How to Port Forward StrongDC++ on the Sitecom DC-203


Having trouble forwarding ports on the Sitecom DC-203?

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 Sitecom DC-203 router to save you time and hassle.

Before we can forward ports for StrongDC++, we need to figure out what ports StrongDC++ is using. Here is a brief walkthrough on how to do that. Go ahead and open up StrongDC++.

In the menu at the top of your screen click the File option. In the list the drops down click the Settings link.

There should be a list of options on the left hand side of the window that poped up. Click the Connection Settings option in this list. Put a dot into the Firewall with Manual Port Forwarding radio button. You should see a TCP box and an UDP 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.
