    D-Link Dl-604 Router Forwarding HELP!

    Hey

    Can someone give me a heads up as to how to forward ports for a D-Link Dl-604 router.

    Is it under Advanced > Firewall ?

    If so..

    Can someone explain the source and destination parts.
    Source would mean external ip?
    Destination would be internal comp ip, but it has a range, so can i say 192.168.0.100 to 192.168.0.101 so that both comps can use that port? And what is tcp/udp/icmp/* used for.

    Thanks, help is very much apprecialted.

    The source IP and port represents the origin of the packet. Generally you don't care about the origin IP because you want to forward all traffic for a given port. It is the port that determins what service is being requested or application to send to packet to. See a list of common ports here.

    For normal use you forward all incoming traffic for a given port to a private IP address and port. You cannot forward a single packet to several PCs. A typical forwarding entry would be to forward all incoming traffic on port 80 regardless of the IP to a private network PC at 192.168.x.x port 80. This allows a webserver behind the router to receive and respond to http requests.

    I don't have a D-Link box so I can't tell you where the menu items are located.

    Thanks, I noticed the forwarding didn't work at first, but after updating firmware from 2.02 to 2.18 everything started to work.
