We are going to show you how to forward port 6112 TCP, which is the only port that must be forwarded for Warcraft III. You can change the port that Warcraft III uses for hosting on the Options/Gameplay screen. If you decide to change the port that Warcraft III is uses for hosting you should select a port in the 6113-6119 range. You would really only want to do this when you had two computers on your network that were trying to host custom games. Remember that you would need to forward the port that the second computer will be hosting on to the second computer.
Now that you are logged in to your Siemens Gigaset-204A router you should see the following:
Click the Advanced Setup button near the top of the page.
Click the NAT button near the top of the page.
Click the Virtual Server link 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. Warcraft III requires you to forward the 6112-6119 ports. Go ahead and enter the settings shown above into the Virtual Server menu and then click Save.
