Your Billion Bipac 7560 router has a firewall. The firewall does a good job of keeping your home network safe from unwanted Internet access. The firewall does this by blocking all connections to and from the Internet that have not been authorized by your router. Some online games and programs will run much smoother if you open additional connections through the firewall. This process is frequently called a port forward.
In this guide I will show you how to setup a port forward on the Billion Bipac 7560 router. The steps I will cover in detail are:
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.
When you use Network Utilities you get your port forwarded right now!
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.
I strongly recommend writing this address down. You need it in Step 4.
Let's login to the Billion Bipac 7560 router. Your router (like most others) use a web interface, which simply means you need to use a web browser to login to the device interface.
It normally doesn't matter which web browser you use to do this, we recommend using the one you are most familiar with such as Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.
Once you have opened the web browser, find the address bar. This is typically at the top of the page like this:
In the picture above the address bar has 192.168.1.254 in it. Just replace all of that with the IP address of your Billion Bipac 7560 router. Your router's ip address can also be refered to as your computer's default gateway.
By default the Billion Bipac 7560 router has an IP address of: 192.168.1.254
After entering the IP address of your router you can simply press the Enter key. If all goes well you will see the following screen:
You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. If you do not, you need to find out what the router's IP address is. To do this you can follow the directions on our How To Find Your Router's IP Address page.
Enter your username and password, and then click the OK or Login button to log in to your Billion Bipac 7560 router.
Here are a few things you can try if the username and password did not work:
Now we need to find the port forwarding section in your router. Here's how you do it. Starting from the Status page in your router:
Select the Configuration link in the left sidebar.
This opens up more links. Select the new option of Virtual Server.
Now, select the option of Add Virtual Server in the center section of the page.
That should take you to a page like the one you see above. This is the correct page to create a port forward entry.
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 two questions:
(The IP address box above needs to contain the static IP address you created in the first step.)
This next section is our router simulator. It shows you exactly what to enter in the router based on the information above. Currently we are showing the ports for XBox Live. If this correct, simply fill in the boxes in your router as you see them below:
Once you are completely finished, click the Save Config to FLASH option in the left sidebar.
Now that you have forwarded ports on the Billion Bipac 7560 you should test to see if your ports are forwarded correctly.
To test if your port has been properly forwarded, you can use our Network Utilities tool, which includes a free Open Port Checker. Our Open Port Check tool is the only online port checking tool with Guaranteed Results.
