How To Do Virtual Server Router Setup?

Virtual Server on the router is nothing but, Port Forwarding a single external port to the internal port, within the LAN network. Using a single IP address for multiple devices on the LAN, you are hiding the original router address. When the external device sends data to the router, the router directs it to the specific port while hiding the actual port name. The following steps help to do virtual server router setup.

  • Step 1 :Connect the router and the computer either via a wired or wireless connection method.
  • Step 2 :Open a browser window on the computer and type the IP address (Gateway) of the router and press the Enter key.
  • Step 3 :Once the router login page opens up, enter the User name and Password , and click Log In to access the router setup page.
  • Step 4 :After entering the router setup page, click the Advanced tab.
  • Step 5 :On the left navigation panel, select Virtual Server and choose the suitable Application name from the drop-down list.
  • Step 6 :If you know the IP address of the device on which you are opening the port, enter it or select the Computer Name from the drop-down menu.
  • Step 7 :You have to choose the type of port, which can be private or public depending, on the access.
  • Step 8 :If it is a local network, choose Private Port , otherwise, select Public Port.
  • Step 9 :Following that, select the protocol you want to use for the service.
  • Step 10 :If you are not choosing any one of the given protocol, click Others and input the correct Port number.
  • Step 11 :You will find a checkbox on the left end of the Protocol service division. Tick the checkbox to enable the protocol.
