Tips to open ports on moister router

  1. Remember, if at any time you want to disable any of the ports that you have recently added; because you are no longer using it, you do not need to delete all the information.
  2. If you pay attention, in the configuration section, in the added ports mapping table, it gives you the option to activate or deactivate the ports that you have already saved.
  3. In this way, if you are going to stop using a console for a certain time, or you are going to add another one and you will not use the previous one; you don’t need to delete the data from the console port, just deactivating the function will be enough and you can activate it later if necessary.
  4. If you have followed all the steps and still the port you want to add does not appear in the added port mapping table, it is best to contact Moister.
  5. If when you enter the router configuration the Ports option does not appear, you may have a locked router. This is a very common case of the HGW-2501GN-R2 router.
  6. What is this? A router that can only be configured for ADSL services because they use firmware. Therefore, and in general, direct access from the IP is blocked.
  7. However, a specific configuration can be made to skip moister cascades; but the process is somewhat complex and would be the subject of another article to explain it well.
