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 Buffalo WBR-G54 router to save you time and hassle.
Before we can forward ports for BCDC++, we need to figure out what ports BCDC++ is using. Here is a brief walkthrough on how to do that. Go ahead and open up BCDC++.
In the menu at the top of your screen click the file option. In the menu that drops down click the Settings link.
In the menu on the left hand side of the window that popped up click the Connection Settings link. You should see a TCP box and an UDP 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 box into the box below.
Please enter the port you chose for the UDP box into the box below.
Now that you are logged in to your Buffalo WBR-G54 router you should see the following:
Click the Advanced button near the bottom of the page.
Click the Network Settings link near the left of the page.
You should now see a new menu. In this new menu, click Address Translation.
Click the Enter NAT Table button near the bottom of the page.
We will list a series of lines here that will show you exactly how to forward the ports you need to forward. BCDC++ requires you to forward the ports you entered above. Go ahead and enter the settings shown above into the Add NAT Table menu and then click Add to NAT Table.
|IP Address of WAN|
|IP Address of LAN|
You should see another page of settings that need to be entered into one of the blank lines on your routers Add NAT Table page. Go ahead and enter those settings and then click Add to NAT Table.
|IP Address of WAN|
|IP Address of LAN|
Put a check into the Group checkbox for every configuration you just created.
Click the Enable marked group button near the bottom of the page.
When you're finished, click Apply near the top of the screen to save your changes.
And that's it! You're done!
Now that you have forwarded ports for BCDC++ on the Buffalo WBR-G54 you should test to see if your ports are forwarded correctly.
