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.
