How do i forward my routers ports so echolink works.
OK.. Print this off so you can follow along as you configure your modem..
This will access your DSL modem. *mine* is a Westell but they're all fairly similar.
In the browser address bar enter 192.168.1.1 & press enter.
You should see a menu like "status, config, maint etc"
Click on, or hover over "Configuration" menu.. look for "service configuration" & click on it.
You might need a password & user name...use "admin" for both without the quotes.
Now you may need to "define a custom service"..
Select "port forwarding"
Name the new service "Echolink"..
Allow "UDP" protocol on ports 5198 and 5199..
Select OK's as necessary to back out.
Retry echolink & see if you can connect.
Your modem may vary somewhat from mine but they will ALL have a port forwarding feature..
Chances are good this will resolve the issue.
Try it out & post back here.. or drop me a PM & I'll come up on echolink & talk ya thru some of the menus & settings.
Here's a couple sites that may have more info you can use..
What router do you have?
The exact 'how' of how to do it will depend on what router you're using and how it's configured. Seriously, this is a true RTM type questions. I haven't seen a consumer level router on the retail market for several years now that did *not* include port forwarding instructions.
Look for something like 'virtual servers' adn the like. D-Link's web site has some simulators that may help.
They have instructions for just about every router/software combo going!
Bet me too it !
You may also have to enable Static NAT, should in the NAT Gaming tab.
Had to do this with a Westell modem, no fooling with port forwarding after enabling NAT
