      Port Mapping

      Hi All,

      I've had a search and can't seem to find anything on this (or what I should be searching for).

      On my old Router I used to be able to set different external and internal ports for a service.

      Eg: The web interface of my NAS box works off port 5000, and I would like to set this to port 80 on the web (as the firewall at my office blocks port 5000).

      I've had a look on the Router and it says I can save changes to the uPnP table, but I can't see any way of editing it.

      Am I missing something obvious?

      Many thanks,

      You should be looking at Firewall Rules and Services to open a port. Have a look at PortForward.com - Free Help Setting up Your Router or Firewall for some guidance. Use the manual method or they want paid

      Re: Port Mapping

      I'm pretty sure the Netgears can't do port 'transformation' as you require - as the above link shows all they do is simple port forwarding.

      An internal server running iptables? Load custom firmware on the Netgear that includes this functionality?

      Re: Port Mapping

      Thanks GRM, looks like I'll have to have a play with the firmware.

      I did find this - How to enable Port Address Translation (PAT), but as you said it's Sagem only (all I got was the error "Usage: ping [OPTION]... host"). Anybody got something similar to work on the Netgear?
