2. 23. NAT Forwarding
Touch P5’s NAT (Network Address Translation) feature makes devices in the LAN use
the same public IP address to communicate in the Internet, which protects the local
network by hiding IP addresses of the devices. However, it also brings about the
problem that an external host cannot initiatively communicate with a specified device
in the local network.
With the forwarding feature, your Touch P5 can penetrate the isolation of NAT and
allow external hosts in the Internet to initiatively communicate with devices in the local
network, thus realizing some special functions.
Touch P5 includes four forwarding rules. If two or more rules are set, the priority of
implementation from high to low is Virtual Servers, Port Triggering, UPNP and DMZ.
This section contains the following sections:
48
Chapter 2
Configure Touch P5 as a Router
• Share Local Resources in the Internet by Virtual Server
• Open Ports Dynamically by Port Triggering
• Make Applications Free from Port Restriction by DMZ
• Make Xbox Online Games Run Smoothly by UPnP
2. 23. 1. Share Local Resources in the Internet by Virtual Server
When you build up a server in the local network and want to share it on the Internet,
Virtual Server can realize the service and provide it to the Internet users. At the same
time Virtual Server can keep the local network safe as other services are still invisible
from the Internet.
Virtual Server can be used for setting up public services in your local network, such as
HTTP, FTP, DNS, POP3/SMTP and Telnet. Different services applies different service ports.
Port 80 is used for HTTP service, port 21 for FTP service, port 25 for SMTP service and port
110 for POP3 service. Please verify the service port number before the configuration.
I want to:
Share my personal website I’ve built in local network with my
friends through the Internet.
For example: The personal website has been built in my home
computer (192.168.0.100). I hope that my friends in the Internet
can visit my website in some way. The computer is connected to
your Touch P5 with the WAN IP address 218.18.232.154.
Personal Website
Router
INTERNET
Home
How can I
do that?
LAN
WAN: 218.18.232.154
1.Assign a static IP address to your computer, for example
192.168.0.100.
2.Visit http://tplinkwifi.net, and log in with the username and
password you set for your Touch P5.
3.Go to Advanced > NAT Forwarding > Virtual Servers, and click
Add.
4.Click View Existing Services, and select your Service Type (in
this case: HTTP). The External Port, Internal Port and Protocol
will be automatically filled in. Enter the computer’s IP address
192.168.0.100 in the Internal IP field.
5.Click OK.
49
Chapter 2
Configure Touch P5 as a Router
Note:
1. It is recommended to keep the default settings of Internal Port and Protocol if you
are not clear about which port and protocol to use.
2. If the service you want to use is not in the list of Service Type, you can enter the
corresponding parameters manually. You should verify the service port number.
3. You can add multiple virtual server rules if you want to provide several services in
your Touch P5. Please note that the External Port cannot be overlapped.
Done!
Users in the Internet can enter Service Type://WAN IP to visit
your local resources (in this case, enter http://218.18.232.154 to
visit your personal website).
Note:
1. The WAN IP should be a public IP address. For the WAN IP is assigned dynamically
by ISP, it is recommended to apply and register a domain name for the WAN by
DDNS. Then you can use Service Type://Domain Name to visit your local resources.
2. If you have changed the default External Port, you should use Service Type://WAN
IP:External Port or Service Type://Domain Name:External Port to visit your local
resources.
2. 23. 2. Open Ports Dynamically by Port Triggering
Port Triggering can specify a triggering port and its corresponding external ports.
When a host in the local network initiates a connection to the triggering port, all the
external ports will be opened for subsequent connections. Your Touch P5 can record
the IP address of the host. When the data from the Internet return to the external ports,
your Touch P5 can forward them to the corresponding host. Port Triggering is mainly
applied to online games, VoIPs and video players. Common applications include MSN
Gaming Zone, Dialpad, Quick Time 4 players, etc.
Follow the steps below to configure the port triggering rules:
50
Chapter 2
Configure Touch P5 as a Router

Port, Internal Port and Protocol will be automatically filled in. The following picture
takes application MSN Gaming Zone as an example.
4. Click OK.
Note:
1.
You can add multiple port triggering rules as needed.
2.
If the application you want to use is not in the list of Existing Applications, you can enter the corresponding
parameters manually. You should verify the ports number that the application needs.
2. 23. 3. Make Applications Free from Port Restriction by DMZ
When a computer is set as a DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) host in the local network, it
is totally exposed to the Internet, which can realize the unlimited bidirectional
communication between internal and external hosts. The DMZ host becomes a virtual
server with all ports open. When you are not clear about which ports to open in some
special applications, like IP camera and database software, you can set the computer
to be a DMZ host.
Note: DMZ is more applicable in the situation that users are not clear about which ports to open. When it is
enabled, the DMZ host is totally exposed to the Internet, which may bring some potential safety hazard. If DMZ is
not in use, please disable it in time.
51
Chapter 2
Configure Touch P5 as a Router
I want to:
Make the home computer join the Internet online game without
port restriction.
For example: Due to some port restriction, when playing online
games, you can login normally but cannot join a team with other
players. To solve this problem, set your computer as a DMZ with
all ports open.
1.Assign a static IP address to your computer, for example
192.168.0.100.
2.Visit http://tplinkwifi.net, and log in with the username and
password you set for your Touch P5.
3.Go to Advanced > NAT Forwarding > DMZ and select the

filed.
5.Click Save.
Done!
The configuration is completed. You’ve set your computer as a
DMZ host and now you can make a team to game with other
players.
2. 23. 4. Make Xbox Online Games Run Smoothly by UPnP
The UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) protocol allows applications or host devices
to automatically find the front-end NAT device and send request to it to open the
corresponding ports. With UPnP enabled, applications or host devices in both sides of NAT
device can freely communicate with each other, thus realizing the seamless connection
of the network. You may need to enable the UPnP if you want to use applications for
multiplayer gaming, peer-to-peer connections, real-time communication (such as VoIP
or telephone conference), remote assistance, etc.
Note:
1.
Only application supporting the UPnP protocol can use this feature.
2.
The UPnP feature needs the support of operating system (e.g. Windows Vista/ Windows 7/ Windows 8, etc.
Some operating systems need to install the UPnP components).
52
Chapter 2
Configure Touch P5 as a Router
For example: When you connect your Xbox to your Touch P5 which is connected to
the Internet for online games, UPnP will send request to your Touch P5 to open the
corresponding ports allowing the following data penetrating the NAT to transmit.
Therefore, you can play Xbox online games without a hitch.
