Before attempting to configure port forwarding on the FiOS router, there is some information that you need to have in hand.
- Computer/Device HOST name or IP Address if it is a static IP address
- A list of the Port numbers and Protocols needed for the game, service or application
The Actiontec FiOS Routers have built-in pre-configured rules for many of the common games, applications, and services. It is a good practice to check the list before you begin to configure a new port forwarding rule. If the Protocol you need is not listed, you can create a custom rule using these directions. Any rule that you create will become part of the list and remain there until the router is Reset.
(Resetting the router will restore all settings to default values and remove any custom rules that have been added.)
