You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now.

Before we can forward ports for BitSpirit, we need to figure out what ports BitSpirit is using. Here is a brief walkthrough on how to do that. Go ahead and open up BitSpirit.
Click Options in the menu at the top of your screen. In the list that drops down click Preferences.
Click the Network Options tab at the top of that page. You should now see the menu shown in the screenshot above. The number in the Default Port for TCP Listening box contains the port you need to forward. You can change this port if you want to. If you do change it, it is a good idea to pick a port between 10000 and 60000. Most ISPs do not block those higher numbered ports.
Now that you are logged in to your Trendnet TEW-231BRP router you should see the following:
Click the Advanced Setup link near the center of the page.
Click the NAT link near the left of the page.
You should now see a new menu. In this new menu, click Virtual Server.
We will list a series of lines here that will show you exactly how to forward the ports you need to forward. BitSpirit requires you to forward the ports you entered above. Go ahead and enter the settings shown above into the Virtual Server menu.
|Mapping Ports||Server IP||Enabled|
When you're finished, click Apply near the bottom of the screen to save your changes.
And that's it! You're done!
Now that you have forwarded ports for BitSpirit on the Trendnet TEW-231BRP you should test to see if your ports are forwarded correctly.
