A Hitron Technologies CODA-4589-RES router contains a basic firewall to help protect your home network. A Firewall blocks incoming connections by nature. Sometimes you need to unblock some of these connections so you can run a game or application. This is called opening a port or port forwarding. Port forwarding is literally forwarding a port from the internet to your home network.
In order to open ports in your Hitron Technologies CODA-4589-RES router, you need to:
- On the computer or device that you are forwarding ports to, you will need to set up a static IP address.
- Go ahead and log in to your Hitron Technologies CODA-4589-RES router.
- Find the Port Forwarding section in your Hitron Technologies CODA-4589-RES router.
- Click the Basic tab at the top of the screen.
- Find the Port Forwarding tab located near the center of the screen and click on it.
- Go ahead and create a Port Forwarding entry.
The process of opening ports in your Hitron Technologies CODA-4589-RES router may seem daunting. Remember, however, that you are not alone and do not have to feel discouraged. Let us walk you through the steps for opening ports in your router. Let's get this figured out!
Set up a static IP address in the device that you are forwarding a port to. This is an important step that keeps your ports open even after a reboot, power outage, or another type of device or router disconnect.

Hitron Technologies Usernames and Passwords
If the username or password did not work check out our Default Hitron Technologies Router Passwords page.
If you are unable to log in even after trying the above list of passwords you may need to consider a reset for your router. Our guide How to Reset a Router can help you with that. After resetting the Hitron Technologies CODA-4589-RES router your username and password will be reverted back to factory defaults.
After successfully logging in to your Hitron Technologies CODA-4589-RES router you should see the router's home page on your screen. Find the Port Forwarding section of your router.

- Find the Port Forwarding tab located near the center of the screen and click it.
You are now on the Port Forwarding page.
Make sure that you must open a port in your router before doing so since this will allow data to come through the firewall portion of your router to a specific device. It is possible that this could lead to malicious traffic on your network. However, don't let this warning stop you from making this change if you need it because the risk is very low.
Here are the ports to forward for Xbox Live:
- TCP Ports: 3074
- UDP Ports: 3074
If you are looking for the ports for a different application you can find it by either:
Click on the button that says Add Rule.
Make up a name to put in the Application Name box. The name does not have any effect on the functionality of the forward; it's simply there so you can know why it was created.
Use the Protocol dropdown box to select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding. If your router has the option of Both, then choose that. Otherwise, choose either TCP or UDP as needed. If you need to forward a port for both TCP and UDP and your router does not have Both, then you have to create two entries.
To forward a single port, enter the port number into the left Public Port and the right Public Port boxes. To forward a range of ports, enter the lowest number in the range into the left Public Port box. Then enter the highest number in the range into the right Public Port box.
Enter the same values into the Private Port boxes that you entered into the Public Port boxes.
Enter the IP address that you are forwarding ports to into the Local IP Address box. It is possible to forward a port to the IP address of your computer or to the IP address of a specific device on your internal network.
Set Remote IP Address to Any, unless you understand what it's for and have a reason to set it otherwise.
Make sure that the Status is toggled On.
To finish adding an entry, Click the button labeled Apply.
Remember to click the Save Changes button at the bottom of the page to apply these changes when you are completely finished.
