The process of opening a port on an EnGenius router is called Port
Forwarding. 

In this article we will walk you through each step on opening a
port. 

 

Step 1

It is important to setup a static ip address in the
device that you are forwarding a port to. This ensures that your ports
will remain open even after your device reboots.

 

Step 2

We need to login to the setup page of the router. Using a computer that is
connected to the router (wired or wireless), open a web browser. It can be
Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Edge or Internet Explorer. It can
be any browser. 

Find the Address bar. It should look like the one below:

In this example, the IP address is 192.168.0.1. Simply replace it with the
router's IP address. Check the computer's default gateway to
know the router's IP. The default EnGenius router's IP is
192.168.0.1

After entering the IP, select Router Management:

This time, you will be asked for the username and password. Enter the
username and password setup for the router. The default username is
admin and the default password is admin.

We can now enter the information we want

  • Description: Name of the Application
  • Local IP: IP Address of the device you are forwarding the port to
  • Protocol: Type of Protocol used for the application
  • Local Port: Port needed to be opened
  • Public Port: Port needed to be opened

For example, if you want to open port 53, it should look like below:

Just add another entry if there are more ports to open. 

Don't forget to click Apply to save the changes.
