router Belkin connection

Post by sigg » Fri Dec 15, 2006 2:52 pm

mdj moderator,

I have version 2.4 ... installed on a desktop using xp. I have a Belkin N1 wireless router. The Belkin tech rep says ports 20 thru 80 are reserved for Belkin use. He also says that he didn't think that passive ftp could be used on this Belkin but wasn't sure. He said that I could check any connections from my laptop using syntax connection ftp://192.168.2.x ... the current router address. I have set my laptop IE browser tool setting to uncheck enable folder view ftp and to make sure to checkmark use passive ftp. I have added an Interface from the manager that has the address of the Belkin router using auto detect.

1 Should we have a forum section specific to routers initial connections with user examples?
2 Can this Belkin router use passive ftp successfully? or has it in the past?
3 What port and address settings will allow Cerberus server and Belkin N1 router to listen , send and recieve?
Information from menu of Belkin.
Firewall > Virtual servers
This function will allow you to route external (Internet) calls for services such as a web server (port 80), FTP server (Port 21), or other applications through your Router to your internal network. More Info
Virtual Servers
This function will allow you to route external (Internet) calls for services such as a web server (port 80), FTP server (Port 21), or other applications through your Router to your internal network. Since your internal computers are protected by a firewall, machines from the Internet cannot get to them because they cannot be 'seen'. If you need to configure the Virtual Server function for a specific application, a list of common applications has been provided. If your application is not listed, you will need to contact the application vendor to find out which port settings you need. To select from the provided list, select your application from the drop-down list. Select the row that you want to copy the settings to from the drop-down list next to "to row", then click "Enter". The settings will be transferred to the row you specified. Click "Apply Changes" to save the setting for that application. To manually enter settings, enter the IP address in the space provided for the internal (server) machine, the port(s) required to pass (use a comma between multiple ports), select the port type (TCP or UDP) and click "Apply Changes". You can only pass one port per internal IP address. Opening ports in your firewall can pose a security risk. You can enable and disable settings very quickly. It is recommended that you disable the settings when you are not using a specific application.
