How to open ports in Nokia Siemens Wi-fi routers 1600 Bsnl. With pictures (Port forwarding in Nokia Siemens Wi-fi routers.)

You need to open ports for various online activities to work. Most of the modems (simple Ethernet cable modems with no wireless) have all the ports open but that’s not the case if you have got  Wi-fi routers. You need to open a particular port manually for a particular activity. Most popular such activity, for which port forwarding is required, is for “multiplayer gaming”. There is different procedures of port forwarding for all the routers (some may have same).
Here is a step by step guide with pictures for Nokia Siemens routers -

1.    Open any web browser. And open the following URL. (copy and paste in Address bar)-

This is the hidden link required to access Nokia Siemens port forwarding panel. (This article is about port forwarding, If you want to access other settings of Nokia Siemens router then use link-

2.    You may need to put in Admin id and password. By default its “admin” and “admin”, so just type in “admin” in both, the Id and password fields and press ENTER.
3.    You will see the NAT—Virtual server page. From here you can add or remove ports. (Open and close ports)
4.    Nokia Siemens has provided pre-settings for a big list of services. Search the list, and if you can find the service for which you want to open port, then just select it. All the fields will be filled automatically. After that just click “Save/Apply” button. And you are done. (Server Ip address and Remote ip fields has to be filled manually, that is explained in next step)

5.    But if you want to add a custom port (If you didn't found the service you are looking for) then the fields has to be filled like this-
·        Select the “custom server” Option instead of “select a server” and give your custom server any name you want. (In the example screenshot I have used name “TandOstuff” you can use any)
·        Now open Command Prompt (for that, click on windows start button>open “run”>type in “cmd” and press enter.
·        In command prompt, type “ipconfig” and press enter.
·        Just note down the “ipv4 address” and “Default Gateway”

·        Close cmd and come back to NAT—Virtual Servers page. Just fill the “ipv4 address” in the “server Ip address field”
·        Fill in the ports you want to open. Fill both, external start point, external end point and internal start point, internal end point. If you want open a range of port, then fill the start and the end point. But if you want to open a single port, then type it in both, start and end point.
·        For example- If you want to open port 28960-28966 (i.e. from 28960 to 28966) then
External port start- 28960
External port end- 28966
Internal port start- 28960
Internal port end- 28966

Or if you just want to open port “8080” then-
External port start- 8080
External port end- 8080
Internal port start- 8080
Internal port end- 8080

·        In the protocol column, select “UDP/TCP” from the drop down menu.
·        In remote ip, type in your “Default Gateway” (Which we have noted from cmd)
·        Click “save/apply” and close the page.
·        Here is an example, showing what should be the required fields for opening port 8080.

Wola! You are done.
