How do I setup Port Forwarding (open up ports) on my Linksys Router?
Open your web browser and go to http://192.168.1.1. When prompted for a User Name and Password, leave the user name blank and type in the password of admin. Click the OK button. Click on the Applications & Gaming tab and ensure Port Range Forward is selected. Fill in the information using the following guidelines: Application: Type in the name of what program you are using. Start/End: Type in the ports you are needing forwarded. The RED example uses one specific port, whereas the GREEN example uses a port range. Protocol: Select TCP, UDP, or Both. IP address: Type in the IP address of the computer on your network that will be receiving the port traffic. Enable: Enables or disables this port forwarding rule. When you are finished, click Save Settings. Port forwarding should now be enabled and set up on your Linksys router.

If you have any further questions about port forwarding on your Linksys router, please contact Linksys technical support at 1-800-326-7114, or go to their support forum database at http://forums.linksys.com/.
