If you have a server in your home network, you can allow certain types of incoming traffic to reach the server. For example, you might want to make a local web server, FTP server, or game server visible and available to the Internet.
The router can forward incoming traffic with specific protocols to computers on your local network. You can specify the servers for applications and you can also specify a default DMZ server to which the router forwards all other incoming protocols.
To forward specific incoming protocols:
- Decide which type of service, application, or game you want to provide.
- Find the local IP address of the server on your network that provides the service.
The server must always have the same IP address. To specify this setting, use the reserved IP address feature.
- Launch a web browser from a WiFi-enabled computer or mobile device that is connected to the network.
- Enter orbilogin.com.
The login window opens.
- Enter the router user name and password.
The user name is admin. The default password is password. The user name and password are case sensitive.
The BASIC Home page displays.
- Select ADVANCED > Advanced Setup > Port Forwarding/Port Triggering.
- Leave the Port Forwarding radio button selected as the service type.
- In the Service Name list, select the service name.
If the service that you want to add is not in the list, create a custom service.
- In the Server IP Address field, enter the IP address of the computer that provides the service.
- Click the Add button.
The service displays in the list.
