How to Port Forward SababaDC on the Philips SNA6500


Having trouble forwarding ports on the Philips SNA6500?

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 Philips SNA6500 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.
