This page will show you how to setup a port forward on the Cisco Linksys-E1200 router.
If you are not sure what port forwarding is you can read our What is Port Forwarding guide to help get started.
Port forwarding the Cisco Linksys-E1200 to your computer can be more reliable if you first configure a static IP address on your computer. We have instructions to setup a static IP address for Windows 7, Windows 8, and a variety of other devices on our Static IP Address Settings page.
Please note that while setting up a static IP address on your computer is optional, it is still a very good idea to go ahead and do it. In the long run it will make your port forward much more reliable.
To get started forwarding a port you need to login to your Cisco Linksys-E1200 router. If you are already logged in you can skip this step.
To login to the Cisco Linksys-E1200, follow our Cisco Linksys-E1200 Login Guide.
This guide begins on the Basic Setup page of the Cisco Linksys-E1200 router. To forward a port, tick the link at the top of the page labeled Applications & Gaming.
You now have two choices, if you are forwarding only one port, tick the choice of Single Port Forwarding. If you are forwarding a range of ports, tick the option of Port Range Forwarding.
Now to forward a port, make the following changes:
