How to set up Virtual Server/ Port Forwarding on ASUS Wireless Router?

 


1. Router WAN IP address – This is the IP address provided by your ISP to access the Internet.  This WAN IP address will also be used to access the PC providing the service.  In this example, the Router WAN IP address is “123.123.123.123”.

2. Router LAN IP address – The default IP address of your ASUS router is “192.168.1.1”.

3. For personal use – This computer has been assigned a LAN IP address of “192.168.1.130” by the router.  This PC does not provide any network service.

4. Server LAN IP address – This PC is assigned a static LAN IP Address of “192.168.1.103”.

This is the server PC that provides network services to other clients on the Internet.  Port forwarding will be applied to this PC.

To set up Port Forwarding:

Launch a browser and access router settings by keying in LAN IP address or http://router.asus.com on the address bar.

Click “WAN” on the Advanced Settings menu on the left panel.

Click the “Virtual Server/Port Forwarding” tab.

To set up Port Forwarding for a FTP server:

Before setting up port forwarding for a FTP server, a PC on the Internet cannot connect to the FTP server.

Under the Basic Config section, select “FTP” from the “Famous Server List” item.  Input a port or port range for the FTP server and select the Local IP.

In this example, the Server LAN IP address is “192.168.1.103“.

Click on “Edit” and then click on “Apply“.

Note:  Do not use the port range 20:21 for an FTP server if the AiDisk service on the router has been enabled. 

 

The FTP server is now running using the following settings:
Host: 123.123.123.123
Port: 2021

Source Target 

Rules that only the IP address can be forwarded for the match port

For Source IP address, you can:

  • (a)   Leave it empty. Unspecified, that is, any source IP can.
  • (b)   Enter a specific IP address, such as “192.168.122.1”
  • (c)    Enter IP address within one subnet or the same IP pool, such as “192.168.123.*”, or “192.168.*.*” or “*.*.*.*”

To check if Port Forwarding has successfully been configured for a FTP server:

  1. Ensure that your FTP server is set up and running.
  2. You will need a PC outside your LAN but has Internet access (hereafter referred to as “Internet PC”).  This PC should not be connected to the ASUS router in any way.
  3. On the Internet PC, use the router’s WAN IP to access the FTP server using a FTP application or FTP browser.  If port forwarding has been successful, you should be able to access the files on the FTP server.

 

To set up port forwarding for a HTTP server:

Before setting up port forwarding for an HTTP server, a PC on the Internet cannot connect to your server/PC via HTTP.

Under the Basic Config section, select “HTTP” from the “Famous Server List” item.  Input a port or port range for the HTTP server and select the Local IP.

In this example, the Server LAN IP address is “192.168.1.103“.

Click on “Edit” and then click on “Apply“.

The HTTP server is now running using the following settings:
Host: 123.123.123.123
Port: 80

Source Target: Rules that only the IP address can be forwarded for the match port

For Source IP address, you can:

  • (a)   Leave it empty. Unspecified, that is, any source IP can.
  • (b)   Enter a specific IP address, such as “192.168.122.1”
  • (c)    Enter IP address within one subnet or the same IP pool, such as “192.168.123.*”, or “192.168.*.*” or “*.*.*.*”

 

To check if port forwarding has successfully been configured for an HTTP server:

  1. Ensure that your HTTP server is set up and running.
  2. You will need a PC outside your LAN but has Internet access (hereafter referred to as “Internet PC”).  This PC should not be connected to the ASUS router in any way.
  3. On the Internet PC, launch a web browser and key in the router’s WAN IP address on the address bar.  If port forwarding has been successful, you should be able to access the web page provided by the HTTP server.

**If you want to forward a port range, for example 10200:10300, to a PC which is using the same port range, enter the service name, port range, and local IP address, but leave the local port blank.

When you use the Virtual Server, Port Forwarding, or Remote Administration features to open specific ports to traffic from the Internet, you could be increasing the exposure of your LAN to cyberattacks from the Internet.

In these cases, you can use Inbound Filters to limit that exposure by specifying the IP addresses of internet hosts that you trust to access your LAN through the ports that you have opened. You might, for example, only allow access to a game server on your home LAN from the computers of friends whom you have invited to play the games on that server.

Inbound Filters can be used for limiting access to a server on your network to a system or group of systems. Filter rules can be used with Virtual Server, Gaming, or Remote Administration features. Each filter can be used for several functions; for example a “Game Clan” filter might allow all of the members of a particular gaming group to play several different games for which gaming entries have been created. At the same time an “Admin” filter might only allows systems from your office network to access the WAN admin pages and an FTP server you use at home. If you add an IP address to a filter, the change is effected in all of the places where the filter is used.

Below is a list of each option with a description of its use:

DIR-868L-Inbound-Filter

Add/Edit Inbound Filter Rule
Here you can add entries to the Inbound Filter Rules List below, or edit existing entries.

Name
Enter a name for the rule that is meaningful to you.

Action
The rule can either Allow or Deny messages.

Source IP Range
Define the ranges of Internet addresses this rule applies to. For a single IP address, enter the same address in both the Start and End boxes. Up to eight ranges can be entered. The Enable checkbox allows you to turn on or off specific entries in the list of ranges.

Save
Saves the new or edited Inbound Filter Rule in the following list. When finished updating the Inbound Filter Rules List, you must still click the Save Settings button at the top of the page to make the changes effective and permanent.

Inbound Filter Rules List
The section lists the current Inbound Filter Rules. An Inbound Filter Rule can be changed by clicking the Edit icon, or deleted by clicking the Delete icon. When you click the Edit icon, the item is highlighted, and the “Edit Inbound Filter Rule” section is activated for editing.

In addition to the filters listed here, two predefined filters are available wherever inbound filters can be applied:

Allow All
Permit any WAN user to access the related capability.

Deny All
Prevent all WAN users from accessing the related capability. (LAN users are not affected by Inbound Filter Rules.)
