Bothered that your router only allows you to open 5 ports. Well, with this simple hack that shall be no more!
Keep in mind, if you want to open all ports to a specific PC/Server, you can make it a DMZ in the settings.
Navigate to the port forwarding page at http://192.168.0.1/port_forwarding.asp.
You’ll notice that if you create 5 services, the
add service button will disappear. In order to add more services, you will need to hack in a snippet of code into the HTML. You’ll need to right click the text that says
Port Forwarding. Then, from the contextual menu, click
Inspect Element. A new window will pop up with
highlighted. Right click the line above it labeled id=”port-forwarding” and click
Edit as HTML. Then change the block from
<div id="port-forwarding" class="module data"> <h2>Port Forwarding</h2> ...
<div id="port-forwarding" class="module data"> <a href="#" onclick="return FormSubmit('portForwardingAdd', 'add', '-1');" class="btn">+ Add Service</a> <h2>Port Forwarding</h2> ...
Just click anywhere on the webpage again and you should see a new
add service button pop up, you can then use that button to open more ports. Repeat the process for each additional set of ports you want to open.
