      Portforwarding on sagem fast2504n problems

      Hi i hope someone can help me. I am trying to forward some ports in my router (sagem fast2504n) i am pretty sure i am doing this right. I have even used simple port forwarding tool and have given my ps3 and pc a static ip but all ports always fail. Any ideas is there a firewall blocking my router i cant find any firewall in router settings.

      The first thing you need to do for port forwarding is to create a firewall custom service for the port you wish to open, then you need to create a firewall rule based on the custom service you have just set-up. Is this how you have done this?

      Once you are logged into your Sky router, click on the 'Security' tab, then click on 'Services', then click 'Add custom service'. In the first box just give the service a name (you will need this name later), then select the type from the drop down box (if you are not sure select 'TCP/UDP'), enter the actual port number you wish to open in the next box (if it's just 1 port just enter the number into the start box, if it's a range of sequential port numbers enter the start and finish ports numbers'). Click 'Apply' to save it (and just hope your 2504 saves it as it sometimes doesn't). If it has saved it correctly you will now see your custom service in a table. If you need to open other ports that are not sequential, you need to create a separate custom service for each one.

      Next click on 'Firewall Rules' as you now also need a create a rule based on the custom service you have just set-up. Depending on what you need, you now select either outbound or inbound (or both, if you need a 2 way connection). I'll start with outbound. Click on 'Add' below where it says 'Outbound' From the drop down list select your newly created service, it should be at the top of the list, select it. Next box change to 'ALLOW always'. You can also specify which LAN users (i.e. internal IP address) you want this service to come from or just leave this as 'Any' to work with every LAN user. Leave to WAN users box as 'Any'. Just click apply to save it.

      Do the same thing for inbound as well. Select the custom service from the list, select 'ALLOW always' and again if required specify a LAN user (the IP address of the device you want the service to operate with). Again leave the WAN users as 'Any'. Click apply.

      I *think* you then have to re-boot the router for these changes to kick in (although not sure about that).

      If you need a working example, I can upload some screen shots. I don't use a PS3, but have set up port forwarding here to allow me to remotely access my Apple Time Capsule HDD.

      If you are only forwarding one port and not a range, put the same port number in both Start and Finishing or it will not save.

      Are you using a PC to check if the ports are open? If so make sure that the Windows or other software firewall is disabled or it will block connection attempts.

      I am not sure you can use ports 80 and 443 as you want as these are reserved for HTTP and HTTPS.

      If this is just for a PS3, try putting its address in the DMZ of the Sky router. I don't think there is much of a security risk with a gaming console.
