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 Dynalink RTA220 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 Dynalink RTA220 router. By default the IP address should be set to 192.168.1.1.
You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now.

Please visit our Default Dynalink Router Passwords page if the username and password shown below did not work for you.

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 Dynalink RTA220 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 Dynalink RTA220 router you should see the following:
Click the Configuration link near the left of the page.
You should now see a new menu. In this new menu, click Virtual Server.
Click the Create New Server 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. SababaDC requires you to forward the AppFullPortsListTag ports. Go ahead and enter the settings shown above into the Create a New 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 Create a New 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 SababaDC on the Dynalink RTA220 you should test to see if your ports are forwarded correctly.
