Port Forwarding : Step by Step

Hello guys,

Aaditya Purani here. Today i got a request to make a blog on Port-Forwarding by one of my friend. So here is complete step by step tutorial of port forwarding..! Many people get problem in port forward, so it will be helpful for them.

I am Using MTS router, so i will show you according to it.  But for every the logic and point is the same only

Here we go,

So first of all disable proxy if you are using and keep the Public IP real.

Okay to test weather port is open or not.

Step 1: Go to http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/ and check Port 80, because i will be forwarding port 80 in this tutorial. You can forward any port. There is no restriction.




So you can see  that my port is closed on 116.xxx.xx.xxx . I have hided my IP due to security purposes.


Step 2: Go to your router Admin panel. Put in your address bar. For some routers it is .


So here is the main page of my router-panel. which is showing me some statistics.

Step 3: Click on Login . Enter default username: admin , password : admin
If that doesn’t work then keep username as admin and password as password

Out of both one will work, if you haven’t changed.


Step 4: Go to settings -> Security -> Special Applications : MTS user

Go to settings -> Port -Forwarding : BSNL user

Go to settings -> Port – Forwarding : Reliance user




Step 5: Click on ADD and then fill up as i show in the below picture


So set up port 80 and keep open protocol TCP/UDP .

Step-6 : Click on Apply and save the settings.

Step-7 : Open netcat . Write the command netcat -nlvp 80 (For Kali Linux )

nc -nlvp 80 (For windows user)

and go to http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/
and select Port 80 and click on “CHECK”.

As soon as you click , you will see in your terminal then a response from yougetsignal came and it is connected. See pic below


So Voila, you can see Port 80 is open on 116.xxx.xx.xxx . Port forwarding done


Note: You must quit your Skype and Stop the localhost  to forward port 80, or else you can choose port 1337 or anything.

I hope you like the tutorial
