This Teltonika RUT950 router has a firewall that helps protect your home network from unwanted Internet access. The firewall does this by blocking all ports or connections that are not authorized. This can cause trouble if an online game or program needs some of these non-authorized ports to run efficiently. If you are getting kicked out of the game or program or the program lags you may need to authorize some additional ports. This is frequently called a port forward.
In this guide we will show you exactly how to port forward on the Teltonika RUT950 router. We will show you how to:
It is important to setup a static ip address in the device that you are forwarding a port to. This ensures that your ports will remain open even after your device reboots.
After setting up a static ip address on your devices you need to login to your router.
In this second step we will walk you through the steps in logging into the Teltonika RUT950 router. First you will need to open up a web browser because this router uses a web interface to make setting changes. We recommend picking the browser you are most comfortable using. If you are unsure pick: Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Edge.
After you have opened up the web browser of your choice, find the address bar. This is normally at the top of the page. Here is an example of an address bar:
We have circled the address bar for you. All you need to do is type the router's IP address into the web browser's address bar. Sometimes the router IP address is called the default gateway or the router's GUI address.
The default Teltonika RUT950 router IP address is: 192.168.1.1
After typing the router's IP address into the address bar, click the Enter key and you should be taken to a login page like this:
Enter the username and password to continue into the router's setup pages.
You should now be logged into the Teltonika RUT950 router interface. Let's find the port forwarding section now. We begin on the Overview page of the router:
Select the option at the top of the page labeled Network.
A new menu should appear. Select the new option of Firewall.
You should now see a page like the one above. Select the tab labeled Port Forwarding.
In the next step you will be entering information under the New Port Forward Rule heading.
Here are the ports to forward for Xbox Live:
TCP Ports: 3074 UDP Ports: 3074
You need to name this entry in the Name box. The name does not make any difference in the forward; it's just there so that you can remember later why you setup this forward.
In the Protocol box select the protocol that you want to forward these ports over.
Enter the port to forward into the External port(s) and the Internal port(s) boxes.
Enter the IP address that you want to forward these ports to into the Internal IP box. Note that if you are forwarding ports so you can run a program on a device other than your computer then you can enter your device's IP address into that box instead.
After you are done click the Add button.
When you are finished, be sure to click the Save button at the bottom of the page.
