Tenda routers comprise a Chinese wall, designed to block unauthorized access. It helps to protect your network from any unwanted access to the internet. Since it blocks incoming connections, you need to open a port through it, for specific games and applications. Since you are forwarding a port from the internet to your home network, this process of opening a port is known as a Tenda router port forwarding.
This blog post will help you to configure Port forwarding on Tenda Router.
As discussed earlier, port forwarding can be used for many different things like running gaming servers. Before setting up the Tenda router port forwarding, you must be aware of what port is being used and the IP address of the device that it requires to be forwarded to.
Once port forwarding is configured on your Tenda router, any traffic coming to your network on that allocated port will be automatically directed to the IP address given for that particular port.
Setting up Tenda Router Port Forwarding
The basic process to open a port includes the following steps:
- First, set up a static IP address on your device that you want to forward a port to.
- Now login to your Tenda router.
- Go to Advanced.
- Then go to the port forwarding section.
- Create a port forward entry.
If you are forwarding a single port, just enter that port number into the external port start, external portend internal port start, and internal port end boxes.
But, if you are forwarding a wide range of ports, make sure to enter the lowest number of the range in the external port start and internal port start boxes. After this, enter the highest number of the range into the external port end and internal port end boxes.
Now, in the Protocol box, just choose the protocol that you desire to forward these ports over.
After this, click the Apply or Save button.
Your ports are now open.
