How do I set up my router for remote login to my server?


Your router is the device used to direct internet traffic to your computer. If you want to access your Sidekick data from anywhere in the world through the internet, you must first set up your router so that you can access the data.* When you dial in, this will direct you to the correct computer in your network that holds your data.

 

 

1. Your server's personal settings can be found by going to Help>Internet Router Setup on the menu bar in Sidekick. Print these settings.

2. Now, physically find your router and note the brand name.

3. You will need to log into your router to bring up a menu to change the settings. See Below.

 

 

If you have a DLink brand router:

Open Internet Explorer and type in the address of the router in the address line (usually 192.168.0.1)

 

When the following screen comes up, type in User name: admin , Password: (leave blank) (unless you have changed these)

 

 Click OK and your router's configuration program will come up.

 

If you have a Linksys brand router:

Open Internet Explorer and type in the address of the router in the address line (usually 192.168.1.1)

When the following screen comes up, type in User name: (leave blank) Password: admin (unless you have changed these)

Click OK and your router's configuration program will come up.

 

If you have a NetGear brand router:

Open Internet Explorer and type in the address of the router in the address line (usually 192.168.0.1)

When the following screen comes up, type in User name (admin), Password: password (unless you have changed these)

Click OK your router's configuration program will come up.

 

For all Routers:

4. Once you have opened up the screen to make changes to your router, there will be different menu options to reach the screen that you need to get to. Each router will have different menu options, and all of them can not be listed here. However, what you need to accomplish is setting up Port Forwarding. It may be called Port Redirection (DLink). The place you are looking for is where you can forward incoming internet traffic to a specific computer on your network. (For LinkSys routers, you will find port forwarding under the Applications and Gaming tab).

5. Now get the printout from step 1 and enter the values in the correct fields. The field names on your screen may be slightly different.

If we haven't provided directions for your router brand, or you are having trouble accessing the menu or changing the router settings, check your particular router manual or user guide for further help.

 

* If your router does not support port forwarding this feature will not work for you.
