This is an important feature that helps you to control which applications have access to your network.

Telekom Username and Password Trouble
If the username and password that you typed in did not work, check out our Default Telekom Router Passwords page for other ideas about possible passwords.
If, after trying the above list of passwords you still can't log in, you may need to reset your router. Learn how to do that by reading our How to Reset a Router guide. After resetting the Telekom Speedport W 724V router your username and password are reverted back to factory defaults. Router settings may also change when you reset, so make a note of your current router settings before you reset.
Step 3 - Find The Port Forwarding Section
You should be on the home page of your Telekom Speedport W 724V router once you have successfully logged in. Find the Port Forwarding section of your router.
- Find the Internet tab at the top of the screen and click it.
- Find the Port activation link at the left of the screen and click on it.
You should now be on a page called Settings for activating the port.
Step 4 - Create A Port Forward Entry
Opening a port to a specific device may solve problems that you are having on your network. Make sure that it is necessary though, before opening a port, because you are effectively creating a pinhole in the firewall portion of your router that could lead to malicious traffic on your network. The risk is exceedingly low, though, so don't let this warning stop you from making this change if you need it.
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:
If it's not already, go ahead and expand the Port diversions and port forwarding section.
To create a TCP entry click on the Create other TCP diversion link, or click on the Create other UDP diversion link to create a UDP entry.
If you are forwarding a single port, enter that port number into the left public port and the right public port boxes. If you are forwarding a range of ports, enter the lowest number of that range into the left public port box. Then enter the highest number of that range into the right public port box.
Enter the exact same values that you put in the left public port box, into the client port box.
Enter the IP address that you are forwarding ports to into the device 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.
Make sure to click the Save button at the bottom of the page to apply these changes, when you are completely finished.
