Solwise SAR130+Port Forwarding

To enable me to use some aspects of software I am using it seems I need to allow port forwarding.But have had a good look throught the options on the inbuilt website but have not been able to find anything that looks like "port forwarding",but that maybe because I am not sure excactly what it is I am looking for there.

Would some one be so kind as to point me in the right direction please.

I have come to the conclusion that although I am happy with my recently aquired Mac certain things were a lot more easy on my Windows Box,either that or I am going the wrong way about things :-)

To port forward you have to add NAT rules in the SAR110
I assume this would be identical in the 130.
Here's how to do it in the 110.

Thanks aleca

I did have a long look at that,but it bears no resembalence to what the program say if I may quote.

"If you connect to the internet using airport or a router with NAT you need to set it up to forward this port range to this computer"

The port range mentioned is 32768-32788 which is where I fall down as I was unable to see anywhere in the NAT setup to enter this information.I am of course assuming that the router straight out of the box is set for NAT operation.But I could be wrong on that.

If it is any help the purpose is to allow DCC file sharing via an IRC chat or IM client,which is what I was refering to when I said somethings were easier on the Windows machine where it was just a press button affair. :-)

Thanks again

From what your saying you want to 'port forward' the range
32768 - 32788 for one or both of your pc's
these have a local IP address of (assumed) 192.168.7.2 &3.
Type 192.168.7.1 in your browser and bring up your
routers set up page.
Click on the NAT tab and select Nat options,
from the drop down list.
Click 'add ' to display add page.
Rule Flavour : RDR
Rule ID (choose number) : 10
IF Name : ALL
Protocol : ALL
Local Address From : 192.168.7.2 (address of 1st pc)
Local Adress To : 192.168.7.3 (address of 2nd pc or as above for 1 pc)
Global Address From / To : 0.0.0.0 (both boxes as recommended CM)
Destination Port From : Any Other Port (1st Box) : 32768 (2nd Box)
Destination Port To : Any Other Port (1st Box) : 32788 (2nd Box)
Local Port : Any Other Port (1st Box) : 0 (2nd Box)
Press Submit (rule is added) / Commit & Reboot Rule is saved.

I think some progress has been made however the recieving end reports that they are "unable to establish a connection" so athough the file seems to want to leave my machine there still seems to be something stopping thier machine saying "ok send away" any ideas? I entered the information as you wrote it.

Add napt rule for translating your private lan to public address.
Click NAT tab
Select NAT Rule entry
Click Add
NAPT flavour displays by default.
Rule Flavour : NAPT
RULE ID : 1
IF Name : ALL
Local Address from : 0.0.0.0
Local Address To : 255.255.255.255
Global Address : ( enter your Plusnet public IP address )
Submit, commit & re - boot

PS :also check if any other ports required eg 194, 113, 59.

Please pardon my ignorance but am I correct in assuming that refers to the IP address that Plusnet issued me with.Just as a matter of interest do those original numbers change if for example computer 1 192.168.7.2 is the only one rquired to sent files by DCC to the internet and has no need to send or recieve files from computer 2 192.168.7.3 or for the benifit of this excercise can the 2nd computer be removed from the equations as it is only used for e-mails and web browsing.Just having a bit of difficulty getting my head around where the second machine fits in..But I suspect that you are correct and it probably plays some vital role.

The bad part is that I have to wait till tomorrow to see if it wpoks or not

Thanks for your patience it's appreciated

Yep, your Public IP address is the one assigned by PlusNet - 212.159.74.158 in your case (well, thats what sunhouse.plus.com points at anyway)

Yes you should now have 2 rules rule ID 1 & 10,
assuming they're numbered as suggested.
If you only want 1 pc to participate in IRC then
change ( or delete and reform ) rule ID 10.

All as previously but :
Local Address From : 192.168.7.2
Local Address To : 192.168.7.2 (private address of pc you want for IRC).
I don't think it really neccessary to change original rule,
your other PC will only participate if you form the connection,(with it aswell)
however if you feel more secure by doing so then the above should do it.
Alec.
PS : I think it should now work but if you still can't connect then
try entering your public IP address in both Global Address From/To
in Rule ID 10 (instead of 0.0.0.0, but only if still a problem)

Sigh! I think I will see if I can trade this Mac in on Win98SE machine :-) I have tried all the suggestions and the situation at the moment is: the other party is aware I am trying to send something,but the something does not seem to want to leave my machine because the would be reciepient is able to say "it's not sending" so something is happening but I have no idea what :-(

Would I get rid of these problems if I junked the router and bought an ADSL modem?

Happy New year to one and all
