This guide will show you
how to enable and configure port forwarding on the D-Link 704P Cable/DSL
Residential Gateway. I assume that you already have the router up
and running before you try to open up port forwarding.
To log into your router,
fire up your web browser and type in "192.168.0.1".
You should see the following
Type in the password to the
router and click "Login". You'll see the "Device Information" page.
Click on the "Advanced" button
at the bottom of the menu. You'll see this.
If your router doesn't automatically
go to the "Virtual Server" page, click on that link at the bottom of the
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 "192.168.0.40". Make sure to check the "enable" box.
This is what our screen looks like.
Scroll to the bottom of the
screen and click on the "Save" button.
The page will refresh automatically.
Scroll to the bottom of the screen once again and you'll see the message
"Saved! The change doesn't take effective until rebooting!".

Now click on the "Reboot"
button. A dialog box will ask "Reboot right now?". Click "OK".
As the router restarts you'll
see this message:
Then the router will display
the Device Information 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.
