Cisco :: Not Enough Port Fields In Port Forwarding For Linksys E4200
Jul 16, 2011
I have always used netgear routers in the past. After a series of issues regarding configurations not working correctly I invested in what appeared to be a semi pro router, the cisco linksys e4200.
I have a centralized server which I use to access a mass of different services such as mail, dns, VPN, FTP, Kerberos, http and many more. While I am not a massive networking ****, this server setup is like my garage project. To access these services externally to my LAN as far as I understand I would need to configure port forwarding for each service to my server. Unfortunately the control panel for the linksys E4200 only offers about 15 custom port fields for forwarding, and some documentation I have read shows that with it's basic install my server could be using up to 60 ports at once.
Is this router just not suitable for this sort of network. If so I will be very disappointed because I have spent a quarter of the price on netgear routers with more control than this.
I use modem and router to connect to the internet.When I connect my PC directly to modem port forwarding is working.When I connect my PC through my router the port is closed. I followed instruction for port forwarding.
I'm a happy user of the E4200 for a few weeks now, and all in all it's a very robust and useful router.Within my network I have a webserver running using both HTTP (TCP 80) and HTTPS (TCP 443). I want to make this webserver available to the internet and so I configure port forwarding to forward port TCP 80 and TCP 443 to my internal webserver. As soon as I now apply these settings, I loose connection to the webinterface of the E4200 and get connected to my internal webserver. I would expect the router would only forward connections coming in through the external interface of the router, however this is apparently not the case (or at least not in my setup). So I tried setting up remote management on a different port to at least allow me to remotely manage the router, but this does not work from my internal network.
Right now, I'm assuming I'm doing something wrong, or have miss-configured something. Is it possible to switch the webadmin port to a different port (like 8080 and 8443)?
I set up my new E4200 to forward port 7300 to a computer on my LAN. I had this working on my Linksys WRT160N and copied all of the settings so they are identical to those on that router but forwarding does not work. I have tried single port forwarding, multiple port forwarding and even DMZ with the same lack of results.
I have a Cisco E4200 with a Thecus NAS behind it. I configured port forwarding on port 80, 1080 and 4433 to access the NAS. However it's not working. Also tried to place the NAS in DMZ, but also I cannot connect it from outside my network. Inside my network, there is no problem.I also connected the NAS directly to the internet, and then I can access it from outside my network.I already tried a factory reset, disabled UPnP and IPv6, but nothing seems to work. I also replaced the router with a Cisco E3200, but it makes no difference.
I have a e4200 router, And a 660 series modem, I'm trying to portforward for a game called minecraft, I cannot seem to get the ports to open, I've called Century link they told me to put my modem in to bridge mode, So I did they said my IP should be public not private now, It is still private
Trying to setup port forwarding for an XBox 360. Set fixed IP on XBox using IP outside DHCP range. DHCP range is .50 to .80. Set XBox to .49. Gateway is .1. Mask is 255.255.255.0.Added four port forwarding rules per directions on xbox site and also portforwarding.com for ports 53, 80, 88, 1074 to the static IP Turned off DMZ, Turned off UPnP, Turned off SPI. Windows firewall is on, running XP Pro SP3 and Win 7 Pro on other devices.Making the rules active for the fixed IP shuts off internet access for other devices.Single router (E4200 V2), switch, then remaining devices. Private IP addresses in the 192.168.xxx.xxx range. Rebooted router, same issue. What am I missing?
At the E4200 there is a limit of (free to make) 15 Single port forwarding and 15 port range forwarding to fill in.I get as suggestion that I must give up a total range of ports where all the ports I use where in.But for security reasons I will not do that.
how to: port forwarding to 2 different destinations based on incoming WAN port
The default HTTP service works fine: TCP80/80-> 192.168.0.55
I have a couple of IP security camera's I'd like to be able to access remotely that also listen on port 80. I tried TCP & UDP 8009/8009-> 192.168.0.9 without any luck. Not sure how to handle the port redirects on the RV042G? Seems simple and was on the Symantec, could be user training :-)
I was able to do port redirect with the Symantec Firewall I'm replacing.
I can SSH from the internet to my ASA on default port 22, directly to my public IP. I can SSH from the internet to my Cisco 1841 on port 2001. I can not however, SSH to my Cat 2960. From what i can tell, on the Cat2960 i can't change the default port 22 for SSH to different port, just like i did on the Cisco 1841. I looked to see if I can change the default port for SSH on he ASA, it does not look like this is an option.
The bottom line is that i want to be able to SSH to all three devices from the internet. I only have one public IP. As of now, what i can do is only SSH to the ASA on default port 22 directly to the public IP and Cisco 1841 on port 2001. It appears that changing the default SSH port on Cat 2960 is not an option. It also appears that I can't change the default SSH port on the ASA, if i could, i would and then i should be able to SSH to the Cat 2960 on port 22. No matter what i did on the ASA, it always listens on port 22 for SSH connections.
show asp table socket TCP 001f549f <<pub IP>>:22 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN
how do i make it listen on different port?
Here is relevent config for SSH for cisco 1841 (port forwarding)
I've set up port forwarding from an external port (9000) to an internal port (80) on our SRP541W, and for some reason, it's not working externally. If I access the public address from within the internal network, it works properly.
Region : UnitedKingdom Model : TD-W8970 Hardware Version : V1 Firmware Version : 0.6.0 0.11 v000c.0 Build 121203 Rel.46289n ISP : Virgin Media
Is there any way of forwarding an external port to a different internal port on the TD-8970 ?I saw a question posed on an Australian forum implying that it might be provided in a later firmware release.Our TD- 8970 has replaced a previous NetGear WAG 320N which had this facility, and is useful to provide access to multiple machines without having to modify each individually to use a different port.
I am having an issue opening a port (4040) on the 655 for my Fedora-based subsonic server. Inside the LAN, I can see the device from other peer machines, so I am confident the port is open and listening. However, I can't seem to get to the machine-port from outside/internet.
I have tried Virtual Server and Port Forwarding with single port. The server has a stactic IP which I've included in the DHCP range and outside the range. I have a DSL connection (AT&T), modem only. I have updated firmware. I have exhausted the Subsonic community's knowledge, everything points to the router, but all the settings seem correct. What am I missing? Is if possible there is a defect in the router? (don't laugh). Is there a way to trace a request to that port to see where it is hanging?
I want to create a Counter Strike Server and need to open some ports for that.The Problem: I cannot seem to open the ports for gaming.The Modem Setup: My Firewall is disabled.My guess is that, this is the area with the problem. I guess my modem is not forwarding onwards.The Problem: I tried checking my ports with websites like URL etc.It cannot access my port.
I have a DSL-524B from D-Link. My problem is, whenever I Port Forward port 80 to my comp's IP to host a web server, all the other computers connected to the router are unable to access the Internet. So, I set up no-ip to use port 8080, but, this exposes my ip and even when masking, if you look at the HTML code, you get the ip.I need to know how to open up port 80 without restricting Internet access to only my comp, or any other work around.
I use Bit Torrent to trade Grateful Dead concert recordings (all legit trading). I have Verizon DSL, a Westell 6100G Modem and a Linksys WRT 160N V2 Router. The Modem is located at 192.168.1.1 and the Router at 192.168.2.1. In the router setup page I have properly forwarded and triggered my ports. However, when I visit my torrent site, it tells me that I am firewalled or "NAT". I used to have the Linksys WRT54G Router and it was configured to PPPoE and everything worked fine. One day I did a firmware upgrade on the router and it would no longer connect to the internet. I switched ti to Automatic Configuration - DHCP and it connected, but performance was slow and this NAT issue began. I eventually got the new router and I have the same problem. If I set it to PPPoE, put in he username and password, I lose my internet connection. If set to Automatic Config - DHCP it works, but, again, "NAT".
Verizon told me that this newer modem self configures itself as PPPoE and there is no need to set the router to PPPoE but I can't seem to get these ports forwarded or get around this NAT issue. It is causing a significant loss of performance and while torrenting I can not connect to others, meaning I can not share what I have downloaded (the torrent client won;t upload). I have been screwing with this for months and have spent endless hours on the phone with Verizon - Linksys says my router is out of warranty so they want $39.95/month for tech support.I have been working with the tech support team on my torrent website and they can't get it figured out either.
I can successfully setup a DVR connected to the Westell (router/modem), forward ports and all is good for remote view, cellphone and PC. But, if i connect a DVR to the BEFSR81 router, then forward ports, ie 83, 9000, 18004, then forward same ports on Westell, using the BEFSR81 ip. I can see the port from outside the network. (canyouseeme.org) port 83 is open. But i cannot view DVR? if the port is open and the DVR is using said port, why is it not viewable? The DVR uses a DDNS and when testing, the DVR will communicate with the DDNS without issue.
Westell is 10.0.0... and the BEFSR81 is 192.168....
Port forwarding on my linksys is not seem to be working from outside the network. It works fine if I try on the same network. External ip address: 69.117.132.xxx Ports from 8080 through 8080 forwarded Internal ip address: 192.168.1.150 - static ip address assigned to the webserver. I understand 80 could be blocked by the ISP. Can 8080 also be the same case?
I am trying to run a server for minecraft, which some of you may know primarily uses Port 25565. I have tried everything that I've seen suggested. I have a Linksys WRT54GS router that I have my 2 xboxes, playstation 3, pc, and wii connected to. Now, I don't use any of these components at the same time. I had an issue with my xbox and the game "Black Ops", where my NAT type was strict, but a microsoft support technician walked me through port forwarding for the xbox, and it worked. My NAT type was displayed as "open" now. This is not the case with Port 25565 however, as even though I've port forwarded 25565 to my static IP i set up for my PC (which is my server PC), Port checking sites such as "Yougetsignal" and a couple of others are still showing no connection for the current external IP and Port 25565.
I went through ipconfig in windows "cmd" and made sure I had all the ip's and subnets and dns' and whatnot correctly entered in my routers configuration page. I went into Windows firewall and put new rules for port 25565 into incoming rules. None of this seems to work. I even shut off the firewall completely (temporarily, mind you), just to eliminate that possibility, to no avail. Still getting negative responses from these sites. I am able to log into my server myself, using "localhost" as the address, but none of my minecraft buddies can get on my server. I've also tried to use Hamachi to set up a server, which doesn't need ports to be forwarded, but although they can join my hamachi network, they can't join the server. Obviously there is more of a problem than just not being able to open ports, and I am at a loss.
Also, I am aware that my external IP, given by my ISP, will change with every disconnect and reconnect of my signal. I got my current IP address during this time and gave that to my buddies so they could join the non-hamachi network. For the Hamachi server I edited my Hamachi network IP into my server software's properties file, where as it would be left blank for my non-hamachi server.
I am finding it impossible to set up port forwarding. No matter what I do I remain completely stealthed when I do a port probe via [URL]... The only way I seem to be able to open a port is if I enable remote management. When I do that, whatever port I specifiy as the remote management port is then fully open. Obviously, I can't leave a port exposed like this and, anyway, I need to open multiple ports for my purposes.
I'm trying to port forward with the Linksys BEFW11S4, I've followed all the instruction from support website. I went to the Application & Gaming then Port Range Forwarding. I changed the settings so I can access this IP remotely. When I try to log into this IP from a different network it wont let me.
I am trying to install and use EchoLink on my pc's and they require port forwarding for 5198-5200 but I'm having trouble with theTo IP Address" as I don't know what # to use. It says I can't use 192.168.1.1 since it's the same as the LAN IP address so what do I use? I am trying to follow the instructions on [URL] If I leave it just as 192.168.1. it won't accept it and if I use any other number, it accepts it but I still can't get through.
I have some hardware on my internal network which I want to send udp packets. I can connect using telnet to it prooving that TCP and port forward works but when I try to send a UDP packet externally it fails.I can however send the same packet internally and port forwarding works fine.My router is Linksys by Cisco WAG320n.
I'm trying to open some ports for my webserver, I've configured the static IP and forwarded port 80 to my server's IP and I checked the port on canyouseeme.org and it says it's closed. I've tried multiple ports (21, 22, 7878 whatever) and all do the same thing.
So my next step was to try DMZ on the server's IP .. still no happiness .. ports stay closed. I checked this on multiple computers and it still won't open any ports for any machines on my network.
Updated to the latest firmware .. didn't make a difference. My ISP doesn't block any ports (didn't have any issues on my old router.
My first issue with this device is when I try to untick NAT to disable it I lose my internet connection. This also disables access to router's address 192.168.1.1 forcing me to reset the device and set it up all over again. Why is this happening? I tried this at least five times with the same result. Second question I have is if the DHCP reservation is the right option if I want to forward ports for certain applications like Vuze? When the DHCP reservation window opens I see all my wireless devices in the list (laptop, phone) but not the main computer which is connected through ethernet port. But that is yet another problem.
I've got a cable modem, connection is set to Automatic DHCP and I all want is to disable all firewalls, NAT and other unnecessary protection that's slowing my internet speed, set up MAC address filtering, port forwarding and close this terrible software so I never have to see it or think about it ever again.
I just bought a WRT120N wireless router, and have run into some strange problems with port forwarding. I have a two router setup, because my ISP have set it up so i can only use my router from them to get my connection, and then i just have that one connected to my WRT120N. So my setup looks like the following:
The problem is that ONLY the three first ports works. I have forwarded them in the exact same manner, give it a name, put in the same external and internal port, and enable the port forwarding, but according ot can you seeme.org, only 4667, 6112, and 4669 can be seen, the rest is not responding. I even tried to enable port 21, which is a default setting in the router, but it will just not work.I have of course tried to reboot both router and PC, upgraded the routers firmware, but no luck.
