Belkin router and port forwarding!?

Okay guys. I'm not a complete flid, but I do feel it at the moment. I've read the faq's and I'm going around in circles.

I have a belkin router running 3 computers off it. The firewall on it is switched off, as is my firewall on my own laptop. As I see it, or rather have read it on here amongst the reams of literature I've gone through, I need to port forward.

How can I port forward through the router?

The log I am getting is:

<02/17/04@15:46:15> [source] connected from 127.0.0.1
<02/17/04@15:46:15> [source] icy-name:Jimma's server ; icy-genre:a bit of everything

<02/17/04@15:51:04> [yp_add] yp.shoutcast.com gave error (nak)
<02/17/04@15:51:04> [yp_add] yp.shoutcast.com gave extended error (Cannot see your station/computer (IP: 81.103.196.234:8000) from the Internet, disable Internet Sharing/NAT/firewall/ISP cache (Connection timed out))

I am sure you guys have already answered this before, but please can you answer it here, I don't want to be directed to pages of what appear to lead me round in a circle. Can someone just post a definitive answer in here please.

It's a Belkin 4 port router, dsl and cable. This is what I am confronted with when I check its status:

Thanks in anticipation. A step by step guide for a flid would be helpful!!

Look in the NAT section for "port forwarding" or "virtual server".

in the nat section of my router or what?

what if there is nothing in there. Besides which, the bastard keeps giving me a login error and won't let me get into it anyway.

Try contacting the router manufacturer technical support.

I've now been able to get into my router. But switching nat translation off means I can't use the internet.

How do I go about using my belkin router to port forward, and what can I do?

(see above for the problem)

right, I stuck my ip address in the dmz of the router and the shoutcast thing is connecting fine, the only problem I now have is that I can hear that I have connected, indeed I can play it through windows media player using the ip address I have, but no one else seems to be able to.


PLEASE HELP!!!!

Putting the DNAS in the DMZ is not recommended.

DNAS link: http://yourDNASip:yourDNASport
Listen link: http://yourDNASip:yourDNASport/listen.pls

Replace yourDNASip with the ip of the DNAS (SHOUTcast server) and yourDNASport with the DNAS port (default is 8000)

Example:
If your DNAS ip is 123.345.567.789 and your DNAS portBase is 2112, then your links would be:
DNAS link: http://123.345.567.789:2112
Listen link: http://123.345.567.789:2112/listen.pls

Also, if your router doesn't support local loopback then machines on the same lan as the DNAS (you) need to use the lan ip of the DNAS to connect/listen.
Machines not on the same lan as the DNAS (the rest of the world) need to use the real, world-visible ip of the DNAS to connect/listen.

Please don't give out urls with 127.0.0.1 as the ip. That is a local loopback ip.
See RFC3330 for more information.

Please don't give out urls with 192.168.x.y or 10.x.y.z or 172.(16-31).x.y as the ip. That is a private lan ip.
See RFC1918 for more information. Scroll down and look for the section titled:
3. Private Address Space

How to find your ip address (Part I).
How to find your ip address (Part II).

Finally, you can get a static name, such as foo.bar.com (not as cool as that, though ) from http://www.no-ip.com or one of the other myriad of Dynamic DNS Services.
Then, your links would be:
DNAS link: http://foo.bar.com:yourDNASport
Listen link: http://foo.bar.com:yourDNASport/listen.pls

Please read some polite advice.
