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 was trying to port forward and could not get it to work. I run a Camfrog room sever of my desktop computer. I needed the TCP port 6005 open to the desktop and UDP ports 5000-15000. I enter that in to the Port forwarding setting but it never work. So later on today I try this I blank out the TCP 6005 in the port forwarding and letf the UDP setting in it and saved it. Then I went to the Virtual server settings and add camfrog3 in the name and put the TCP port 6005 in to it and check it and save the setting and bingo it work.
Alright, so I'm trying to set up a Minecraft server without having to use some sort of hosting program, such as LogMeIn Hamachi. I have tried port forwarding both my external IP from "whatismyip.com" and from ipconfig in the CMD WITH the correct Minecraft port, and others still cannot connect. note that I can only connect to my own server when I use the IPv4 address from my CMD. get my server working so that others can connect? (I have been sure to change my "server properties" file's "server-ip" line accordingly.)
I have read the sticky about the Game fuel, and i have tried resetting everything, static IP address, all the info i have found on line. i still i keep getting booted when i join a game, or most of the time i cannot join a party. No matter what changes I make it gets worse than factory setting. i have read for hours on different ways to set up the router and what not. i have changed settings on the PS3, router and still getting nowhere.so can some one pls tell me how to set this thing up before i use it as anger management.?i know how to access the router page . but i don't get the setting up port forwarding.
So I have two xbox 360's plugged directly into my dir-655 router with Ethernet cables. I have no idea how to port forward these, correctly and everything I try ends up with my router being reset. I don't have a pc connected to the router, only a wireless laptop.
opening ports for multiple xbox 360's (Black Ops is what we are trying to play).
One thing I do know is that when I tried portforward.com's walk-thru for port forwarding, when I enter the ports into the dir-655 port-forward menu, I can no longer connect to Black Ops at all, it says servers are down (WHICH THEY ARE NOT I CHECKED).
I am using DIR-655 A4 router and I have a server that needs DMZ and a PC that needs a port.So, I have set the dmz to 192.168.0.100 (SERVER) and set the port 2000(or any) to forward to 192.168.0.2 (PC).What I found out was, the port forwarding works well for several hours and suddenly it fails and won't forward until I reboot my 655 router. I am really tired doing this every day. I tried firmware 1.21 to 1.35 and non of them were good.I know that 655 has good performance compare to its price but I think it has world's worst firmware.
One of the persons involved in a home network has installed a Dlink DIR-825 Rev-B Extreme router on the Comcast cable system to allow a 'better' wireless signal on upper floors of the home. Two others involved in the same home network use a 'secure desktop access' software called NetOp to access the network remotely. To facilitate this software, we must 'port forward' port 6502 on BOTH UDP and TCP to the single system that is accessed.
However, this setup (simple port forwarding) does not seem to work - neither does 'virtual server', for that matter. Prior to this router being installed, it was extremely simple to accomplish this remote access using a Linksys router, so our software firewall configuration has not changed but the new Dlink seems unable to allow remote access.
How (and via which of these access methods - port forwarding or virtual server) would be best? This configuration seems frustratingly difficult to accomplish and I'm about to take the Dlink 'out' of the network and re-install the Linksys with a 'high-gain' external antenna to facilitate simple signal enhancement.
Edit I've found a work-around. It's on page 2: [URL]
I'm having this really weird issue with my DIR-655 revB. I have some port forwarding rules set up and externally they work fine. However, if I try connecting to my IP address using those same ports from a computer within my LAN, it won't connect.
Externally, I can ping my WAN address and connect through forwarded ports. No problems. Internally, pinging my WAN address apparently works (just now is the first time that's worked for me), however I can't access any of my computers using the WAN IP and port forwarded ports. I can access them by going directly to their hostnames or LAN IPs.
Things I've tried:
-Disabling/enabling firewalls on all computers involved
-Disabling/enabling QoS engine
-Disabling/enabling DNS relay
-Disabling/enabling Advanced DNS
-Adding custom nameservers from Google and Comodo
-Clearing DNS cache (I use a dynamic DNS name which works externally but not internally. This gets the correct IP internally and connecting directly to the IP doesn't work either.)
-Modifying the NAT Endpoint Filtering settings
I have an external DSL modem connected to the router using PPPoE if it matters.
The weird part is that it works externally but I've modified all of the values I can think of in the config with no luck. I upgraded to the DIR-655 from a DIR-615 which had all these settings in it and worked fine (until it started acting up which is why I replaced it).
I recently upgraded my internet service and received a D-Link DIR-815 from the company as they couldn't get our older router working with the new service (4G)
My brother plays Star craft and you have to forward ports to be able to host games for others to join, but it doesn't work.
I know how to port forward because our old router had exactly the same setup, but I have one issue though, when I look at the DIR-815's manual, and even in posts made by D-Link, I've seen them asking if the filters for the firewall are set to Endpoint Independent for UDP/TCP, now I know where this is, it's under Advanced/Firewall Settings, it even shows it there in the manual, but it's not there at all under my firewall settings, my older DIR router had it and we had no problems port forwarding, I'm not sure if it was removed in a later hardware or something?
Router Model: TP-Link TD-W8970 port forwarding my modem/router. I previously was able to successfully port forward a Valve Source Server and had other people join on the internet so...(It worked) I recently reformatted and since have had issues.
I'm currently setup with PPPOA and I've added various ports for different programs (a Teamspeak 3 Server and Minecraft) either dont work. I used a port checker program and they either say the port is closed or the connection is refused...I've tried using a static IP but I think i configured it wrong becuase i was barely able to get the internet while using it, either way..the ports didn't open.
DCHP is disabled (Tried enabling, didn't work) The above ports are enabled with Windows firewall (inbound+outbound) and Im not using any Anti-virus software to block the ports. Windows 7 64bit, fresh format and ports that wont go through.
the difference between Virtual Servers and Port Forwarding on the DIR-825? I'm transitioning my router setup for a Tomato/MLPPP router to the DIR-825 and I'm a little confused on when you would use "Virtual Servers" and when you would use Port Forwarding? In the past, I've always relied on port forwarding to allow access to specific services on my LAN (ie. VPN, Apple Remote Desktop, etc.), so again, unsure what the Virtual Servers is used for?From what I can tell, Virtual Servers is for services that require a single port for communication (ie. a basic SSH setup on port 22) while Port Forwarding allows for the setup of services that require multiple ports (ie. VPN on ports 500 [UDP], 1701 [UDP], 1723 [TCP] and 4500 [UDP]). Is that the differences between the two configuration pages? It just seems odd to me to have two separate windows for just this difference? If that's the case, is there any reason I couldn't just use port forwarding, even for services that only require a single port (just to keep everything on the same configuration page, under Port Forwarding)?
None of the port forwarding settings are working at all on my router. I have just a couple very simple settings. One of them is just an IP camera. I input the name, the TCP port, the computer (IP address) and that's it. This works just fine with my other Netgear router, but with this router, NADA. The router has the latest version of the firmware applied. Just applied it. Hardware version B. Firmware version: 2.10NA. If so, then I really need my money back since it is a main function of a router and it should work. Can't return it now, since I bought it several months ago. Never knew port forwarding didn't work because I never needed it until now.
I wonder what the difference is between the virtual server and the port forwarding because the router I was using previously had only port forwarding. When should I use virtual server instead of port forwarding?
I was changing the port forwarding configuration when suddenly the router stopped working, and now the "D-Link" light is constantly on, and the power light and the 4 LAN lights are flashing. Nothing worked, resetting, or unplug and plug again in a short time.
I disconnected it for 12 hours, and when I plugged in again, it kinda worked, and the settings where factory defaults, so when I tried to connect it to DSL via PPoE, when ( I believe ) it reboots to accept the changes, it starting flashing again and completely stopped working.
So I waited 12 hours more unplugged, plugged it and it worked, and the setting from 12 hours earlier were still there. But when trying to connect to the DSL it stopped working AGAIN.
Now I don't know what to do. I guess I am going to keep trying connecting with little differences, until something.
I believe it still has warranty but since the is no official service in Uruguay, it isn't economically viable to send it overseas.
I am currently connected directly to the DSL, sharing connection to other computers through a switch and hosting an ad-hoc wireless network, but the performance is terrible and the wireless range is minimal.
I have DIR-615, connected via ethernet. I enabled port forwarding for Quake 3, using the range of 27660-27980 to account for custom server ports. Set schedule to "always" although also did "never" but it didn't make a difference. I checked the FAQs for frequent resets vis a vis application outbound requests, which recommended disable uPnP and this had no effect. Symptom: when Quake 3 attempts to connect to the Master Server, the router resets all connections, LAN and WLAN. It takes approximately 30 seconds to regain connection to WAN, although LAN does not drop. Also during this time, the world sigil on the router itself turns orange. This is the only time this happens, when trying to play Quake 3. Previous router to this one was Linksys (by Cisco) BEFSR41, in which simply setting up port forwarding for the client IP address allowed connection. I can find no particular reason why the router resets all interfaces when blocking a port, if it is indeed the firewall triggering this.

I have seemingly tried everything! I am still getting vpn error 720 using windows client trying to connect to vpn server using PPTP. I am about to go out an buy another WNR200 because vpn works flawlessly on that router. I have 2 virtual servers set up, one for port 1723, the other for port 47(GRE). All the ALG check boxes are checked(I have tried them both ways, when they are un checked and I use port forwarding i get vpn error 800). I have tried with SPI enabled and disabled. No port forwarding set up for vpn just the virtual servers. Firmware is 1.34NA, 2010/04/16.

Have spent most of the day trying to get port forwarding to work! U an trying to run a mail server and am forwarding ports 25, 110, 995 to a PC on my LAN, only problem is the ports never get there. I can connect quite happily if I wire a laptop to the router BUT as soon as I try to connect from externally either by mail.domainname or IP I am not able to connect. Using telnet I can't connect to the ports either. If I forward port 80 I still connect straight to the router rather than trying to connect to the mail server for webmail. At the moment I am having to forward all mail from the server to a google account just to read it!!
I'm trying to configure port forwarding for FTP but in my case it isn't as simple as i assumed ... i have an actiontec router/modem that serves as incoming internet from my provider (FIOS), which i connected to my own router (dir-825). i mainly configure my network on the dlink and leave the actiontec alone.
I currently use a D-Link DIR-655 router on a game server I run and I've been having this problem for sometime now. I have the router hooked up to the internet modem, and then my server computer hooked up to the router's first port. I use port forwarding to forward the game ports, as well as my FTP server ports. I have about 80 clients or so logged in at a time on my server.The issue is the following. Our internet connection has an external IP of 184.108.40.206 (this is just an example). My internal IP is 192.168.0.101.When I do "netstat" to see all the clients logged in to the game server on this computer or when I run Wireshark, every client logged in to the server (for this game application) is shown as having an IP of 220.127.116.11 (the server's external IP).On the other hand, for our FileZilla FTP server, if I run Wireshark/netstat, I can actually see the client's external IP (i.e. each individual IP of people logged into the FTP).If I hook up the server directly to the internet modem, this isn't a problem, and I am able to correctly see the IP of each client logged in to the game server individually.
First off, my router is a D-Link DIR-655, firmware v2.07. I'm trying to port forward port 25565.
My port forward settings are this:
However, when I use this open port checker, it claims that I don't have that port open. It looks like this, without the blurred out parts:
Added note: The way I want to use it is by my IP (xxx.xxx.xxx.154:25565). I have the software installed to do so (I'm using a minecraft server, connecting through minecraft), but I can't enter my IP in the IP address field, it says that it's out of the range of the LAN.
Region : Italy Model : TD-W8961ND Hardware Version : V3 Firmware Version : 3.0.0 Build 120720 Rel.09287 ISP : alice
A couple of weeks ago I have bought a TD-W8961ND in replacement of my old modem/router (of another brand, to upgrade from Wireless G to N). I tried to replicate in the new router something similar to my old setup, so I programmed Virtual Servers (under the NAT menu) with the following rules: NATRules.jpg in an attempt to:
- grant access from "outside" Internet to my web server
- have a Wakeup-On-LAN from "outside" Internet ..etc.. without success. Please note that:
- I have successfully setup a DDNS server to reach my modem router from outside
- as for WOL, I defined my subnet mask as 255.255.255.128
- I have not set any other rule, nor in NAT, nor in routing or other
- I tried also with firewall disabled
- I do my testing by means of a smartphone with wireless disabled and Internet connection via mobile service provider
- Both the above mentioned functions were working with my old modem/router (and still work on LAN), and I have not changed other things (PC setup etc)

I've been using the W8968 for a while now with the default firmware out of the box. Everything was working fine, except that during a hard reset (power off-an-on) all my port forwarding settings were gone. This was so annoying that I decided to upgrade the firmware to 120926. Now the settings don't disappear, but the port forwarding stopped working. I've tried to connect from the outside to all of the ports that I opened on the router, but it kept on saying the port is closed (even though it appears on the port forwarding list and the status is "Enabled"). The router firewall is also disabled.

Region : Greece Model : TD-W8961NB Hardware Version : V2 Firmware Version : 2.0.0 120823 ISP : otenet
The problem is that the voip is not working. I have 2 offices with adsl connection. A is the central office and B is the branch office. The installation is old with deferent ADSL modem-router(Zyxel). The zyxel at the A office was damaged so i had to change it with Tp-link. The potology with ip and cables is the same. I tested the port forward for voip (port 1720) with telnet from outside of the office and responds correct. When i try to call from the A office to B office it seems that i can not connect. When i call from B office to A office the phone is ringing and i can not hear office B but office B hear office A. When i use the old modem router at the office A everything is working fine but the modem-router works just for a while so i have to change it. I closed the firewall but the problem is still the same. I talked with the local distributor and they tolded me that i have to correct the configuration. At the interface setup is chosen the dynamic at the section get ip and not static as i should do. The is a problem there. The configuration asks me the subnet mask and gateway. I do not know the subnet mask and either the local distributor and the local internet provider cannot assist. The internet provider told me to use at the subnet mask 255.255.255.240 and at the gateway the ip of the router. I did that but when i did i lost the internet connection. I have to mention that i make some other port forwards to my SBS2003 server and like remote desktop, vpn connections and https that works fine. The only prolbem is with the vpn port forwarding.
