Before attempting to configure port forwarding on the FiOS router, there is some information that you need to have in hand.

1. Computer/Device HOST name or IP Address if it is a static IP address
2. A list of the Port numbers and Protocols needed for the game, service or application

The Actiontec FiOS Routers have built in pre-configured rules for many of the common games, applications and services. It is a good practice to check the list before you begin to configure a new port forwarding rule. If the Protocol you need is not listed, you can create a custom rule using these directions. Any rule that you create will become part of the list and remain there until the router is Reset. (Resetting the router will restore all settings to default values and remove any custom rules that have been added. However, if you save a router Configuration file, it will create a backup of the router settings and any custom rules that have been added. That way if the router needs to be Reset or has already been Reset, it can quickly be reconfigured and lost port forwarding rules restored, by loading the saved Configuration file).
