Westell FiOS Router Port Forwarding setup hints
If you have the new FiOS router by Verizon - You will need to take some extra steps in configuring your Port Forward information to make your server visible to the outside world.
In short the best way is to access your routers internal web engine for setup. You do this by opening your favorite browser and typing your root LAN address (192.168.x.1) into the URL field. When the router's home page displays the login screen use "admin" and "password1" in the fields (without the quotes).
Once you have reached the main startup page you will see your network information displayed in graphical format. Looking along the top of the page you should see several Icons. The one to click is "Firewall Settings", then click "yes" to proceed.
Once you have entered this area, look along the left side of the page for "Port Forwarding" link. When you click on that link you should see a page with some existing rules already established by the router. Along the bottom of the rules is "New Entry". Clicking that link will take you to the page for new rule creation. Starting from the top, enter your server's IP address into the local host box. Next click on the drop down box for "Protocols" and select "user defined" from the list.
On the page that opens change the name from "applications" to "Teamspeak" then click on "New Server Ports" link. Choose "UDP" protocol, then source port should be "ANY" and destination should be set to your teampspeak port - IE "8767". Once you have completed this portion you will be back at the "edit service" screen and you should see your port rule listed. Hit "ok" to close this window and retun to "Edit Port Forwarding Rule" page. On this page you should see that your protocol has been assigned "Teamspeak" and it is looking for "UDPAny -> 8767" . Forward to port rule should be left as "same as incoming" and schedule should be set to "always" if you leave the server up 24/7.
You now have your router set up to forward information thru to your server. make sure you hit the apply and OK buttons to 'back out' to the main screen page of your router. Once you have logged off of your router the changes should be set and your server should be working. A good rule of thumb is to make your rule look like the others that are working for you (xfire, AIM or MSN ect...) that way you are more assured of success.
One more good thing to do - reset the logon password to something you can remember as Verizon has a bad habit of leaving the router unsecured.
I plan on adding some screenshots to this if I can get them cut down to 640x480 or so for easy display.
