Siemens GigasetSX763 routers include a very basic firewall that helps protect your home network form unwanted access from the internet. Since this firewall blocks incoming connections you may need open a port through it for certain games and applications. This process of opening a port is frequently called a port forward, since you are forwarding a port from the internet to your home network.
The basic process to open a port is:
While these steps might seem difficult at first, we will walk you through each step for your Siemens GigasetSX763 router.
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.
Now we are going to login to your Siemens GigasetSX763 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.
Open up your web browser and find the address bar. It should look something like this:
In the picture above the address bar has 192.168.2.1 in it. Just replace all of that with the IP address of your Siemens GigasetSX763 router. Your router's IP address can also be refered to as your computer's default gateway.
By default the IP address is set to: 192.168.2.1
After entering the IP address of your router you can simply press enter. If all goes well you will see the following screen:
You should see a box prompting you for your username and password.
Enter your username and password, and then click the Login button to log in to your Siemens GigasetSX763 router.

If your username and password do not work then please visit our Default Siemens Router Passwords page.
If you still can't login to your router because you forgot your Siemens GigasetSX763 router username and password, use our How to Reset a Router Password guide to set your Siemens GigasetSX763 router back to its factory settings.
Now we need to find the port forwarding section in your router. Here's how you do it. Starting from the first page in your router:
Click the Advanced Settings button near the top of the page.
Click the Internet link near the left of the page.
You should now see a new menu. In this new menu, click Address Translation (NAT).
You should now see a new menu. In this new menu, click Port Forwarding.
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:
Select the protocol type of the ports you are forwarding from the Protocol box.
Put the same port number into both the Public port and the Local port boxes.
Enter the IP address that you want to forward these ports to into the Local IP address box. Note that if you are forwarding ports so you can run a program on a device other than your computer then you can enter your device's IP address into that box instead.
You need to name this entry in the Comment box. The name does not make any difference in the forward; it's just there so that you can remember later why you setup this forward.
In the Enabled checkbox put a checkmark.
Click the Add button when you are finished.
When you're finished, click Ok near the bottom of the screen to save your changes.
Now that you have forwarded ports on the Siemens GigasetSX763 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.
We also have the Internets largest collection of Router Screenshots.
