BT Home Hub 2, Port Forward - 19-September-2012, 18:29

Hi guys will some one pm me with some guidance on setting up BT Home Hub 2.0 ........Sent Home Hub 3.0 back because it will not port forward and they will not admit it,
I have added dreambox as a Game/Appliance it has an IP address, the hub can see the dreambox, but no connection to my peers, soon as I go back to my Dlink .... all singing and dancing.
I want the home hub because of the speed it offers.

1. Log into your Home Hub as Admin

2. Go to Settings > Advanced > Application Sharing / Port Forwarding
Under "Supported Applications", you will see a pre-defined list of a number of applications - we'll assume that the application isn't in the list, so click on "Add a new game or application"

3. Then, enter a name for the application and enter the port settings. Select the Protocol for the port you need to open (TCP or UDP), the port range, and the port number to translate to, then press 'Add'.

4. Now, go to 'Application Sharing' > 'Configuration', and under the "Game or application" heading, select the application you've just added from the pulldown.

5. Then, under the "Device" heading, select the device to want the application to connect to, in other words, the target machine that you want to forward the port to (such as your PC, or in this example, your dreambox). it will show the MAC address of your dreambox. You can remove devices, or rename them to something more friendly from the Home Hub's Settings > Advanced > Home Network menu

6. Once you've selected both the application and the device, press 'Add', then Apply.

That should be all you need. Now test it out to see if you can access the dreambox by testing from there are times that the box refuses to re-assign a port to another device, so you may have to reset the home hub to default and try again.
