4-4-3-2 Port Triggering

Port triggering is a way to automate port forwarding in which outbound traffic on predetermined ports

(‘triggering ports’) causes inbound traffic to specific incoming ports to be dynamically forwarded to the initiating host, while the outbound ports are in use. This allows computers behind a NAT-enabled router on a local network to provide services that would normally require the computer to have a fixed address on the local network. Port triggering triggers can open an incoming port when a client on the local network makes an outgoing connection on a predetermined port or range of ports.

When you click on “Add” the following screen will appear.

Enter the DMZ Host IP address which is the IP address of the local host. This feature sets a local host to be exposed to the Internet.

4-4-3-4 IP Address Map

Advanced users can use this feature for outgoing traffic, creating “NAT IP MAPPING” rules that divert all traffic that is destined for a certain IP address to a different IP address. Entries in this table allow you to configure one Global IP Pool for specified Local IP address from LAN.

When you click on “Add” the following screen will appear.

4-4-7 Quality Of Service

The QoS is enforced by the QoS rules in the QoS table. A QoS rule contains two configuration blocks:

Traffic Classification and Action. The Traffic Classification enables you to classify packets on the basis of various fields in the packet and perhaps the physical ingress port. The Action enables you to assign the strict priority level and mark some fields in the packet that matches the Traffic Classification rule. You can configure any or all fields as needed in these two QoS blocks for a QoS rule.

Check the “Enable QoS” checkbox as shown below. Then choose a default DSCP mark to automatically mark incoming traffic without reference to a particular classifier. Click on “Apply/Save” button to save it.

Scenario Solution

Unable to access the a. Please check the power cord connection and network cable of this router through web page router. All cords and cables should be correctly and firmly inserted into the router. b. If all LED’s on the router are off, please check the status of A/C power adapter, and make sure it’s correctly powered. c. You must use the same IP address subnet as the router uses. d. Are you using MAC or IP address filter? Try to connect the router by another computer and see if it works; if not, please restore your router to factory default settings (pressing ‘reset’ button for over 10 seconds). e. Set your computer to obtain an IP address automatically (DHCP), and see if your computer can get an IP address. f. If you did a firmware upgrade and this happens, contact your dealer of purchase for help. g. If all above solutions don’t work, contact the dealer of purchase for help. h. Clear your Internet browser history and cache memory.

8. Glossary

Default Gateway (Router): Every non-router IP device needs to configure a default gateway IP address.

When the device sends out an IP packet, if the destination is not on the same network, the device has to send the packet to its default gateway, which will then send it to the destination.

DHCP: Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. This protocol automatically gives every computer on your home network an IP address.

DNS Server IP Address: DNS stands for Domain Name System, which allows Internet servers to have a domain name (such as www.Broadbandrouter.com) and one or more IP addresses (such as 192.34.45.8). A

DNS server keeps a database of Internet servers and their respective domain names and IP addresses, so that when a domain name is requested (as in typing "Broadbandrouter.com" into your Internet browser), the user is sent to the proper IP address. The DNS server IP address used by the computers on your home network is the location of the DNS server your ISP has assigned to you.

DSL Modem: DSL stands for Digital Subscriber Line. A DSL modem uses your existing phone lines to transmit data at high speeds.

DMZ: DMZ is a physical or logical subnetwork that contains and exposes an organization's external services to a larger untrusted network, usually the Internet. The purpose of a DMZ is to add an additional layer of security to an organization's local area network (LAN); an external attacker only has access to equipment in the DMZ, rather than any other part of the network.

Ethernet: A standard for computer networks. Ethernet networks are connected by special cables and hubs, and move data around at up to 10/100 million bits per second (Mbps).

Idle Timeout: Idle Timeout is designed so that after there is no traffic on the Internet for a pre-configured amount of time, the connection will automatically get disconnected.

IP Address and Network (Subnet) Mask: IP stands for Internet Protocol. An IP address consists of a series of four numbers separated by periods, which identifies a single, unique Internet computer host in an

IP network. Example: 192.168.2.1. It consists of 2 portions: the IP network address, and the host identifier.

The IP address is a 32-bit binary pattern, which can be represented as four cascaded decimal numbers separated by “.”: aaa.aaa.aaa.aaa, where each “aaa” can be anything from 000 to 255, or as four cascaded binary numbers separated by “.”: bbbbbbbb.bbbbbbbb.bbbbbbbb.bbbbbbbb, where each “b” can be either

0 or 1.

A network mask is also a 32-bit binary pattern, and consists of consecutive leading

1’s followed by consecutive trailing 0’s, such as 11111111.11111111.11111111.00000000. Therefore sometimes a network mask can also be described simply as “x” number of leading 1’s.

When both are represented side by side in their binary forms, all bits in the IP address that correspond to

1’s in the network mask become part of the IP network address, and the remaining bits correspond to the host ID.

88

DG-BG4300NU User Manual

For example, if the IP address for a device is, in its binary form,

11011001.10110000.10010000.00000111, and if its network mask is,

11111111.11111111.11110000.00000000

It means the device’s network address is

11011001.10110000.10010000.00000000, and its host ID is,

00000000.00000000.00000000.00000111. This is a convenient and efficient method for routers to route

IP packets to their destination.

ISP Gateway Address: (see ISP for definition). The ISP Gateway Address is an IP address for the

Internet router located at the ISP's office.

ISP: Internet Service Provider. An ISP is a business that provides connectivity to the Internet for individuals and other businesses or organizations.

LAN: Local Area Network. A LAN is a group of computers and devices connected together in a relatively small area (such as home or office). Your home network is considered a LAN.

MAC Address: MAC stands for Media Access Control. A MAC address is the hardware address of a device connected to a network. MAC address is a unique identifier for a device with an Ethernet interface.

It is comprised of two parts: 3 bytes of data that correspond to the Manufacturer ID (unique for each manufacturer), plus 3 bytes that are often used as the product’s serial number.

NAT: Network Address Translation. This process allows all the computers on your home network to use one IP address. Using the broadband router’s NAT capability, you can access Internet from any computer on your home network without having to purchase more IP addresses from your ISP.

Port: Network Clients (LAN PC) uses port numbers to distinguish one network application/protocol over another. Below is a list of common applications and protocol/port numbers:

Application Protocol

Port

Number

SNMP Trap

PC Anywhere

UDP

TCP

162

5631

PC Anywhere UDP 5632

Port triggering: Port triggering is a configuration option on a NAT-enabled router that allows a host machine to dynamically and automatically forward a specific port back to itself. Port triggering opens an incoming port when your computer is using a specified outgoing port for specific traffic.

89

DG-BG4300NU User Manual

PPPoE: (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet.) Point-to-Point Protocol is a secure data transmission method originally created for dial-up connections; PPPoE is for Ethernet connections. PPPoE relies on two widely accepted standards, Ethernet and the Point-to-Point Protocol. It is a communication protocol for transmitting information over Ethernet between different manufacturers.

Protocol: A protocol is a set of rules for interaction agreed upon between multiple parties so that when they interface with each other based on such a protocol, the interpretation of their behavior is well defined and can be made objectively, without confusion or misunderstanding.

Router: A router is an intelligent network device that forwards packets between different networks based on network layer address information such as IP addresses.

Subnet Mask: A subnet mask, which may be a part of the TCP/IP information provided by your ISP, is a set of four numbers (e.g. 255.255.255.0) configured like an IP address. It is used to create IP address numbers used only within a particular network (as opposed to valid IP address numbers recognized by the

Internet, which must be assigned by InterNIC).

TCP/IP, UDP: Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and Unreliable Datagram

Protocol (UDP). TCP/IP is the standard protocol for data transmission over the Internet. Both TCP and

UDP are transport layer protocols. TCP performs proper error detection and error recovery, and thus is reliable. UDP on the other hand is not reliable. They both run on top of the IP (Internet Protocol), a network layer protocol.

WAN: Wide Area Network. A network that connects computers located in geographically separate areas

(e.g. different buildings, cities, countries). The Internet is a wide area network.

Web-based management Graphical User Interface (GUI): Many devices support a graphical user interface that is based on the web browser. This means the user can use the familiar Netscape or Microsoft

Internet Explorer to Control/configure or monitor the device being managed.

3G telecommunication networks: Supports services that provide an information transfer rate of at least

200 kbit/s. However, many services advertised as 3G provide higher speed than the minimum technical requirements for a 3G service. Later 3G releases, often denoted 3.5G and 3.75G, also provide mobile broadband access of several Mbit/s to smartphones and mobile modems in laptop computers.
