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

After setting up a static ip address on your devices you need to login to your router.

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


192.168.42.1

Select the protocol that you are forwarding in the Protocol radio button.

If you need both TCP and UDP forwarded then you need to create a duplicate configuration. One configuration has TCP selected and the other one has have UDP selected.

If you are forwarding a range of ports separated by a hyphen then enter the lowest number of that range into the Port From box and the highest number of that range into the Port To box. If you are only forwarding a single port number then enter that number into both the Port From and the Port To boxes.

In the Map to Host Port box put the port to forward.
