How to open a port on the Allied Telesyn AR240E

Allied Telesyn AR240E routers include a very basic firewall that helps protect your home network form unwanted access from the internet. Since this firewall blocks incoming connections you may need open a port through it for certain games and applications. This process of opening a port is frequently called a port forward, since you are forwarding a port from the internet to your home network.

The basic process to open a port is:

  1. Setup a static ip address on either your computer or device that you want to forward a port to.
  2. Login to your Allied Telesyn AR240E router.
  3. Navigate to the port forwarding section.
    • Click the Security link.
    • Click the NAT link.
    • Click the Add Reserved Mapping button.
  4. Create a port forward entry.

While these steps might seem difficult at first, we will walk you through each step for your Allied Telesyn AR240E router.



We think that forwarding a port should be easy. That's why we created Network Utilities. Our software does everything that you need to forward a port.

Step 1

It is important to setup a static ip address in the device that you are forwarding a port to. This ensures that your ports will remain open even after your device reboots.

  • Or follow our Static IP Address guide to setup a static IP address.

Step 2

Now we are going to login to your Allied Telesyn AR240E router. Your router has a web interface, so you will login to it using your web browser. This can be either Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Edge. It usually does not matter which browser you choose to use.

Open up your web browser and find the address bar. It should look something like this:


http://192.168.1.1:8080

In the picture above the address bar has http://192.168.1.1:8080 in it. Just replace all of that with the IP address of your Allied Telesyn AR240E router. Your router's ip address can also be refered to as your computer's default gateway.

By default the IP address is set to: http://192.168.1.1:8080

After entering the IP address of your router you can simply press enter. If all goes well you will see the following screen:

  • The Default Allied Telesyn AR240E Router Username is: manager
  • The Default Allied Telesyn AR240E Router Password is: friend

Enter your username and password, and then click the Login button to log in to your Allied Telesyn AR240E router.

Step 3

Now we need to find the port forwarding section in your router. Here's how you do it. Starting from the first page in your router:

Click the NAT link.

If NAT is not enabled, you do not have to do port forwarding. Your router is setup as a bridge. You get your IP addresses directly from your ISP. If the software you are trying to run does not work, your ISP may be blocking those ports. You should make sure those ports are allowed through any firewall you may have on your device.

If NAT is enabled, you should see a Add Reserved Mapping button on this page. Go ahead and click that button now.

Step 4

Now we are ready to enter some data in your router. In order to show you exactly how to configure your router we need you to answer 2 questions:

Application :
IP Address :

(The IP Address to forward to should be the same "static ip address" that you setup above)

Our router simulator shows you exactly what data to enter in your router based on your choices above. We are currently showing the ports for XBox Live. You should fill out the boxes in the router as you see them here:

When you're finished, click Save Configuration near the left of the screen to save your changes.
