Port Triggering Guide
Note: An added benefit of Port Triggering is you do not need to worry about ip addresses.
When using port triggering with applications that don't make outbound
connections you can use my free
Port Triggering Initiator to make the connections to trigger the ports for you.
Open your favorite web browser and input your routers ip address in the address bar.
Please note that you must have the http:// in order to connect to your router/modem properly.

Some router/modems require a username and/or password, if yours requires it, enter the routers username and password here.
If you don't know it you can check our list of default router and modem password list here.
If you have changed it and don't remember it you may have to reset your device to factory default using the reset button on most routers.
Once logged into your router click on the "Applications & Gaming" tab.
Click 'Port Range Triggering'
Under 'Application Name' Give your entry a name, it must not be the same as any others on this page.

open the ports.
