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 Ericsson hn290dp 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 Ericsson hn290dp 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 Connect button to log in to your Ericsson hn290dp router.
Please visit our Default Ericsson 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 Ericsson hn290dp router username and password, use our How to Reset a Router Password guide to set your Ericsson hn290dp 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 Ericsson hn290dp router to save you time and hassle.
BitLord chooses a random port to listen on when you install it. Before we can forward ports for BitLord, we need to find out what port BitLord is using. Go ahead and open BitLord.
In the menu at the top of your screen, click Options. Clicking Options will cause a menu to drop down. In this new menu click Preferences.
In the menu on the left the top option Connection should be selected. On the right hand side of this window you should see a Listen Port option. That is the port that you need to forward. You can change it if you like. Please enter the listen port below.
There is one more thing we need to do. We need to shut off the UPNP of BitLord.
In the menu on the left hand side under Advanced, click Connection. There should be an Enable UPnP Port Mapping(XP only) checkbox on the right hand side. Make sure it is unchecked.
Now that you are logged in to your Ericsson hn290dp 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 a 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. BitLord requires you to forward the ports you entered above. Go ahead and enter the settings shown above into the Create a New Server menu and then click Apply.
|ATM PVC Name|
|TCP/IP Port||User Define as (min: 1, max: 65535)|
|TCP/IP Port||(min: 1, max: 65535)|
Click the System link near the left of the page.
You should now see a new menu. In this new menu, click Save Configuration.
When you're finished, click Save near the center of the screen to save your changes.
And that's it! You're done!
Now that you have forwarded ports for BitLord on the Ericsson hn290dp you should test to see if your ports are forwarded correctly.
