To allow traffic from the internet to enter your local network, you will need to open up ports or the router will block the request.

Because our routers use NAT (Network Address Translation), you can only open a specific port or ports to one computer at a time. For example: If you have 2 web servers on your network, you cannot open port 80 to both computers. You will need to configure 1 of the web servers to use port 81. Now you can open port 80 to the first computer and then open port 81 to the other computer.

For the DI-514, DI-524, DI-604, DI-614+, DI-624, DI-704P (revC), DI-704UP, DI-754, DI-764, DI-774, and DI-784:

Step 1: Open your web browser and enter the IP address of your D-Link router ( Enter username (admin) and your password (blank by default).

Step 2: Click on the Advanced tab at the top and then click Virtual Server on the left side.

Step 3: Check Enabled to activate entry.

Step 4: Enter a name for your virtual server entry.

Step 5: Next to Private IP, enter the IP address of the computer on your local network that you want to allow the incoming service to.

Step 7: Enter the port information 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 WAN side, and the private port is the port being used by the application on the computer within your local network.

Step 8: Enter the Schedule information.

Step 9: Click Apply and then click Continue.

For DI-704P (rev.B), DI-707P, DI-714P+, DI-804HV, DI-808HV, and DI-824VUP users:

Step 1: Open a web browser and enter the IP address of your router ( Enter admin for your username and then your password (blank by default).

Step 2: Click on the Advanced tab and then Virtual Server on the left side.

Next to Service Ports, enter the port or range of ports you want to open.
Next to Service IP, enter the IP address of the computer you want to open the port to.

    3. Then enter the full domain name and your account info.


    4. Go to “Objects” → “Address book”, previously, we use an IP on the remote gateway, here, just change the IP to the domain name, here we assume the other side (DI-804HV also uses DDNS and has the domain test1.dyndns.org setup). Click on the “remote-gw” object, and modify the IP to “dns:test1.dyndns.org”. Make sure “dns:” is entered before the domain name.


    5. In DI-804HV, just replace the remote gateway IP to the DDNS domain name we set up in D-Link DFL-800 (test.dyndns.org)
