1.Virtual Server Configuration

The D-Link DIR-601 can be configured as a virtual server so that remote users accessing Web or FTP services via the public IP address can be automatically redirected to local servers in the LAN (Local Area Network).

The D-Link DIR-601 firewall feature filters out unrecognized packets to protect your LAN network so all computers networked with the DIR-601 are invisible to the outside world. If you wish, you can make some of the LAN computers accessible from the Internet by enabling Virtual Server. Depending on the requested service, the D-Link DIR-601 redirects the external service request to the appropriate server within the LAN network.

The D-Link DIR-601 is also capable of port-redirection meaning incoming traffic to a particular port may be redirected to a different port on the server computer.


Each virtual service that is created will be listed at the bottom of the screen in the Virtual Servers List. There are pre-defined virtual services already in the table. You may use them by enabling them and assigning the server IP to use that particular virtual service.

This will allow you to open a single port. If you would like to open a range of ports, refer to the next page.



Enter a name for the rule or select an application from the drop-down menu. Select an application and click << to populate the fields.

IP Address:

Enter the IP address of the computer on your local network that you want to allow the incoming service to. If your computer is receiving an IP address automatically from the router (DHCP), you computer will be listed in the “Computer Name” drop-down menu. Select your computer and click <<. Private Port/Public Port: Enter the port that you want to open next to Private Port and Public Port. The private and public ports are usually the same. The public port is the port seen from the Internet side, and the private port is the port being used by the application on the computer within your local network. Protocol Type: Select TCP, UDP, or Both from the drop-down menu. Protocol Type:Select TCP, UDP, or Both from the drop-down menu. Inbound Filter: Select Allow All (most common) or a created Inbound filter. You may create your own inbound filters in the Advanced > Inbound Filter page.


The schedule of time when the Virtual Server Rule will be enabled. The schedule may be set to Always, which will allow the particular service to always be enabled. You can create your own times in the Tools > Schedules section.

2.DDNS Configuration

The DDNS feature allows you to host a server (Web, FTP, Game Server, etc…) using a domain name that you have purchased (www.whateveryournameis.com) with your dynamically assigned IP address. Most broadband Internet Service Providers assign dynamic (changing) IP addresses. Using a DDNS service provider, your friends can enter in your domain name to connect to your server no matter what your IP address is.


Enable DDNS: Check to enable DDNS.

Server Address:Choose your DDNS provider from the drop down menu.

Username or Key:Enter the Username for your DDNS account.

Password or Key:Enter the Password for your DDNS account.

Timeout:Enter a time (in hours).

Status:Displays the current connection status to your DDNS server.

This article applies to the D-Link DSR-250N / DSR-500 / 500N / 1000 / 1000N:

Symptom: You cannot access the router‘s web-configuration interface from a PC on your LAN.

Recommended action:

1. Check the Ethernet connection between the PC and the D-Link router.

2. Ensure that your PC‘s IP address is on the same subnet as the router. If you are using the recommended addressing scheme, your PC‘s address should be in the range to

3. Check your PC‘s IP address. If the PC cannot reach a DHCP server, some versions of Windows and Mac OS generate and assign an IP address. These auto-generated addresses are in the range 169.254.x.x. If your IP address is in this range, check the connection from the PC to the firewall and reboot your PC.

4. If your DSR Series router‘s IP address has changed and you don‘t know what it is, reset the router configuration to factory defaults (this sets the firewall‘s IP address to

5. If you do not want to reset to factory default settings and lose your configuration, reboot the router and use a packet sniffer (such as Ethereal™) to capture packets sent during the reboot. Look at the Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) packets to locate the router‘s LAN interface address.

6. Launch your browser and ensure that Java, JavaScript, or ActiveX is enabled. If you are using Internet Explorer, click Refresh to ensure that the Java applet is loaded. Close the browser and launch it again.

7. Ensure that you are using the correct login information. The factory default login name is admin and the password is password. Ensure that CAPS LOCK is off when entering this information.

Symptom: D-Link Router does not save configuration changes.

Recommended action:

1. When entering configuration settings, click Apply before moving to another menu or tab; otherwise your changes are lost.

2. Click Refresh or Reload in the browser. Your changes may have been made, but the browser may be caching the old configuration.

Symptom: Router cannot access the Internet.

Possible cause: If you use dynamic IP addresses, your router may not have requested an IP address from the ISP.
Recommended action:

1. Launch your browser and go to an external site such as www.google.com.

2. Access the firewall‘s configuration main menu at

3. Select Monitoring > Router Status.

4. Ensure that an IP address is shown for the WAN port. If is shown, your firewall has not obtained an IP address from your ISP. See the next symptom.

Symptom: Router cannot obtain an IP address from the ISP.

Recommended action:

1. Turn off power to the cable or DSL modem.

2. Turn off the router.

3. Wait 5 minutes, and then reapply power to the cable or DSL modem.

4. When the modem LEDs indicate that it has resynchronized with the ISP, reapply power to the router. If the router still cannot obtain an ISP address, see the next symptom.

Symptom: Router still cannot obtain an IP address from the ISP.

Recommended action:

1. Ask your ISP if it requires a login program — PPP over Ethernet (PPPoE) or some other type of login.

2. If yes, verify that your configured login name and password are correct.

3. Ask your ISP if it checks for your PC’s hostname.

4. If yes, select Network Configuration > WAN Settings > Ethernet ISP Settings and set the account name to the PC hostname of your ISP account.

5. Ask your ISP if it allows only one Ethernet MAC address to connect to the Internet, and therefore checks for your PC‘s MAC address.

6. If yes, inform your ISP that you have bought a new network device, and ask them to use the firewall‘s MAC address.

7. Alternatively, select Network Configuration > WAN Settings > Ethernet ISP Settings and configure your router to spoof your PC‘s MAC address.

Symptom: Router can obtain an IP address, but PC is unable to load Internet pages.

Recommended action:

1. Ask your ISP for the addresses of its designated Domain Name System (DNS) servers. Configure your PC to recognize those addresses. For details, see your operating system documentation.

2. On your PC, configure the router to be its TCP/IP gateway.
