Before we can forward ports for Ares, we need to figure out what ports ares is using. Here is a brief walkthrough on how to do that.
Open up Ares. Then click the Control Panel icon in the toolbar at the top of your screen.
You should see a bunch of tabs close to the top of this window. One of these tabs should be labeled Transfer. Go ahead and click it now.
Enter the port you want Ares to use into the Accept incoming connections on port box. By default this port is set to 1157. You can change it to whatever you like, or leave it set to 1157.
Please enter the port you chose for Ares below.
Now that you are logged in to your Microcom AD-2656 router you should see the following:
Click the Virtual Server link near the left 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. Ares 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 Add This Setting.
|ID||Public Port - Start||Public Port - End||Private Port||Port Type||Host IP Address|
When you're finished, click Save Settings near the left of the screen to save your changes.
And that's it! You're done!
