Port forwarding assistance.


Hello all, im trying to get optimum performance for transmission, but i cant seem to properly open my ports. Here are a couple screen shots

Where it is labeled Lan ip address it only allows me to type in 3 character..so im a little lost on what goes there and im unsure if thats what is causing the problem. but im hoping someone will be able to tell me what im doing wrong.

P.S - It is a Belkin router

I appreciate any assistance/input

That looks correct, I'm assuming you have verified that your systems LAN ip is the .1 address that you are putting in? The reason why you are only able to type in three characters is because the belkin has you on the 192.168.2 network and you can only have up to three digits for the last octet which is what you are specifying.

Verify there are no blocks locally on the system, try telnetting to your LAN ip on the port from the machine itself and see if you can get the port working internally. Once you verify internal connectivity you can move onto the routers wan to lan translations.

Right but if you look at the actual IP address you have on the workstation what is it? Is it 192.168.2.1?
