Re: port forwarding by a router

If you do then there will be a ip address for local and one for wireless. Now there can be 2 for each of them depending on if you have ip4 and ip6 running. To set a static to the router. go to network and sharing center, tab to network connections. Arrow to local or wireless and hit application key, chose properties. now arrow to either ip4 or 6 depending on witch one you want to use. most common is ip4. Now write down all the settings. un check the get auto ip and fill in the manual ip settings with the ones you wrote down. now that comp will always default to that ip and the router will assign any that are not static open ips. you can only port forward from the router. The port settings in the firewall. Just make it easy for the program to get through the firewall.

For more info on forwarding ports go to,
http://www.portforward.com
it has many manuals on routers and how to do different things with them.

At 06:36 PM 9/10/2009, you wrote:
No I went to the windows firewall dialog on the control panel. The
exceptions tab has the port and program stuff. The most you can apparently
do there is specify programs and ports and scope (limiting access to certain
machines).
Not quite as detailed as admin tools.

I just discovered something.  I typed ipconfig to get my local ip address
and got 2 entries -- 192.168.1.100 and 102
The router is saying I'm 102 but the software I'm running says I'm 100.
What I think happened is that I have both the ethernet cable plugged in and
also my wireless adaptor turned on.
So my box has an evil twin...
How could that happen. I just need to poke around a little more.
Hopefully if there's someone else battling firewalls they can benefit...

Actually usign the advanced firewall under administrative options in control
panel, windows firewall with advanced security will let you make an inbound
and/or outbound rule. On win7 and I believe vista you can specify a port or
specify all ports as well as the protocol such as UDP or TCP/IP etc. Should
be the same for XP... Is this how you created the rule?
From this idea I take it that if you don't specify a port it'll default to
all, not sure though.

HTH, D!J!X!

Ok, I kind of figured that... (Darn.)
I have another question about the tangled logic of windows.  Actually it is
a simple yes/no question:
When I put a program on the windows firewall exceptions list on the control
panel, there is a button to add ports.  So I highlight the program I want to
tie to that port and press that button and type in a port number.  Actually
I do this twice for the 2 port numbers.
My question, does this limit that program to using only those ports?  What
happens if I just put the program name up and specify no ports? Is that a
special case that chooses port 80 or whatever?
I tried undid my configuration by hitting the delete button.  There were 3
entries for me to delete -- one for each of the ports I specified and a
third for the program name with no ports.  So what exactly did I have
configured with the 3 entries in the list?
I just like to be precise.  (I know, it's windows...) TIA --le

Unfortunately for most of these routers you'll have to specify an IP
address, the one that is assigned to your computer by the router. That way
those ports are only forwarded for your computer's IP. Yes, you'll have to
change this number if your IP changes. Unless you set up your router in a
static server format.

HTH, D!J!X!

Subject: port forwarding by a router

I have a program that I am trying to install that requires 2 ports to be
forwarded in my wireless router.  I did this with no trouble.
I also opened an exception for this program on my firewall, specify the same
protocol (UDP).
But when I run a firewall test it keeps failing.
Can anyone think of something else I'm not doing, or am doing wrong?
Thanx
