Re: INFO: Port Triggering - What is it?

Hey thanks! I've only had my linky 4-porter for two weeks and was wondering how to use Port Triggering. I've setup the Quicktime player successfully.

App name: Quicktime
Trigger Port Range: 554
Incoming Port Range: 6970-6999

I have personally witnessed Quake 3 and Counter Strike successfully working from 2 PCs behind the router. Even if it's the same or different server on the Internet. I tested Quake 3, Counter Strike, and a mixture of both at the same time.
OK, confused me here... LOL

Say for Eg. HL.EXE XXXXX~XXXXX 27015~27016
(anyone know the xxxxx values, I would love to know)

In this instance, could two people play on the same internet server? I mean the incoming ports would be the same, correct? (The servers are set to come in on port 27015 in most cases)

Would the second system be able to access the same server that the first one was on (Or any server that was set to use port 27015 for incoming to the client for that matter)?

two separate PCs using the same trigger port will still work provided they use different range of port.

MstrBlstr,
Ok, here's what I know and have witnessed. I host LAN parties for my friends and I from time to time. I had no port forwarding or triggering rules in the Linksys. One person was playing HalfLife CS while another was playing Quake3 on the Internet. Now, another person joined a different Q3 server and both could still play. I could connect and play on either of the Q3 servers the other 2 were connected to.

Amazingly, Q3 worked fine for all 3 of us.

No one else tried to play CS, so I don't know if CS would work like Q3 did. For CS, I have heard the user has to use a different port on the client side, but the clients still have to connect to whatever port the server is using.

Plus, everyone (8 people) had ICQ 2000b running. All of us were actively online, and sending messages to each other. Other people that were on the Internet and not at the LAN party could send and receive messages from us too. No direct file transfers though because of no ports being forwarded.

azacamis,
Really?

Which firmware are you using? I cannot seem to make it work using the same trigger and different incoming ports with f/w 1.39 and 1.40.1.

I've tried the following:

28800-28800 ---> 2300-2400
28800-28800 ---> 47624-47624

The 2nd rule never gets forwarded to the same PC.
I have to add a real port forward rule.
If I make the 2nd rule #1, and make the 1st rule #2, then the 2300-2400 doesn't work..

I'll try again, if I finally get it to work, I'll update my above post.

Thanks

I find the same...

6660-6670 triggers 113 (mIRC IDENT)
6660-6670 triggers 50000-50005 (mIRC DCC)

...will NOT trigger both. But if the first line is "busy" (triggered) can another LAN PC get the 2nd one? THAT could be the case!

frosty, I hope that is not a typo but you cannot forward those ports to the same PC

Which ports?

Bill,
Good theory, but who knows?

Do you think it's possible to trigger another incoming range from the incoming ports of another rule?

Rule #1
28800-28800 ---> 2300-2400

Rule #2
2300-2400 -----> 47624-47624

Hmmmm....

This one I'm pretty sure of - only an outbound packet can trigger anything. If you find otherwise, it's probably another bug for the list.
