This guide will show you
how to enable port forwarding on the Asante FriendlyNET Cable/DSL Router
FR3000 Series. This article assumes that you already have the router
up and functioning.
To log into your router,
fire up your web browser and type in "192.168.123.254".
You should see the following
Type in the password to the
router and click "Login". You'll see the "Router Status" page.
Click on the "Advanced" button
at the top of the menu. You'll see this.
Scoll to the bottom of the
page where it says "Distributed Services Setup".
Here is where you enter the
port number you would like to forward. In our example, we'll open
up port 80 and port 25 and forward all requests to these ports to a server
located at "192.168.123.40". Make sure to check the "enable" box.
This is what our screen looks like.
Now click the "Apply New
Distributed Servers Setting" button. The page will automatically
refresh and you'll see the message in red that reads "Your Router must
be restarted for changes to take effect."
Now click the "Restart Router"
button. A dialog box will pop up asking you to confirm. Click
As the router restarts you'll
see this message:
Then the router will display
the router status page again. You can click "Log Out".
Now let's see if our ports
are really open or not. Go to the Test/Tools
section and do a port scan . You should see that the ports that you
just opened are in fact listed as open.
