To setup port forwarding on the Dlink DI-624S router your device needs to have a static IP address. You should complete one of the following steps first:
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 Dlink DI-624S router's internal IP address. You can find it by doing one of the following:
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 Dlink DI-624S router. By default the IP address should be set to 192.168.0.1.
You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now.
Click the Ok button to log in to your Dlink DI-624S router.
Please visit our Default Dlink Router Passwords page if the username and password shown below did not work for you.
If you can't login to your router because you forgot your Dlink DI-624S router username and password, use our How to Reset a Router Password guide to set your Dlink DI-624S router back to its factory settings.
Before we can forward ports for eMule, we need to figure out what ports eMule is using. Here is a brief walkthrough on how to do that. Go ahead and open up eMule.
Click the Options button in the menu at the top of your screen.
Click the Connection option on the left hand side of your screen. 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 Dlink DI-624S router you should see the following:
Click the Advanced button near the top 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. eMule requires you to forward the ports you entered above. Go ahead and enter the settings shown above into the Virtual Server menu and then click Apply.
You should see another page of settings that need to be entered into one of the blank lines on your routers Virtual Server page. Go ahead and enter those settings and then click Apply.
And that is it! You are done!
Now that you have forwarded ports for eMule on the Dlink DI-624S you should test to see if your ports are forwarded correctly.
