UVerse Motorola NVG510 Router Port Forwarding
So... I've looked all over the net, including the Motorola site, here on AT&T, and Youtube, and found the same few scant pages of anyone that knows anything about, or has, an NVG510 router/modem hybrid like I do, which does not even have a public instruction manual currently.
I do not know how to use the current 192.168.1.254 router configuration page to setup port forwarding. All I'm trying to do is set up the simple freeware HFS http fileserver app so I can link people to some files like pics and stuff easily when I'm explaining things online, but they can't connect to the IP, because I'm "behind a firewall". I've added the app as an exception already, so the issue is this port forwarding. I had it resolved with the old speedstream modem and linksys combo I had, but I've been upgraded to a DSLAM (?) here, and it undid all my progress and now all the configuration pages are different, and I don't know what numbers to put where. I know how to pull up my ipconfig /all info but I'm not sure what info needs to go where.
Does anyone know how to simply set up port forwarding so I can just get access to regular port 80 style http connection/app that doesn't seem to have any required specific port of its own, for the NVG510, please? I'm using WinXP SP3. Thanks for any help. -J
