If you don't know what Port Forwarding is yet, you might want to start by reading our What is Port Forwarding guide.
You might also be interested in our huge collection of Router Screenshots where you can see every page of every router that we know of.
Now we need to know your routers IP address. You can find it a variety of ways.
It's ok if you don't know your 2wire 2701HG-B router's internal IP address. You can find it by doing one of the following:
Open a web browser like Internet Explorer or Firefox. Enter the internal IP address of your router in the address bar of your browser.
In the picture above the address bar has http://www.google.com in it. Just replace all of that with the internal IP address of your 2wire 2701HG-B router. By default the IP address should be set to 172.16.0.1.
If you are having trouble with this guide, then perhaps PFConfig may be your solution. PFConfig is a software tool that will automatically forward ports for your 2wire 2701HG-B router to save you time and hassle.
Before we can forward ports for SababaDC, we need to figure out what ports SababaDC is using. Here is a brief walkthrough on how to do that. Go ahead and open up SababaDC.
Click the File button in the menu at the top of your screen. In the menu that drops down click Settings.
In the menu on the left hand side of this page click the Connection Settings link. You should see a TCP Port box and an UDP Port box. Enter a random port into each of these boxes. It doesn't matter what ports you choose, but a port numbers between 10000 and 60000 would be a good idea. A higher numbered port is generally the best to use, because most ISP's do not block the higher numbered ports. Please enter the port you chose for the TCP Port box into the box below.
Please enter the port you chose for the UDP Port box into the box below.
Now that you are logged in to your 2wire 2701HG-B router you should see the following:
Look for your password on the bottom of your router or in the paperwork that came with your router.
Click the Firewall button.
Click the Firewall Settings button.
Use the Select a computer box to choose a device to forward ports to. This box contains a list of device names that are visible on your network.
Click the Add a new user-defined application link.
We will list a series of lines here that will show you exactly how to forward the ports you need to forward. SababaDC requires you to forward the AppFullPortsListTag ports. Go ahead and enter the settings shown above into the Edit Application menu and then click Add Definition.
You should see another page of settings that need to be entered into one of the blank lines on your routers Edit Application page. Go ahead and enter those settings and then click Add Definition.
Click the Back button.
Select the applications you just created in the Applications list, then click the Add button to move them to the Hosted Applications box.
When you are finished, click the Done button at the bottom of your screen.
And that is it! You are done!
Now that you have forwarded ports for SababaDC on the 2wire 2701HG-B you should test to see if your ports are forwarded correctly.
