Using the Advanced Gateway Setup Forwarding Option
Port forwarding settings may be needed to resolve issues when data is sent from a local
host to the Internet, but the return path of expected data is not received by your local
host. Or, you have an application or service running on your local network (on local host)
Ubee DVW3201B Advanced Wireless Voice Gateway Subscriber User Guide • May 2012

Using the Advanced Gateway Setup Forwarding Option
Ubee Interactive
that cannot be accessed from the Internet directly (for example, a request to a local audio
server). Port forwarding tells the cable modem to which computer on the local area
network to send the data. Here are some examples:
 Xbox/PlayStation – Games/applications may require port forwarding.
 Home Security Systems – Security systems that use the Internet may require port
forwarding.
 Audio Servers/VoIP – Audio and VoIP applications and services may require port
forwarding to be fully enabled.
Note
If your host systems/applications do not have communications issues with the
Internet, forwarding is not needed.
You need two major items of information to setup forwarding:
 The IP address of each local host system (for example, Xbox) for which you need to
setup a port forwarding rule. See the discussion below for how to obtain IP addresses.
 The port numbers that a local host’s application listens to for incoming requests/data
(for example, a game or other service). These port numbers should be available in the
documentation associated with the application. You may also refer to
http://portforward.com for more information.
The following tasks are recommended as best practices for setting up forwarding rules:
a. Enable UPnP (Universal Plug and Play). This may resolve the issue you have
without the need to set forwarding rules.
i.
Access the Web interface of the cable modem, see Accessing the Web
Interface on page 17.
ii. Select Gateway from the top menu, then Options from the left menu.
iii. Select the option to enable UPnP.
iv. Test your local host/application (for example, Xbox) to determine correct
functionality. If it is still not properly communicating, continue with forwarding.
 Using the Client List Option on page 83 – Use this option to obtain the MAC and IP
address of the internal host for which you are setting up a forwarding rule. You also
need these for the following task.
 Using the DHCP Static Lease Option on page 39 – Before setting up forwarding, we
recommend that you assign a Static IP lease to the client/host to which you are setting
up forwarding. This way, the IP does not change and disrupt your forwarding rules.
For example, if you are hosting a Web server in your internal network and you wish to
setup a forwarding rule for it, you should assign a static IP lease to that system to
keep the IP from renewing and disrupting the forwarding rule.

Using the Advanced Gateway Setup Forwarding Option
Setting Up Port Forwarding for an Xbox Example:
To setup Port Forwarding, use the following procedure. See the following page for screen
field definitions.
Steps
To set up port forwarding for an Xbox:
1. Click the Gateway link from the top of the screen.
2. Click Forwarding from the left side of the screen.
The following example shows how to setup a single Xbox running Modern Warfare 2.
Since multiple ports are used for the Xbox and the Modern Warfare 2 game, a
separate forwarding rule is set up for each port. (Multiple ports and forwarding rules
may not be required for other applications.) Note the following:
 Enter the Xbox IP address in the Local IP field. Notice how the same IP is entered
in 4 rows, one row for each port used by the Xbox.
 Define ports used by the Xbox in the Internal Port field. Define the same ports
used by the Xbox in the External Port Start and End fields.
 You can set up applications/services to listen on one internal port. External Internet
users who want to access that application, address it using an external port, such
as an Audio server. In the screen example below, Internal Ports are the ports to
which local servers listen. External Ports are the ports that the cable modem
listens to from the WAN.
 Create Port Forwarding rules per port. Therefore, a rule set up for port 53 only
works for port 53. A port can be used only by one program at a time.
 For detailed information on port forwarding, including how to set it up for specific
applications using specific network devices (for example, cable modems), refer to:
http://portforward.com or consult your host device or application user manual.

ports on the server side. With regular port forwarding, you set a forwarding rule to send a
service to the IP address of a LAN side host. The problem is that port forwarding sends a
service to a single LAN IP address.

Using the Advanced Gateway Setup Port Triggering Option
Ubee Interactive
With port triggering, we define two kinds of ports: Trigger Port and Target Port. Trigger
port is the service request with a specific destination port number sent from a LAN side
host. Target Port is the port this specific application requires a LAN host to listen to. Thus,
the server returns responses to these ports.
For example:
1. John requests a file from the Real Audio server (port 7070). Port 7070 is a “trigger”
port and causes the device to record John’s computer IP address. The DVW3201B
associates John's computer IP address with the “target” port range of 6970-7170.
2. The Real Audio server responds to a port number ranging between 6970-7170.
3. The DVW3201B forwards the traffic to John’s computer IP address.
4. Only John can connect to the Real Audio server until the connection is closed or times
out.
Steps
To set up port triggering:
1. Click the Gateway link from the top of the screen.
2. Click Port Triggering from the left side of the screen. The Port Triggering fields are
explained following this screen example.
Note: The following example shows the Port Triggering option set up for a dual Xbox

WPA
Enables or disables the Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA)
security protocol. WPA is a subset of the IEEE 802.11i
standard. Key differences between WPA and WEP are user
authentication and improved data encryption. Setting WPA
alone with a pre-shared key requires a RADIUS or TACACS
server for authentication. This method is mostly used in large
enterprise implementations.
WPA-PSK
Enables or disables WPA Pre-Shared Key (WPA-PSK). If you
do not have an external RADIUS server, use WPA-PSK,
which requires a single (identical) password entered into
wireless gateway and wireless client. As long as the
passwords match, a client is granted access to the wireless
LAN. This is the default residential subscriber setting and
uses TKIP encryption.
WPA2
Enables or disables WPA2. This advanced protocol is
certified through Wi-Fi Alliance's WPA2 program and
implements the mandatory elements of 802.11i. In particular,
it has an AES-based algorithm (CCMP) that is considered
fully secure. Setting WPA2 alone with a pre-shared key
requires a RADIUS or TACACS server for authentication.
This method is mostly used in large enterprise
implementations.
WPA2-PSK
Enables or disables WPA2-PSK. If you do not have an
external RADIUS server, use WPA2-PSK, which requires a
single (identical) password entered into wireless gateway and
wireless client. As long as the passwords match, a client is
granted access to the wireless LAN. This is the
recommended residential subscriber option. It is more secure
than WPA-PSK and uses AES encryption.

WEP Encryption
Enables or disables WEP encryption. If you do not have
wireless clients that can use WPA or WPA2, you can use WEP
key encrypting. A higher bit key offers better security. WEP
encryption scrambles the data transmitted between the wireless
stations and the DVW3201B to keep network communications
private. It encrypts unicast and multicast communications in a

Understanding Received Signal Strength
Received signal strength (RSSI) is measured from connected wireless client devices to
the wireless cable modem. This value can significantly impact wireless
speeds/performance. It is determined by:
 Materials (for example, open air, concrete, trees)
 Distance between wireless clients and the wireless cable modem
 Wireless capabilities of the client devices
To determine the received signal strength, refer to Using the Access Control Option on
page 65 and review the RSSI value. A receive signal strength indicator between 0 to -64
dBm is considered optimal. Levels of -67dBm and lower (for example, -70, -80, etc.) have
a downward impact on wireless data throughput.
Estimating Wireless Cable Modem to Wireless Client Distances
The information in this section helps you to determine how far a wireless cable modem
can be placed from wireless client devices. Environmental variances include the
capabilities of wireless clients and the types of material through which the wireless signal
must pass. When the wireless cable modem and wireless clients reach the distance
threshold between each other, network performance degrades.
Steps
To determine wireless cable modem placement:
1. Connect a wireless client to the wireless cable modem. Refer to Connecting Devices to
the Network on page 12 if needed.
2. Place the wireless client at around one meter (three feet) away from the wireless cable
modem.
3. Obtain the RSSI value for the connected client. Refer to Using the Access Control
Option on page 65. This value is used in the formula further below.
4. Use the following table to determine what materials the wireless signal must travel
through to reach the desired wireless coverage distance.

Note 2: The attenuation caused by trees
varies significantly depending upon the shape
and thickness of the foliage.
5. Use the attenuation value from the materials table above in the following formula:
Formula:
(Transmit Power, use -30dBm) – (Receiver Sensitivity, use RSSI value) =
Allowable Free Space Loss
Allowable Free Space Loss ÷ Materials Attenuation Value =
Optimal Distance in Feet Between the Cable Modem and a Wireless Client
Example:
(-30dBm) - (-67dBm) = 37dBm (allowable free space loss for a 54Mbps
connection)
37dBm ÷ .24db/foot (for open space) = 154.16 feet
6. Once you know the optimal feet distance between individual wireless clients and the
wireless cable modem, you may resolve and prevent some performance issues.
7. To check the wireless signal strength and speed, use the following steps for a
Windows computer connected wirelessly to the wireless cable modem. If the wireless
computer is not connected, refer to Connecting a Wireless Device on page 13.
a. Double-click the Wireless networking icon in the system tray.

Selecting a Wireless Channel
You may need to change the wireless channel on which the wireless cable modem
operates when you are in computing, test, and other environments where several wireless
access points may be operating in the 2.4Ghz range.
In some cases, you may want to segment your wireless traffic where a group of devices
operates on one channel and another group operates on another channel, and so on. This
is done by configuring the channel on each wireless access point individually (if you have
multiples). If you have control over only one wireless device in an environment where
there may be several, you can change the wireless channel on your device to one that is
not heavily used.
Note
To change the wireless broadcast channel, refer to Using the Wireless Radio Option on
page 57.
The following diagram displays the channels available in the Americas. Each available
channel is 22Mhz wide. Since channels overlap, it is best to choose channels that have
the least overlap (typically 1, 6, and 11 in the Americas, and 1, 5, 9, and 13 in Europe).
Overlapping channels can cause wireless network performance issues.

Glossary
This chapter defines terms used in this guide and in the industry.
Broadcast
A packet sent to all devices on a network.
Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS)
Typically located in the cable company’s headend, the CMTS is equipment that provides
high-speed data services to subscribers, such as cable Internet and VoIP.
Channel Bonding
A computer networking configuration where two or more network interfaces are combined
on a host computer for redundancy or increased throughput. Data is transmitted over
these channels as if they are one channel.
Customer Premises Equipment (CPE)
Equipment such as telephones, routers, and modems located at a subscribers location to
enable customers access to communication services.
Default Gateway
The routing device used to forward all traffic that is not addressed to a computer on the
local subnet.
Demilitarized Zone (DMZ)
Allows one IP address (or computer) to be placed in between the firewall and the Internet
(usually for gaming and video conferencing). This allows risky, open access to the
Internet.
Domain
A subnetwork comprised of a group of clients and servers under the control of one
security database.
Domain Name
A descriptive name for an address or group of addresses on the Internet. Domain names
are in the form of a registered entity name plus one of a number of predefined top-level
suffixes, such as .com, .edu, .org.
Domain Name System (DNS)
An Internet service that locates and translates domain names into IP addresses. Because
domain names are alphabetic, they are easier to remember. However, the Internet is
based on IP addresses. Every time you use a domain name, a DNS service translates the
name into the corresponding IP address. The DNS system is actually its own network. If
one DNS server does not know how to translate a particular domain name, it asks another
one, and so on, until the correct IP address is returned.

Downstream
A term to describe the direction of data from the network service provider to the customer.
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)
A protocol that centrally automates the assignment of IP addresses
<Z_CrossRefBlue><Emphasis>IP Addressin a network. Using the Internet’s set of
protocols (TCP/IP) <Z_CrossRefBlue><Emphasis>Transmission Control Protocol/Internet
Protocol (TCP/IP), each machine that can connect to the Internet needs a unique IP
address. For example, when the service provider sets up computer users with a
connection to the Internet, an IP address is assigned to each machine. DHCP lets the
service provider distribute IP addresses and automatically sends a new IP address when
a computer is plugged in to the high-speed Internet network. DHCP uses the concept of a
“lease” or amount of time an IP address is valid for a computer. Lease times can vary.
Ethernet
A standard network protocol that specifies how data is placed on and retrieved from a
common transmission medium. It forms the underlying transport vehicle used by several
upper-level protocols, including TCP/IP and XNS <Z_CrossRefBlue><Emphasis>Xerox
Network Services (XNS).
Firewall
A highly effective method to block unsolicited traffic from outside the connected
computers in your gateway.
Gateway
A local device, usually a router, that connects hosts on a local network to other networks
– sometimes with different incompatible communication protocols.
Headend
A main facility to process and distribute Internet communication signals. Headend may
also refer to cable television signals and power line communication facilities.
Internet Protocol (IP)
The method or protocol by which data is sent from one computer to another on the
Internet. It is a standard set of rules, procedures, or conventions relating to the format and
timing of data transmission between two computers that they must accept and use to
understand each other. Used in conjunction with the Transfer Control Protocol (TCP) to
form TCP/IP.
IP Address
In the most widely installed level of the IP today, an IP address is a 32-bit binary digit
number that identifies each sender or receiver of information that is sent in packet form
across the Internet. When you request a Web page or send an e-mail, the IP part of
TCP/IP includes your IP address. IP sends your IP address to the IP address obtained by
looking up the domain name in the URL <Z_CrossRefBlue><Emphasis>Uniform Resource
Locator (URL)you requested or in the e-mail address to which you are sending a note. A
dynamic IP address is an IP address that is automatically assigned to a client station in a
TCP/IP network, typically by a DHCP server.

Internet Service Provider (ISP)
A company that provides individuals and companies access to the Internet and other
related services.
Interval Usage Code (IUC)
Interval usage codes define different profiles for upstream burst profiles to use for the
data. IUCs are sent to the cable modem from the CMTS to tell the device important
characteristics to use for the burst, such as modulation type, preamble length, and so on.
Local Area Network (LAN)
A group of computers and associated devices such as printers and servers that share a
common communication line and other resources within a small geographic area.
Media Access Control (MAC) Address
A unique number assigned by the manufacturer to any Ethernet networking device, such
as a network adapter, that allows the network to identify it at the hardware level. Usually
written in the form 01:23:45:67:89:ab.
Megabits per Second (Mbps)
A unit of measurement for data transmission that represents one million bits per second.
Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU)
The size in bytes of the largest packet that can be sent or received.
Network Address Translation (NAT)
A technique by which several hosts or computers share a single IP address for access to
the Internet. NAT enables a LAN to use one set of IP addresses for internal traffic and a
second set of addresses for external traffic, and provides a type of firewall by hiding
internal IP addresses.
Network Basic Input Output System (NetBIOS)
An application programming interface (API) that augments the DOS BIOS by adding
special functions for LANs. Almost all Windows-based LANs for PCs are based on the
NetBIOS.
Network Operations Center (NOC)
A location that controls computer, television, or telecommunications networks. Large
organizations usually have more than one network operations center to manage multiple
networks.
Packet
A block of information sent over a network. A packet typically contains a source and
destination network address, some protocol and length information, a block of data, and a
checksum.
Ranging
A process in which a cable modem sends a range request at a power of 8 dBmV (very low
power). If it does not rec i eve a range response from the CMTS, the cable modem retransmits the range request at a 3 dB higher power level and continues the process until
a range response is received.

Routing Information Protocol (RIP)
A protocol in which routers periodically exchange information with one another to
determine minimum-distance paths between sources and destinations.
Router
A device that forwards data between networks. An IP router forwards data based on IP
source and destination addresses.
Subnet
A portion of a network that shares a common address component. On TCP/IP networks,
subnets are defined as all devices whose IP addresses have the same prefix. For
example, all devices with IP addresses that start with 10.1.10 would be part of the same
subnet. IP networks are divided using a subnet mask.
Subnet Mask
Combined with the IP address, the IP subnet mask allows a device to know which other
addresses are local to it, and which must be reached through a gateway or router. A
number that explains which part of an IP address comprises the network address and
which part is the host address on that network.
Telnet
A network protocol used on the Internet or a local area network. Provides bi-directional
interactive text-oriented communications using a virtual terminal connection.
Terminal Access Controller Access-Control System (TACACS)
A remote authentication protocol used to communicate with an authentication server to
determine if the user is allowed to access the network.
Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA)
A method in which cable modems must time-share the upstream channel because there
are many cable modems and only one upstream channel frequency.
Transmission Control Protocol (TCP)
A method (protocol) used with the IP to send data in the form of message units
(datagrams) between network devices over a LAN or WAN. While IP handles the actual
delivery of the data (routing), TCP keeps track of the individual units of data (packets) that
a message is divided into for efficient delivery over the network. TCP requires the receiver
of a packet to return an acknowledgment of receipt to the sender of the packet.
Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
The basic communication language or set of protocols to communicate over a network
(developed specifically for the Internet). TCP/IP defines a suite or group of protocols.
Trivial File Transfer Protocol
A file transfer protocol used to transfer automatically configuration or boot files.
Uniform Resource Identifier (URI)
A string of characters used to identify a name or a resource on the Internet.

A long-distance link or computer network that spans a relatively large geographical area
that connects remotely located LANs. Typically, a WAN consists of two or more LANs.
The Internet is a large WAN.
Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS)
A security protocol for wireless home networks. Created by the Wi-Fi Alliance, this
protocol allows home users to easily set up wireless security and add new devices without
needing to enter long passwords.

A method that links two or more devices to provide a connection through an access point
the wider Internet. Users can move within the local coverage area and stay connect to the
network.
Xerox Network Services (XNS)
A protocol suite developed by Xerox that provides general purpose network
communications, Internet routing, and packet delivery.
