      SR101 Port Mapping... Help!

      Hi, on my old NetGear Sky router I was able to map external ports to internal ports during the port forwarding definition.
      So, for example the two webcams I have with HTTP servers in their firmware, both serving at port 80 could be mapped to two different ports (eg 8081 & 8082) on the external address, and then these point to port 80 and two different internal IPs.

      Having moved house and switched to fibre, and being provided with a new SR101 I find that I can port forward a port, but not map it to a new one. This is a bit of a disaster as I can't modify the camera firmware to use different ports, not to mention a couple of other fixed port 80 devices that I have.

      Am I missing something? This is such a basic feature of a router I can only assume I'm being some kind of loon, and there's a simple setting I'm missing.

      If not is there an alternative?

      The process of redirecting an incoming port is typically not a feature that you find on most domestic routers now. It is something that you tend to find on routers intended for businesses.

      You will need to change the port numbers on your web cams.

      Once you have done this, please use the guide here to help: Port forwarding - Setting up Port forwarding (use existing & set up custom services)
