Port Forwarding is used to make a device or service in your home network accessible to computers on the internet. Typical applications include allowing remote management to security cameras within the local network, permitting access to HTTP, FTP and other local servers, etc.

Port Forwarding can be used for setting up public services in your local network, such as HTTP, FTP, DNS, POP3/SMTP and Telnet. Different service uses different service port. Port 80 is used in HTTP service, port 21 in FTP service, port 25 in SMTP service and port 110 in POP3 service.

Please verify the service port number before the configuration.

How to setup:

1. Launch the Deco app, tap the Settings icon at the bottom right corner;

2. Tap Advanced -> Port Forwarding -> Create




3. Choose a Service Type, type in the Service Name, tap Internal IP to select a device you want to open ports for, and then type in its External Port and Internal Port (Service Port). Tap Done.

Note: If you leave the Internal Port blank, then the internal ports will be the same as the external ones.

For example, if you set up the External Port as 5000-5001, leave the Internal Port blank. Then the internal port 5000-5001 will be opened automatically after you complete the setup.

Is there a way to limit the source addresses that will be forwarded (ie: Who can access the published service?) Or is it all the internet or nobody?

Would I use this configuration with my C5400v2 router to use away from home to have a wireless network for streaming and be safe or encrypted.

I have a synology which is connected to my Deco m5 in the Lan port. I cannot select the synology device when configuring port forwarding. Can you please let me know how do I select my Synology when configuring port forwarding?

@TP-Link Deco Is there any way to add an IP address without having to select it from the list of available devices? Im currently running a media server from an iMac mini and the server holds its own IP address different from the mac minis but it does not appear in the list of device IP's. I cant manually add it so I can port forward the servers port number. Ho do I do this through the Deco?

@TP-Link Deco 

Really need help to find a way to manually key in the port forwarding IP due to limitations and devices that are running on static IPs.
Is there any other way to do it other than selecting from a list of connected devices?
My device is connected but I cannot find it in the Deco app.

Please advise.

@TP-Link Deco I have exactly the same issue. I find it totally stupid that I cannot just enter the IP of my NAS. For some reason, it is not shown as Online in the Deco app. But it is in the network, I can use it without any issues. Why is not displayed in the app, even though it has a static IP address?

@panzerboy I am seeing the same thing. I have an old NAS with static IP that I have been using for years, and I am still using it in the Deco mesh network without any issues. However, the NAS is not listed in the Deco app or in the web gui http://tplinkdeco.net/

I support the request of allowing port forwarding to a LAN ip adress, it should be an obvious requirement.

Well, for some reason, now it appeared in the list and I could setup the port forwarding. But it's frustrating, don't know exactly why it appeared and whether it will disappear at some point.

@TP-Link Deco 

I have the same problem. I have a Virtual Box running on an old macbook pro and the Virtualbox ip dosent show up in the router.

Is there a way to set a static ip or portforward without the ip address showing in the list???

@TP-Link Deco 

Came onto the community forum to find a solution to this exact problem :(

 

I have the same problem as many above, VirtualBox running Home Assistant, dumb-ass Deco can't see it in the list of devices connected to the network, so I cant add a port forward for it :o

 

A solution would be either -

1 - Fix the list of devices on the network so they are all shown (heck! the tool is already there in the side menu, Wi-Fi Detective, which ironically shows my missing device)

2 - Allow the addition of IP address without selecting from the list.

 

But quick quick!!
