How do I open ports on the Archer C8, C9, C5 V2, router?
Access the web interface of Archer C8 as an example.
Please click here to access the web interface.
Click Advanced on the top, then on the left side, click Forwarding->Virtual Servers->Add New.
Type the Service port which you want to open and the IP Address of your device that you want to open the port for; The Internal Port you can put in the same as the Service Port or leave it blank. Select Protocol to TCP, UDP or ALL; Change Status to Enabled->Save
Since the Forwarding rules are related to IP Address of the device, it is suggested to set up a static IP for your device that needs to open the ports. If you are not sure how to configure static IP on the device, you may do an Address Reservation so that IP will always be assigned to the device.
