Ubee DDW365 router has a firewall that keeps your system safe from unauthorized access. The firewall restricts the incoming connections, which may require you to open a port through apps and games.
The procedure of opening a port is usually called a port forward. This involves forwarding a port from the internet to the home network. Below, we have discussed the process of forwarding a port. Read on, to learn how to forward a port.
Step 1: It is necessary for you to set up a static IP address in the device to which you are going to forward a port. This will make sure that the ports are open even when the device restarts.
Once you are done setting up the static IP address, then the next thing that you need to do is to log into your router.
Step 2: After that, you need to log into your Ubee DDW365 router. You can log into your router through its web interface. For this purpose, you need to use your internet browser. You can use any web browser such as Edge, Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Chrome. The choice of the browser does not matter here. You can choose any browser.
Go to the location bar of your browser and then enter the IP address of your router.
After that, you will be required to enter the username and password of your router. The default username and password is "user". Once you are done entering the username and password, then select the button of login for logging into your Ubee DDW365 router.
Step 3: Then, you need to search for the port forwarding section of your router. Go to the Advanced link given at the top of the page and select it.
When you will do that, then the menu appearing on the left will change. Now, select "Forwarding" from the new menu. Now, go to the middle of the page and then select Create IPv4 button.
Step 4: Type the IP address for forwarding the ports to the box of "Local IP". If you wish to forward the ports to some other device so you can run the program on it, then you can enter the IP address of that device in that box.
In case you are going to forward a single port, then you must enter the number in the External end port, local end port, local start port, and external start port. In case you are forwarding a range, then you must enter the lowest value in the box of the external end port and local end port.
Choose the protocols that you wish to forward in the protocol box. Create a name and then put it in the description box. However, the name does not create any impact on the functionality of port forwarding. Go to the "Enabled" dropdown box. Once you are done with it, then select apply. This will open your ports.
