The Sagemcom Livebox 4 routers have a firewall that helps protect the home network from unwanted Internet access. The firewall does this by blocking incoming connections you may need opened for a better gaming or application experience. In order to open additional connections or ports you need to create what is called a port forward.

In this guide I will show you how to port forward on the Sagemcom Livebox 4 router. The steps I will be covering 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!

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.

This step is important because you want a permanent IP address in your device. If you do not set up a permanent IP address in your device, then when you device reboots it may get a new IP address.

Use a VPN Instead

Have you considered using a VPN instead of forwarding a port? For most users, a VPN is a much simpler and more secure choice than forwarding a port.

NordVPN is the fastest VPN!

We use and recommend NordVPN because not only is it the fastest VPN, it includes a new feature called Meshnet that makes forwarding a port no longer necessary for most applications. With NordVPN Meshnet, you can connect to your devices from anywhere in the world, completely secure, over a highly encrypted VPN tunnel.

Every time you click on one of our affiliate links, such as NordVPN, we get a little kickback for introducing you to the service. Think of us as your VPN wingman.

TIP: Write this static IP address down, you need it in step 4.

Step 2

Your Sagemcom Livebox 4 uses a web interface meaning you need to open a web browser to access the router interface. It typically doesn't matter what browser you decide to use, I recommend picking the one you are most comfortable with such as Chrome, Internet Explorer or Firefox.

After opening the chosen web browser, find the address bar. This is normally at the top of the page like this:

Above is an example of what a web browser address bar looks like. Find the address bar in your router and type in your router's IP address.

The default Sagemcom Livebox 4 IP Address is:

If everything works like it should you will see a login screen similar to the one below:

Sagemcom Livebox 4 default login
Sagemcom Livebox 4 default login.

If you don't see a login screen then something obviously did not go right. The most likely scenario is the router's IP address has been changed. Follow the directions on our How To Find Your Router's IP Address page to find out what it has been changed to.

You should see a space for a username and password.

After you have entered the router's username and password, go ahead and press the OK button to continue.

Having Trouble?

This is a pretty common place to get stuck. If you find yourself here, don't panic, there are a few things you can try:

  • First, check all the different Sagemcom default combinations. Here is our list of all known Default Sagemcom Router Passwords.
  • Second, try and guess what the password/username was changed to. Use our Find Password App to make this step easier.
  • Finally, if you still are stuck after trying both of the above options, it may be time to consider a factory reset. Learn more about this option on the How to Reset a Router page.

Step 3

It is now time to find the port forwarding page of the Sagemcom Livebox 4 router. To help you do this we begin on the My Favorites page:

Sagemcom Livebox 4 My Favorites
Sagemcom Livebox 4 My Favorites.

Begin by clicking the Gear option at the bottom of the page.

Sagemcom Livebox 4 Advanced Parameters.

This opens the Advanced Parameters screen.

Select the option labeled Network.

Sagemcom Livebox 4 DHCP
Sagemcom Livebox 4 DHCP.

You should now see a page like the one above. Click the tab labeled NAT/PAT

Sagemcom Livebox 4 NAT PAT

Congratulations, you have navigated to the port forwarding page.

Make up a name to put in the Application / service 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.

Enter the same port number to be forwarded into the Internal port and the External port boxes.

From the Protocol box select the protocol for the ports that you want to forward.

Use the Equipment box to choose a device to forward ports to. This box contains a list of device names that are visible on your network.

Click the Create button when you are finished.

That's it. Your ports should now be forwarded.

Are your the ports you just forwarded really open? An easy way to find out is use our free Open Port Checker. It uses a local application to see if the ports are open or not. This guarantees our port checkers accuracy.
