The Billion Bipac 5200 router has a very basic firewall that helps to protect your home network from unwanted Internet activity. The firewall does this by blocking incoming and outgoing connections that are not authorized. In order to authorize additional connections you need to create what is called a port forward.
In this guide we will walk you through the steps involved in port forwarding the Billion Bipac 5200 router. These steps are:
- How to setup a static IP address on the device you plan on forwarding these ports to.
- How to login to the Billion Bipac 5200 router interface.
- How to find the port forwarding page in the router's web interface.
- How to setup a port forward for the online game or program of your choice.
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.

- Another highly recommended way of getting a permanent IP address is to set up a DHCP Reservation.
- Or, follow our Static IP Address Setup guides.
With DHCP reservations you can manage your devices from your router. This centralizes the management of your network and helps prevent IP address conflicts. Using this method you do not have to log in to your devices separately.
TIP: Write this static IP address down. You need it in Step 4.
Now we are going to login to your Billion Bipac 5200 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.

- UDP Ports: 3074
If you are looking for the ports for a different application you can find it by either:
Use the Rule Index dropdown box to choose the rule you want to modify.
If you are just forwarding a single port number then you can simply enter that same number into both the Start Port Number and the End Port Number boxes. If you are forwarding a range of ports, usually separated by a hyphen, then you need to enter the lowest number of that range into the Start Port Number box and then enter highest number into the End Port Number box.
Enter the IP address that you want to forward these ports to in the Local IP Address box. You can enter either the IP address of your computer or the IP address of another computer or device on your network.
Your ports should now be open. It is time to test them.
