I need to set up a server behind my Router


Recommended Posts

To use a server like a web, ftp, or mail server, you need to know the respective port numbers they are using.

For example, port 80 (HTTP) is used for web; port 21 (FTP) is used for FTP, and port 25 (SMTP outgoing) and

port 110 (POP3 incoming) are used for the mail server. You can get more information by viewing the

documentation provided with the server you installed. Follow these steps to set up port forwarding through

the Router’s Web-based Utility. We will be setting up web, ftp, and mail servers.

  1. Access the Router’s Web-based Utility by going to or the IP address of the Router. Go
  2. to the Applications & Gaming => Port Range Forwarding tab.
  3. Enter any name you want to use for the Application.
  4. Enter the port range of the service you are using. For example, if you have a web server, you would enter
  5. the range 80 to 80.
  6. Select the protocol you will be using, TCP or UDP, or select Both.
  7. Enter the IP address of the PC or network device that you want the port server to go to. For example, if the
  8. web server’s Ethernet adapter IP address is, you would enter 100 in the field provided.
  9. Check “Appendix C: Finding the MAC Address and IP Address for Your Ethernet Adapter†for details on
  10. getting an IP address.
  11. Check the Enabled option for the port services you want to use. Consider the examples below:


When you have completed the configuration, click the Save Settings button.
