Netgear DG824M Router Port Forwarding Screenshots
Now that you are logged in to your Netgear DG824M router you should see the following:
Forward Ports 80 on the Netgear DG824M
We will list a series of lines here that will show you exactly how to forward the ports you need to forward. Foscam FI8918W requires
you to forward the 80 ports. Go ahead and enter the settings shown above into the Port Forwarding menu and then click Add.
Under Security in the left hand menu click Services.
You should see the following menu.
Click Add a Custom Service
Go ahead and name your service. It doesn't really matter what the name is, but something easy to remember would be good.
Select tcp or udp under type. If you are unsure of the type just select both. Last put in the Start and Finishing port numbers.
If the service only requires one port, put that port number in both the start and the finish box. You may need to
setup multiple services, depending upon the number of ports/port ranges the software you want to run requires.
Click Apply when you have finished.
Now we need to go to the second section to continue setting up our port forwarding.
Under Security in the left hand menu click Rules.
Once again you should see the following menu.
Go ahead and click Add in the Outbound or Inbound services section. If you are unsure whether the program you are using will use these ports for inbound or outbound traffic, repeat steps 7 through 9 for both Inbound and Outbound.
Send to LAN Server
Select the service we previously created. Action should be set to ALLOW always.
Enter the ip address you want to forward these ports to in Send to LAN Server. If you are forwarding ports so you can run a program
on your computer, you should enter the your computers ip address into this box. Wan Users should be set to Any,
unless you want to limit who you want to connect to these ports. This would be useful, lets say, if you only wanted
your office computer to be able to ftp into your home computer. In that case you would put your office computers ip address in
both the start and finish box. Generally log should be set to never, unless of course you want to create a log of network activity.
When you are finished with that configuration go ahead and click Apply.
And that is it! You are done!
