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.

D-Link-DIR-601-Virtual-Server

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.

D-Link-DIR-601-DDNS

Name:

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.

Schedule:

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.

If you are connecting the D-Link router DIR-601 to another router to use as a wireless access point and/or switch, you will have to do the following before connecting the router to your network:

• Disable UPnP
• Disable DHCP
• Change the LAN IP address to an available address on your network. The LAN ports on the router cannot accept a DHCP address from your other router.

To connect to another router, please follow the steps below:

1. Plug the power into the router. Connect one of your computers to the router (LAN port) using an Ethernet cable. Make sure your IP address on the computer is 192.168.0.xxx (where xxx is between 2 and 254). Please see the Networking Basics section for more information. If you need to change the settings, write down your existing settings before making any changes. In most cases, your computer should be set to receive an IP address automatically in which case you will not have to do anything to your computer.

2. Open a web browser and enter http://192.168.0.1 and press Enter. When the login window appears, set the user name to Admin and leave the password box empty. Click Log In to continue.

3. Click on Advanced and then click Advanced Network. Uncheck the Enable UPnP checkbox. Click Save Settings to continue.

4. Click Setup and then click Network Settings. Uncheck the Enable DHCP Server server checkbox. Click Save Settings to continue.

5. Under Router Settings, enter an available IP address and the subnet mask of your network. Click Save Settings to save your settings. Use this new IP address to access the configuration utility of the router in the future. Close the browser and change your computer’s IP settings back to the original values as in Step 1.

6. Disconnect the Ethernet cable from the router and reconnect your computer to your network.

7. Connect an Ethernet cable in one of the LAN ports of the router and connect it to your other router. Do not plug anything into the Internet port of the D-Link router.

8. You may now use the other 3 LAN ports to connect other Ethernet devices and computers. To configure your wireless network, open a web browser and enter the IP address you assigned to the router. Refer to the Configuration and Wireless Security sections for more information on setting up your wireless network.

To all having problems with the D-Link DIR-601 router, just put dd-wrt firmware and everything will be solved I did and 2 problems are now solved without changing any setting in the router.

Download this Firmware file:

ftp://dd-wrt.com/others/eko/BrainSlayer-V24-preSP2/2011/02-17-11-r16214/dlink-dir601a1/dir601a1-factory-to-ddwrt-firmware.bin

1.Plug a cable into the LAN port of your router. Never upgrade except with a LAN cable connected to your router from your computer, and make sure your firewall, virus protection and wireless are OFF in your computer.

2.On your router, hold the reset button down for 30 seconds. Power light should turn orange and then after you let go of the reset button, after a few minutes, all lights should return to normal.

3.Set a static IP on your computer of 192.168.0.9. If you don’t know how to do this, you should not be messing with third party firmware.

4.Login to the router at 192.168.0.1. Admin is username and password is left blank. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE RETURNED TO FACTORY DEFAULTS.

5.Go to the firmware upgrade page. Select the dir601a1-factory-to-ddwrt-firmware.bin that you downloaded earlier to upgrade

6.Hit UPGRADE.

7.WAIT FOR THREE MINUTES WITHOUT TOUCHING ANYTHING. TIME THIS!

8.An orange soccer ball like icon will light on the front of your router and this will stay lit.

9.Change your computer IP back to AUTO IP and AUTO dns.

10.Check your LAN connection status. You should have an IP on your computer in the 192.168.1.xxx range.

10.Logon to your dir-601 router at 192.168.1.1.

11.SELECT the username (make ALL the dots blue highlighted) and enter one that you will remember.

12.Select the password and enter one that you will remember, and then enter these and go in and configure your router.

If you forget the password,you can see :

Restore to Factory Firmware:

* set your computer’s ip manually to: 192.168.0.X (not 1) AND set your subnet mask to 255.255.255.0.
* unplug the power cable to the D-Link router.
* press the reset button and plug in the power cable when the power led flashes orange release the reset.
* go to 192.168.0.1
* Upload your original firmware and wait.
* After update, the factory firmware saved my old settings so I connected to my previously set router IP.
