4... 3... 4 Port Trigger

Port range triggering opens a predetermined incoming port for a limited period of time whenever a client on the local area network makes an outgoing connection to a specified port... Port triggering is used in the following scenarios:

More than one local client needs port forwarding for the same application at a different time...

An application requires specific incoming ports that are different from the outgoing ports...

To set up Port Trigger:

1... From the navigation panel, go to Advanced Settings > WAN > Port Trigger tab...

Page 76

76

2... On the Enable Port Trigger field, tick Yes...

3... On the Well-Known Applications field, select the popular games and web services to add to the Port Trigger List...

Description: Enter a short name or description for the service...

Trigger Port: Specify a trigger port to open the incoming port...

Protocol: Select the protocol, TCP, or UDP... Incoming Port: Specify an incoming port to receive inbound

data from the Internet... Protocol: Select the protocol, TCP, or UDP...

5... Click the Add button to enter the port trigger information to the list... Click the Delete button to remove a port trigger entry from the list...

6... When done, click Apply...

NOTES:

When connecting to an IRC server, a client PC makes an outgoing connection using the trigger port range 66660-7000... The IRC server responds by verifying the username and creating a new connection to the client PC using an incoming port...

If Port Trigger is disabled, the router drops the connection because it is unable to determine which PC is requesting for IRC access... When Port Trigger is enabled, the router assigns an incoming port to receive the inbound data... This incoming port closes once a specific time period has elapsed because the router is unsure when the application has been terminated...

Port triggering only allows one client in the network to use a particular service and a specific incoming port at the same time...

You cannot use the same application to trigger a port in more than one PC at the same time... The router will only forward the port back to the last computer to send the router a request/trigger...

Page 77

77

4... 3... 5 Virtual Server/Port Forwarding

Port forwarding is a method to direct network traffic from the Internet to a specific port or a specific range of ports to a device or number of devices on your local network... Setting up Port Forwarding on your router allows PCs outside the network to access specific services provided by a PC in your network...

NOTE: When port forwarding is enabled, the ASUS router blocks unsolicited inbound traffic from the Internet and only allows replies from outbound requests from the LAN... The network client does not have access to the Internet directly, and vice versa...

To set up Port Forwarding:

1... From the navigation panel, go to Advanced Settings > WAN > Virtual Server / Port Forwarding tab...

2... On the Enable Port Forwarding field, tick Yes...

Page 78

78

3... On the Famous Server List field, select the type of service you want to access...

4... On the Famous Game List field, select the popular game that you want to access... This item lists the port required for your selected popular online game to work properly...

5... On the Port Forwarding List table, key in the following information: Service Name: Enter a service name... Port Range: If you want to specify a Port Range for clients

on the same network, enter the Service Name, the Port Range (e... g... 10200:10300), the LAN IP address, and leave the Local Port empty... Port range accepts various formats such as Port Range (300:350), individual ports (566,789) or Mix (1015:1024,3021)...

NOTES:

When your networks firewall is disabled and you set 80 as the HTTP servers port range for your WAN setup, then your http server/web server would be in conflict with the routers web user interface...

A network makes use of ports in order to exchange data, with each port assigned a port number and a specific task... For example, port 80 is used for HTTP... A specific port can only be used by one application or service at a time... Hence, two PCs attempting to access data through the same port at the same time would fail... For example, you cannot set up Port Forwarding for port 100 for two PCs at the same time...

Local IP: Key in the clients LAN IP address...

NOTE: Use a static IP address for the local client to make port forwarding work properly... Refer to section 4... 2 LAN for information...

Page 79

79

Local Port: Enter a specific port to receive forwarded packets... Leave this field blank if you want the incoming packets to be redirected to the specified port range...

Protocol: Select the protocol... If you are unsure, select BOTH... 5... Click the Add to enter the port trigger information to the

list... Click the Delete button to remove a port trigger entry from the list...

6... When done, click Apply...

To check if Port Forwarding has been configured successfully: Ensure that your server or application is set up and running...

You will need a client outside your LAN but has Internet access (referred to as Internet client)... This client should not be connected to the ASUS router...

On the Internet client, use the routers WAN IP to access the server... If port forwarding has been successful, you should be able to access the files or applications...

Differences between port trigger and port forwarding: Port triggering will work even without setting up a specific

LAN IP address... Unlike port forwarding, which requires a static LAN IP address, port triggering allows dynamic port forwarding using the router... Predetermined port ranges are configured to accept incoming connections for a limited period of time... Port triggering allows multiple computers to run applications that would normally require manually forwarding the same ports to each PC on the network...

Port triggering is more secure than port forwarding since the incoming ports are not open all the time... They are opened only when an application is making an outgoing connection through the trigger port...

Page 80

80

4... 3... 6 DMZ

Virtual DMZ exposes one client to the Internet, allowing this client to receive all inbound packets directed to your Local Area Network...

Inbound traffic from the Internet is usually discarded and routed to a specific client only if port forwarding or a port trigger has been configured on the network... In a DMZ configuration, one network client receives all inbound packets...

Setting up DMZ on a network is useful when you need incoming ports open or you want to host a domain, web, or e-mail server...

CAUTION: Opening all the ports on a client to the Internet makes the network vulnerable to outside attacks... Please be aware of the security risks involved in using DMZ...

To set up DMZ:

1... From the navigation panel, go to Advanced Settings > WAN > DMZ tab...

2... Configure the setting below... When done, click Apply... IP address of Exposed Station: Key in the clients LAN IP

address that will provide the DMZ service and be exposed on the Internet... Ensure that the server client has a static IP address...

GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE

Version 2, June 1991

Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc...

59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA

Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed...

Preamble The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it... By contrast, the GNU General

Page 116

116

Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to make sure the software is free for all its users... This General Public License applies to most of the Free Software Foundations software and to any other program whose authors commit to using it... (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by the GNU Library General Public License instead... ) You can apply it to your programs, too...

When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price... Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things...

To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights... These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it...

For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have... You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code... And you must show them these terms so they know their rights...

We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software...

Also, for each authors protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free software... If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors reputations...

Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software

Page 117

117

patents... We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary... To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must be licensed for everyones free use or not licensed at all...

The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow...

Terms & conditions for copying, distribution, & modification 0... This License applies to any program or other work which

contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the terms of this General Public License... The Program, below, refers to any such program or work, and a work based on the Program means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another language... (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the term modification... ) Each licensee is addressed as you...

Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope... The act of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the Program (independent of having been made by running the Program)... Whether that is true depends on what the Program does...

1... You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Programs source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License along with the Program...

You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee...

2... You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any

Page 118

118

portion of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:

a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the files and the date of any change...

b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties under the terms of this License...

c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when run, you must cause it, when started running for such interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this License... (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on the Program is not required to print an announcement... )

These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole... If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program, and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those sections when you distribute them as separate works... But when you distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it...

Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works based on the Program...

In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on

Page 119

119

the Program with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope of this License...

3... You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:

a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine- readable source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,

b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,

c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to distribute corresponding source code... (This alternative is allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you received the program in object code or executable form with such an offer, in accord with Subsection b above... )

The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it... For an executable work, complete source code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control compilation and installation of the executable... However, as a special exception, the source code distributed need not include anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies the executable...

If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy the source code from the same place counts as distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not compelled to copy the source along with

Page 120

120

the object code...

4... You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except as expressly provided under this License... Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License... However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance...

5... You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it... However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or distribute the Program or its derivative works... These actions are prohibited by law if you do not accept this License...

Therefore, by modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the Program or works based on it...

6... Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to these terms and conditions... You may not impose any further restrictions on the recipients exercise of the rights granted herein... You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to this License...

7... If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not excuse you from the conditions of this License... If you cannot distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may not distribute the Program at all... For example, if a patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to refrain entirely from distribution of the Program...

If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances...

It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free software distribution system, which is implemented by public license practices... Many people have made generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed through that system in reliance on consistent application of that system; it is up to the author/ donor to decide if he or she is willing to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot impose that choice...

This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be a consequence of the rest of this License...

8... If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the original copyright holder who places the Program under this License may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded... In such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if written in the body of this License...

9... The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/ or new versions of the General Public License from time to time... Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns...

Each version is given a distinguishing version number... If the Program specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and any later version, you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of that version or of any later version published by the Free Software Foundation... If the Program does not specify a version number of this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation...

10... If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author to ask for permission...

For software which is copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions for this... Our decision will be guided by the two goals of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally...

NO WARRANTY 11 BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE,

THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW... EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM AS IS WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE... THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU... SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION...

12 IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES...
