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 Dlink DIR-615 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 DIR-615 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 Log In button to log in to your Dlink DIR-615 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 DIR-615 router username and password, use our How to Reset a Router Password guide to set your Dlink DIR-615 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 DIR-615 router you should see the following:
Click the Advanced button near the top of the page.
Click the Port Forwarding button near the left of the page.
Put a checkmark in the Enable checkbox.
Enter the name of the program into the Name box. It doesn't really matter what you put into this box, but something that will remind you why these ports are being forwarded would be a good idea.
Use the Computer Name box to choose a device to forward ports to. This box contains a list of device names that are visible on your network.
These entries are protocol specific. If the ports you are forwarding need to be forwarded using the TCP protocol, you should enter those ports into the TCP section. If the ports you are forwarding need to be forwarded with the UDP protocol, you should enter those ports into the udp section.
Enter the ports to forward into the TCP or UDP box. These ports can be entered as a list 23,24,25, a range 500-600, or a combination of both 23,45,500-600.
Select Always from the Schedule drop down box.
Select Allow All from the Inbound Filter drop down box.
When you're finished, click Save Settings near the top 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 DIR-615 you should test to see if your ports are forwarded correctly.
