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-711 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 Dlink DI-711 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-711 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-711 router username and password, use our How to Reset a Router Password guide to set your Dlink DI-711 router back to its factory settings.
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 router to save you time and hassle.
Now that you are logged in to your Dlink DI-711 router you should see the following:
Click the Advanced button near the top of the page.
The menu on the left should change. In this new menu, click Virtual Server Settings.
Enter the ip address to forward these ports to into the Internal IP box. If you are forwarding ports so you can run a program on your device, you should enter your device's ip address into that box.
Select the service you created from the Service drop down box.
When you're finished, click Submit near the bottom of the screen to save your changes.
And that's it! You're done!
Now that you have forwarded ports for any port on the Dlink DI-711 you should test to see if your ports are forwarded correctly.
