Re: [Help Me] Need help opening ports on DIR-632

Its not the router that is making it hard to be honest, but the DVR. See if you change the port on the DVR first, before the forward and firewall exception, it just reverts to the old port.

So first, I would suggest a Factory reset so we are back to default. No possible conflicts.

Second, set the DVR to DHCP and let it sit a couple minuets until you have a IP, then set that IP as static. Then go into the router and set a DHCP reservation for that IP.

Third, set up 3 "Application Rules" for 80,67, and 46868(Tigger and firewall being the same, type Both, and be sure to check off the check box). 46868 is in the private range so won't be used by anything else, and not one likly to be scanned by trojans and backdoors.

Next, Set up 3 port forwarding rules for 80,67 and 46868 to the x.x.x.x you have the DVR DHCP reservation set up for. (Both TCP and UDP, be sure to check the check box)

Now, go into the DVR and change port 68 to 46868. Make sure it keeps, even after a reboot. Then make sure you can access it from local 192 IP. Also, on that same local computer, go to »www.whatismyip.com/ and check your WAN IP. Then try to access that IP either straight x.x.x.x or x.x.x.x:80.

If that doesn't work, I give up.

Well, I followed your instructions in detail. The biggest problem is that the router will not allow both port forwarding and application rules. I keep getting a conflict error code so i tried both, one at a time, no luck at all. I can still get local if I edit the port number on the logon window but nothing from outside. All the resets I did triggered a new incoming IP but I caught that.
I don't know if it's the answer but I'm really getting fed up with this router. In addition to these issues, it keeps losing synch and I have to keep rebooting to get logged in again. I'm thinking I might go router shopping again and get a better one.
I don't want to have to replace the DVR just for this but I may end up having to.

Well Im out of ideas. Sorry. If another router will work better for you, buy another router. Good luck.

I wanted to let you know that I picked up an EA2700 Linksys router, hooked it up, did a little exploring in the settings and got it working myself, using port 68.

I think it's just something with these D-link routers.
Thanks again for all your help.

It really isn't. I have personally set up...a couple hundred Dlink routers with port forwarding for everything from Minecraft servers, to web servers. Maybe there was something bad with that one unit, thats possible. Anyway, glad you got it working. Have a good night.
