For most cases, UPnP, which is turned on by default on your device, will suffice to take care of forwarding the correct ports to your device.
Nevertheless, some applications require port-forwarding to be enabled manually on the router.
Log into your router
In order to configure this connect to your router on http://192.168.100.1
- Username: root
- Password: <MAC address of your router>
Navigate to port-forwarding section
Once connected put the 'Forwarding Rules' tab at the top and select 'Port Mapping Configuration' on the left menu after this.
Create a new port forwarding entry by selecting 'New'.
Enter a name for the port-forwarding entry and the IP address of your device (192.168.100.x) and select 'Add'.
You have configured a internal device now to which you can attach multiple port mappings.
- Select Protocol
- Provide the internal port range
- Provide the external port range
- Apply these setting
And you're done.
