. The default password is password. The user name and
password are case-sensitive.
The BASIC Home screen displays.
6. Select ADVANCED > Advanced Setup > Port Forwarding/Port Triggering.
7. Leave the Port Forwarding radio button selected as the service type.
8. To add a service that is in the Service Name menu, do the following:
a. Select a service from the menu.
b. In the Server IP address field, enter the port number.
c. Click the Add button.
The service displays in the menu.
