port forwarding with ooma and ASUS RT-N13U

Post by angrysquirrel » Mon Aug 23, 2010 5:16 pm

Hello Folks,

My setup is internet ----> cable modem -----> ooma core -----> asus router ---- > computer.

I've been reading the forums on port forwarding but for some reason when I do this my router doesn't seem to want to connect to the ooma hub.

Here's what I have set on the ooma core: Image

Here's what I have set up on the asus router: Image

From my reading in the forums, all I think I should need to do is to change the setting on the asus router to 172.27.35.2 with the subnet of 255.255.255.0

When I do the change I can't get access to the asus router when I type in 172.27.35.2 in the browser. Could you folks please explain what I need to do? Thanks!

In your configuration cable modem -----> ooma core -----> asus router, you don't need to do anything special.

The IP numbers seem to plug in fine but the port forwarding doesn't seem to work. My utorrent says a firewall / router seems to be blocking incoming traffic and that I need to open a port so that others can connect to me.

I am forwarding it to port 80 and utorrent is also set to port 80 but its' still red.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

If you just want to forward port 80, blank out the DMZ address.
Many residential ISPs block incoming port 80 because their terms of service prohibit running a server.
