Before we can forward ports for lphant, we need to figure out what ports lphant is using. Here is a brief walkthrough on how to do that. Go ahead and open up lphant.
Close to the top of the lphant window there should be a row of buttons. Click this Options button in this row.
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 box into the box below.
Please enter the port you chose for the UDP box into the box below.
Now that you are logged in to your Sierra Wireless AirCard_802S router you should see the following:
Click the Advanced Settings button near the top of the page.
Click the Router button near the top of the page.
You should now see a new menu. In this new menu, click Port Forward.
We will list a series of lines here that will show you exactly how to forward the ports you need to forward. lphant requires you to forward the ports you entered above. Go ahead and enter the settings shown above into the Port Forward menu and then click Add.
You should see another page of settings that need to be entered into one of the blank lines on your routers Port Forward page. Go ahead and enter those settings and then click Add.
When you're finished, click Save near the bottom of the screen to save your changes.
And that's it! You're done!
Now that you have forwarded ports for lphant on the Sierra Wireless AirCard_802S you should test to see if your ports are forwarded correctly.
