How do I setup port-forwarding on my router?

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

Login with:

  • Username: root
  • Password: <MAC address of your router>

Enter a name for the port-forwarding entry and the IP address of your device (192.168.100.x) and select 'Add'.
