Technicolor TG587n v3 - How to Port Foward/ Open ports?

[ Edited ]

For the last 3 months I've been on and off trying to figure out how to correctly Port Foward this router. I've tried every guide on the internet including the 'Open NAT Type' guide, which worked with games such as MW3. I just want to find out how to manually open specific ports.

Trying to portfoward for games such as Terraria, Minecraft, Neverwinter Knights ect.

Help is very accreciated.

EDIT: Once again tried to Portfoward and did everything perfectly but when checking the port in various port checking tools it failed.

Hi Kalacha,

Unfortunately as I've posted in the past port forwarding on these modems are very hit and miss. Your best bet for the open NAT type is to configure a DMZ mode in the modem for a specific device / IP, this generally works. However if you're attempting to host games over the internet for Minecraft etc you may need to invest in a modem / router to control the port forwarding.

Just as a little hint though, both Minecraft and Terraria work fine without port forwarding via freeware called 'Hamachi' by Logmein software.

Hi

I've been trying to use Hamachi for some games as you suggested without having to port forward but I keep getting a blue connection. This is a very big issue as I keep getting severe lag or no connection at all to some games such as Minecraft, terraria etc. Do you have any solutions? Any help would be greatly appreaciated. 

Thanks

Sorry about the delay I've been on holidays.

When you say you've been getting lag in Terraria / Minecraft, bear in mind that if you are both hosting and playing then you do need both a good computer and at least ADSL+2 for the 1MB upload speeds and even then it will be patchy with more than 3 users (Minecraft) and its generally best if they're in the same country.

Terraria works pretty well with 4 international guests with the dedicated server on ADSL+2.

What do you mean by "blue" connection? Also to clarify, my above post was in regards to hosting with hamachi / joining someone else who is hosting with hamachi.

I don't really game much, but I am guessing the connection from modem -> PC will affect it too (WiFi v Ethernet). Hosting games e.t.c. I am guessing it would be best to use a physical connection to avoid any packet loss.

Hi Kalacha,

 

The best instructions I have found for port forwarding the Technicolor modems is here: 

 

Port Forwarding Technicolor Modems

 

I have done this on my home modem and my husband was successfully able to host Minecraft.

 

The trick is that you need to manually configure the ports required for each game.

 

Hope this helps

Kalacha,

 

If you are comfortable with making a telnet session to the TG587, then you could try the following to address the MW3 issue:

 

01. Open a Telnet session to 10.0.0.138
02. Login with user = admin  & password = (blank)

 

Once logged into the telnet session: copy the below and paste it into the telnet window and hit enter.

 

The gateway will do the rest.

 

 


:connection bind application CONE(UDP) port 69
:connection bind application CONE(UDP) port 88
:connection bind application CONE(UDP) port 1863
:connection bind application CONE(UDP) port 2300-2303
:connection bind application CONE(UDP) port 3074-3853
:connection bind application CONE(UDP) port 4658-4659
:connection bind application CONE(UDP) port 10070
:connection bind application CONE(UDP) port 16000
:connection bind application CONE(UDP) port 27900-27901
:upnp config onlydefault enabled
:saveall

Hi

I've tried this and it still doesn't seem to work for my Playstation 4. I still have NAT type 2.

Any other suggestions please?

Hi Jaff,

 

My search on the forums says that NAT 2 is what you want for playstations.

 

Perhaps have a look on the Playstation forum to see what others are doing: http://community.eu.playstation.com

Hey. Not sure if this helps now but I made a quick vid on youtube to show how to port forward for games. Hope it's useful.
