How do I configure port mapping rules on my HUAWEI router
Port mapping allows you to map a port on your router's WAN IP address to a computer within a LAN. When you use the Internet to access a specific port on the WAN IP address (for example, in order to access a webcam on a home network), the router will check the port value against the port mapping rules, then map your service request to the specific port on the local IP of the computer.
To configure port mapping rules:
- For routers that feature self-adaptive ports, you do not need to distinguish between WAN and LAN ports.
- Routers currently support setting 32 port mapping rules.
The internal port and external port can only be specified, the port range cannot be specified.

Can't port forward from HG8245H
I was going to play Minecraft with friends, so I decided to host the server. Creating it was easy, but connecting to it remotely not. I had to watch many tutorials on how to do this, yet the port 25565 won't open, even after restarting the PC and the router itself.
What I've tried:
- Creating inbound/outbound rules to allow access to the 25565 port.
- Turning off Windows Security (if that helps)
- Setting a static private IP address
- Allowing Java to go through the firewall
- Router: Huawei - HG8245H
- Connection: Lan (4)
More on detail:
I added a port mapping configuration which establishes what port (25565) could be accessed. My private and external IP.
I created firewall rules which allow the port 25565 to be accessed, this applies to inbound and outbound rules and uses both protocols (UDP & TCP)
- I turned off all Windows Security protection settings.
- I set a private static IP.
- And I allowed Java instances through the firewall.
- In the server.properties file the specified port is specified which I open in all possible ways. Also, a demonstration that the server horks but only on localhost (0), but no in remote mode (***.***.***.***:25565)
Port checking attempts
After restarting my PC and router after all the changes made I tried again to check if the port 25565 was open (several websites) but it was not, this are the results.
- Sometimes ISPs will use CGNAT (Carrier-Grade NAT) to assign multiple customers one external IP. If your ISP does this, it's impossible for you to open a port to the internet. For more information, what are the first two octets (i.e. the A and B from A.B.C.D) of your external IP as shown in your router's configuration page? – Sam Forbis Aug 7, 2020 at 4:16
- Yeah, I noticed that in other computers of my local network they had the same external IP, that's why I can't port forward? How I solve this, please tell me. Nevertheless, I can't tell you my two octets, you know because of hackers. – Tundra Spirit Aug 7, 2020 at 23:29
- Well, that's actually why I only asked for the first two octets, you know, because that would mean I only have a 1/64,536 chance of guessing your IP :) if it starts with 192, 172, or 10, you're under a CGNAT. Unless it's 172. In that case you're under CGNAT if the second octet is between 16 and 32. – Sam Forbis Aug 7, 2020 at 23:50
- it is none of the numbers you mentioned, so... I will use NGrok it seems promising if you can give a suggestion also, it would be appreciated. – Tundra Spirit Aug 8, 2020 at 0:09
- That's the external IP as listed in your router config page or the one you get when you Google "what's my IP"? You shouldn't need to use anything other than regular port forwarding if it's the one in the router config page. – Sam Forbis Aug 8, 2020 at 0:18

I recently got a Huawei HG8245H modem. A router is connected to the Huawei modem. My computer is directly connected to the Huawei modem, not the router. I've been trying to forward a port, but whenever I use a port checker with my IP from websites like ipchicken.com, it says that the port is closed. Here's a screenshot of my forwarded port.

[quotemsg=21004834,0,2727649]Also I noticed something strange. Is the 100.76.x.x supposed to be my public IP? It does not match the IP which is displayed on websites like ipchicken.com. The one displayed there is 103.217.x.x.[/quotemsg] Well that's interesting! Normally your WAN ip is your public ip. But if they're different, than you can't port forward based on your public IP. Something else lies between your WAN and that public IP, and that would require port forwarding from that public IP to your WAN ip. This is exactly what happens when the ISP places you on a private IP. But I've never seen it done w/ what normally is a public IP. But perhaps your ISP has decided to place you on a public IP, but it's still internal to his network and not directly accessible...
[quotemsg=21000812,0,2727649]I recently got a Huawei HG8245H modem. A router is connected to the Huawei modem. My computer is directly connected to the Huawei modem, not the router. I've been trying to forward a port, but whenever I use a port checker with my IP from websites like ipchicken.com, it says that the port is closed. Here's a screenshot of my forwarded port. (Click here) [/quotemsg] You must also enter the External Port Number and External Source Port Number (same as Internal Port Number entry). Leave the External Source IP Address blank.
You do NOT want to use the External Source Port Number, anymore than you typically want to use the External Source IP Address. Why External Source Port Number is even offered as an option is baffling. It's highly likely the External Source Port Number is arbitrary. But the use of the External Source IP Address would make sense if you wanted to limit access to the port forward to someone from a specific public IP. Frankly, I don't know why they didn't put External Source Port Number right underneath External Source IP Address. Would have made more sense. Placing it in the subsequent section is misleading. Typically what you need is Internal Host, Protocol, Internal Port Number, and External Port Number. Leave anything referencing "Source" blank/zeroes.
[quotemsg=21001782,0,341854]You do NOT want to use the External Source Port Number, anymore than you typically want to use the External Source IP Address...[/quotemsg] Thank you both so much for your answers. Unfortunately, the issue still remains. (Note: In fact this is what I was initially trying, both internal and external ports, excluding the source ports. I'm not sure why it wasn't there in the photo I shared earlier.) Here's a link to some screenshots of my new configuration along with the result of a port checking tool online.

Btw, please clarify the following statement in your opening post. I recently got a Huawei HG8245H modem. A router is connected to the Huawei modem. My computer is directly connected to the Huawei modem, not the router . According to my research, the Huawei HG8245H is a combo modem+router. You then state your computer is connected directly to the modem. But that's not possible w/ a modem+router unless it's placed in bridge mode. Bridge mode demotes the device to being just a modem. All routing functions are disabled and irrelevant, including port forwarding. It's up to either your computer's firewall to allow or not allow traffic in from the modem, or if you've connected some other router to that modem, to port forward on that other router. The point I'm getting at is, your opening post is a bit confusing. I would have expected to you to just say that you have Huawei HG8245H modem+router, and your computer is connected to one of its LAN ports. Period. And in that case, you would port forward on the Huawei HG8245H modem+router. But you didn't. You went out of your way to say it's connected to the modem, not the router. So I want to be sure we're all on the same page here. As I said, if the Huawei HG8245H modem+router has indeed been placed in bridge mode (which ppl sometimes do because they want to use their own router w/ that device), then port forwarding on the Huawei HG824H will NOT work, since it's now only a modem. That responsibility would pass to either your own router, or whatever other device was directly connected to the Huawei HG824H.
[quotemsg=21004477,0,341854]Btw, please clarify the following... [/quotemsg] Edit 2: Kindly click on this link below which leads to a diagram explaining my situation. (Click here) Thanks for the reply Eibgrad. I am really sorry for the confusion I may have caused. I wasn't fully aware of the proper terminology. Allow me to clarify what my situation is. An optic cable enters into my house into the Huawei. The Huawei has 4 LAN ports. One of these is connected to my PC through a LAN cable, and another one of the four is connected to a router in my house through a LAN cable, because the Huawei's Wifi capabilities were insufficient for our usage. I had the exact same set-up before, but instead of the Huawei there was a ZTE router/modem, in which port forwarding worked perfectly. Edit: The Huawei also does send Wifi signals, they just didn't reach all the rooms in the house so we plugged a router into it through a LAN cable and placed that router near those zones with weak signal. Thank you so much for your time. Kind Regards, Danish
Ok, so this other router you were originally speaking of is completely irrelevant to the discussion. Any chance your ISP has you on a *private* IP network rather than a public IP? In order to preserve the limited number of available public IPs in the IPv4 space, some ISPs are known to place their customers on the private IP space (e.g., 192.168.x.x, 10.x.x.x, 172.16.x.x). You can verify this by checking the IP assigned to the WAN on your Huawei HG8245H modem+router. If it's a private IP, then port forwarding won't work! It *must* be a public IP.
[quotemsg=21004738,0,341854]Ok, so this other router you were originally speaking... [/quotemsg] Thanks for such a quick response. Kindly click on this link below which leads to a diagram explaining my situation. (Click here) Moreover, as for the WAN information, the same link above should also have a photo of my WAN information. Kind Regards, Danish
The good news is, 100.76.x.x is a public IP. So port forwarding should work.
[quotemsg=21004813,0,341854]The good news is, 100.76.x.x is a public IP. So port forwarding should work.[/quotemsg] That's great. But in the photo there are two items under the heading of WAN. The second one starts with 10, so does that have any significance? Really by the way, thank you so much.
Also I noticed something strange. Is the 100.76.x.x supposed to be my public IP? It does not match the IP which is displayed on websites like ipchicken.com. The one displayed there is 103.217.x.x.
[quotemsg=21004827,0,2727649][quotemsg=21004813,0,341854]The good news is, 100.76.x.x is a public IP. So port forwarding should work.[/quotemsg] That's great. But in the photo there are two items under the heading of WAN. The second one starts with 10, so does that have any significance? Really by the way, thank you so much. [/quotemsg] That appears to be for your VOIP adapter. And it does appear to be a private IP. However, that's not unusual. The VOIP is probably using a VPN client to connect over the WAN to a VPN server, and the tunnel established by the VPN usually uses private IPs. So nothing unusual there.
[quotemsg=21004834,0,2727649]Also I noticed something strange. Is the 100.76.x.x supposed to be my public IP? It does not match the IP which is displayed on websites like ipchicken.com.

Or at least explain why your WAN ip (which he assigns to your router) is not the same as the public IP you see from ipchicken.

[quotemsg=21004877,0,341854]... [/quotemsg] Thank you so much for helping me! You were right. Apparently my ISP used to give out static IPs for free to all its customers, but recently decided to charge for it, and naturally turned ours into a dynamic IP. According to them, if I get a static IP for an extra monthly free, I would be able to port forward. Thank you so much, eibgrad, for your constant time and efforts in helping me. Kind Regards, Danish

External Resources SANS Internet Storm Center: port 8245
Notes: Port numbers in computer networking represent communication endpoints. Ports are unsigned 16-bit integers (0-65535) that identify a specific process, or network service. IANA is responsible for internet protocol resources, including the registration of commonly used port numbers for well-known internet services. Well Known Ports: 0 through 1023. Registered Ports: 1024 through 49151. Dynamic/Private : 49152 through 65535. TCP ports use the Transmission Control Protocol, the most commonly used protocol on the Internet and any TCP/IP network. TCP enables two hosts to establish a connection and exchange streams of data. TCP guarantees delivery of data and that packets will be delivered in the same order in which they were sent. Guaranteed communication/delivery is the key difference between TCP and UDP. UDP ports use the Datagram Protocol. Like TCP, UDP is used in combination with IP (the Internet Protocol) and facilitates the transmission of datagrams from one computer to applications on another computer, but unlike TCP, UDP is connectionless and does not guarantee reliable communication; it's up to the application that received the message to process any errors and verify correct delivery. UDP is often used with time-sensitive applications, such as audio/video streaming and realtime gaming, where dropping some packets is preferable to waiting for delayed data. When troubleshooting unknown open ports, it is useful to find exactly what services/processes are listening to them. This can be accomplished in both Windows command prompt and Linux variants using the "netstat -aon" command. We also recommend runnig multiple anti-virus/anti-malware scans to rule out the possibility of active malicious software. For more detailed and personalized help please use our forums.

US Border Officials Are Closing a Remote Arizona Crossing Because of Overwhelming Migrant Arrivals
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection says it will temporarily close south and northbound traffic to vehicle and pedestrians at the remote Lukeville, Arizona border crossing with Mexico
FILE - A family of five claiming to be from Guatemala and a man stating he was from Peru, in pink shirt, walk through the desert after crossing the border wall in the Tucson Sector of the U.S.-Mexico border, Aug. 29, 2023, in Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument near Lukeville, Ariz. On Monday, Nov. 27, Customs and Border Protection said it was closing one of two bridges to vehicles in Eagle Pass, Texas, a town of about 30,000 people that, for a while last year, was the busiest corridor for illegal crossings. It is also reducing vehicle entries in Lukeville, a remote desert crossing that has become a major migration route in recent months. (AP Photo/Matt York, File) Matt York
PHOENIX (AP) — So many migrants are crossing from Mexico into the United States around remote Lukeville, Arizona , that U.S. officials say they will close the port of entry there so that the operations officials who watch over vehicle and pedestrian traffic going both ways can help Border Patrol agents arrest and process the new arrivals.
Customs and Border Protection announced Friday that the temporary closure of the crossing will start Monday as officials grapple with changing migration routes that have overwhelmed Border Patrol agents stationed there. Arizona's U.S. senators and governor called planned closure “unacceptable.”
Customs and Border Protection said it is "surging all available resources to expeditiously and safely process migrants” and will “continue to prioritize our border security mission as necessary in response to this evolving situation.”
The area around the desert crossing has become a major migration route in recent months, with smugglers dropping off people from countries as diverse as Senegal, India and China. Most of them are walking into the U.S. west of Lukeville through gaps in the wall, then head east toward the official border crossing to surrender to the first agents they see in hopes for a chance at asylum.
The Border Patrol made 17,500 arrests for illegal crossings during the past week in the agency's Tucson sector, John Modlin, the sector chief, said Friday, That translates to a daily average of 2,500, well above its daily average of 1,700 in September, when Tucson was already the busiest corridor for illegal crossings by far along U.S.-Mexico border.
Customs and Border Protection blamed the hundreds of people arriving daily around Lukeville on “smugglers peddling disinformation to prey on vulnerable individuals.”
It was unclear how long the crossing would be shut.
Although it is remote, the Lukeville border crossing is the one regularly used to travel from Arizona to Puerto Peñasco, or Rocky Point, a resort area in the Mexican state of Sonora on the Sea of Cortez. Americans also drive through the crossing to visit the border community of Sonoyta for a meal, shop or to get less expensive dental and medical care.
Some Mexican children ride a northbound bus across the border every day to go to school.
Arizona Senators Mark Kelly and Kyrsten Sinema, along with Gov. Katie Hobbs, blasted the planned closure and demanded better solutions from President Joe Biden's administration.
“This is an an unacceptable outcome that further destabilizes our border, risks the safety of our communities, and damages our economy by disrupting trade and tourism,” they said in a joint statement. “The Federal Government must act swiftly to maintain port of entry operations, get the border under control, keep Arizona communities safe, and ensure the humane treatment of migrants.”
Kelly and Hobbs, both Democrats, and Sinema, an independent who was elected as a Democrat, also criticized “partisan politicians who parrot talking points while watching the border further deteriorate."
They said those politicians should instead ”reject the echo chamber and work with us to get something done and keep our communities safe.”
An average of 3,140 people in vehicles and 184 pedestrians entered the U.S. daily in Lukeville during October, according to the U.S. Transportation Department’s latest figures.
Travelers will still be able to cross into or out of the United States through Nogales, Arizona, a three-hour drive to the east, or San Luis, Arizona, a two-hour drive to the west.
Customs and Border Protection earlier this week began limiting traffic at the Lukeville port. The agency on Monday also closed one of two bridges to vehicles in Eagle Pass, Texas , a town of about 30,000 people that, for a while last year, was the busiest corridor for illegal crossings.

Christmas Trees: Are we decorating too early?
When it comes to decorating for Christmas, there are no set rules - but how early - or late - do people start to trim their tree?
It seems everyone has an opinion on just when is the right time to bring out the festive decor.
For most it's sometime around the start of December, but some people trim up as soon as the nights draw in.
Traditionally, Christmas decorations should go up on the first day of Advent, which this year is 3 December, the fourth Sunday before Christmas.
Mike Beatson-Smith has had his tree up for several weeks already.
The creative director from Ilkley, West Yorkshire, put the tree up first - and decorated the outside of the house a week later.
He said: "Halloween comes down, and Christmas goes up.
"We have about 20,000 lights up and a pink tinsel curtain covers the glass apex of the house, which is 15ft high and goes right up to the ceiling.
"When I tell people I'm putting my tree up at the start of November, I get some odd looks but they all know that I'm Mr Claus, so they just go with it!"
This year, Mr Beatson-Smith has already hosted a Christmas dinner for eight people - on Bonfire Night.
He said his love of Christmas comes from childhood, when he remembers the excitement of driving through Hull with his parents, looking at the festive lights.
"Christmas starts early for me, and in an economic crisis we need every bit of cheer we can get," he said.
Another early festive decorator is interior designer and influencer Siobhan Murphy, from Castleford, Leeds, whose style can be summed up in the title of her book, "More Is More Decor".
She said: "I love Christmas and especially the build-up, getting the house trimmed up, the Christmas songs on the radio, everyone asking "When are you putting your tree up?"
"I love seasonal styling, so for me it's the earlier the better. I like to squeeze out every single second of festive joy."
She said her work as an influencer means Christmas advertising campaigns need to be prepared long before the festive season, often in September.
"I have been known to shoot a campaign and then think, well it's up now and it looks pretty, so I'm just going to keep it up!", she said.
"Like in all aspects of life, my advice is always do what makes you feel good."
Christmas lights are not always just about the decor - sometimes they are more sentimental.
Take Saskia, from Bempton Grove in Hull, who - along with her two siblings - decorates their house inside and out on 1 November each year.
For them, it's something they do in memory of their mum, who died on Boxing day 13 years ago.
She said: "We were out in the rain, we were out in the wind, nothing stops us from putting things up. People have been walking past and taking photos, and saying how good it looks.
"We wake up in the morning and it just makes us really happy."
She added: "It's really sentimental for us and our family. We've gone a good few years without her and it makes us happier as a family.
"I think it would make her proud of us all."
On the opposite end of the scale, many people leave their tree decorating until much later. Marianna Easter lives in West Yorkshire but grew up in Norway - and has adopted the Scandinavian tradition of celebrating Christmas on 24 December.
She said: "It's a Scandinavian thing. The idea is that Little Christmas Eve - the day before Christmas Eve - is when you get ready for Christmas.
"It's a day to spend preparing for the festivities ahead - from food to decorations."
She adds: "When I was a child, Little Christmas Eve would be set out to prepare the tree and get everything ready. Christmas Eve was the day when we would have our main celebration, when we have our Christmas dinner and all the presents."
Now married with two daughters, aged 11 and seven, the family like to mark the traditions from Norway and the UK.
"We open our Christmas presents on Christmas Eve, usually after a lunch of celeriac soup, salmon, and some pickled cucumber, things like that.
"On Christmas Day we still have turkey and all the trimmings, so I like to differentiate."
The family also leave a carrot and mince pie out for Father Christmas, but also some Christmas porridge for the Nisse - the Norwegian version of Santa Claus.
According to folklore, the Nisse (or Jul Nisse) guards farm animals and plays tricks on children if they don't leave porridge out for him.
"The porridge is slightly tart and you sweeten it with sugar, cinnamon and a knob of butter " Mrs Easter said. "It's very creamy and delicious."

Fastest Huawei EchoLife HG8245H Router Port Forwarding Instructions
This is the port forwarding guide for the Huawei EchoLife HG8245H V3R013C10S112 Orange . We also have port forwarding guides for the following related routers: Huawei EchoLife HG8245H V3R015C10S101 Pick the guide that most closely matches your router.
The Huawei Orange EchoLife HG8245H router has a basic firewall that defends your home network against unwanted access from the Internet. A firewall by design blocks incoming connections. Sometimes it becomes necessary to unblock some of these connections for a game or application. This process is called to open a port . The process of opening a port is more commonly called a port forward because you are forwarding a port directly through the firewall to a device on your home network.
To open a port for the Huawei Orange EchoLife HG8245H router you need to:
- Setup a static IP address on the specific device you are forwarding ports to.
- Login to your Huawei Orange EchoLife HG8245H router.
- Click the Forward Rules link.
- Click on Port Mapping Configuration .
- Finally, create a port forward entry .
Don't worry if these steps seem difficult at first, we will walk you through every step for your Huawei Orange EchoLife HG8245H router.
We think that forwarding a port should be easy. That's why we created Network Utilities . Our software does everything that you need to forward a port.
Get Started Now!
When you use Network Utilities you get your port forwarded right now!
It is important to setup a static ip address in the device that you are forwarding a port to. This ensures that your ports will remain open even after your device reboots.
- Recommended - Our free Static IP Setter will set up a static IP address for you.
- Another way to get a permanent IP address is to set up a DHCP reservation.
This step is important because you want a permanent IP address in your device. If you do not set up a permanent IP address in your device, then when you device reboots it may get a new IP address.
It is now time to login to the Huawei Orange EchoLife HG8245H router. This router has a web user interface, meaning you need to login to it using a web browser. The web browser you use does not matter. Some common options are, Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox, or Chrome.
Go ahead and open up the web browser of your choice and find the address bar . It should look something like this:
Above is an example of what a web browser address bar looks like. Find the address bar in your router and type in your router's IP address.
The default Huawei EchoLife HG8245H IP Address is: 192.168.100.1
Once you have finished entering the IP Address you can simply press the Enter key. If all goes as it should you will see the login screen:
If you see a box prompting you for your Account and Password then you are on the correct screen.
- The Default Huawei EchoLife HG8245H Router Username is: telecomadmin
- The Default Huawei EchoLife HG8245H Router Password is: admintelecom
After entering the Account/username and password go ahead and click the Login button
Having Trouble with the Huawei Username and Password If the username and password did not work , we recommend trying some other Huawei usernames and passwords. Find them here on this Default Huawei Router Passwords page. If none of the default Huawei usernames and passwords worked , it is possible you changed the username and password in the past and have forgotten. It might be time to consider a reset. Learn how to do this in our How to Reset a Router guide.
It is now time to find the port forwarding section of the router. To do that follow these steps:
Along the top of the page select the link labeled Forward Rules .
The menu on the left changes. Pick the new option of Port Mapping Configuration .
Here are the ports to forward for Xbox Live : TCP Ports: 3074 UDP Ports: 3074 If you are looking for the ports for a different application you can find it by either: Browsing our List of Games Check out our our List of Games by Genre See our List of all Applications
Verify that you have the Enable Port Mapping checkbox checked.
In the WAN Name dropdown box select an available connection.
From the Protocol box select the protocol for the ports that you want to forward.
If you are forwarding a range of ports, enter the lowest number of the range into the Start External Port , Start External Source Port and Start Internal Port boxes. Then enter the highest number of the range into the End External Port , End External Source Port and End Internal Port boxes. If you are forwarding a single port, enter that port number into the Start External Port , Start External Source Port , End External Port , End External Source Port , Start Internal Port and End Internal Port boxes.
Enter the name of the program into the Mapping Name box. It doesn't really matter what you put into this box, but something that will remind you why these ports are being forwarded is be a good idea.
Enter the IP address of the device that you want to forward ports to into the Internal Host box. This can be either the IP address of your computer or the IP address of another device on your network.
Click the Apply button when you are all done.
Don't forget to click the Apply button after each port forward entry you make.
Test if Your Ports are Open
The last step involves checking to see if the ports actually opened. To do this we recommend using our Network Utilities tool, which includes a free Open Port Checker. This port checker is the only one online that has guaranteed results.
