How do I configure port forwarding on my DIR router?

Example: To set up an FTP server
Step 1: Open your web browser and enter http://dlinkrouter or http://dlinkrouter.local or into the address bar.

Step 2: The default username is Admin and the default password is blank (nothing). Click Login.

Step 3: Click the Advanced tab on top and then click Port Forwarding on the left side.


Step 4: Check the box beside the rule to enable the rule. For pre-defined applications, use the Application Name dropdown list and click on the arrow button next to the dropdown list to auto-fill the appropriate field. For non-pre-defined applications, please enter the desired port.

Step 5: Select the computer or device from the list of DHCP clients in the Computer Name dropdown list or manually enter the IP address of the device you want to open the specified port for.

Step 6: Click on Save Settings when finished.
