Click “Save” and reboot the router. and click the "Virtual Servers" submenu. you must change the WEB management port number to avoid interference. click the “Security” menu on the left of your browser. DMZ 4.1. To change the WEB management port number: Login to the router. On the "DMZ" page.TL-WR340G/TL-WR340GD Note: 54M Wireless Router User Guide Your opposite side should call your WAN IP.1:8080 in the address field of the web browser. On the "Virtual Server" page. such as 8080. type a port number except 80.168. Remote Management Note: If the above configuration takes effect. which is displayed on the “Status” page. 4) How to enable DMZ Host: Login to the router.1. Login to the router. click “Enable” radio and type your IP address into the “DMZ Host IP Address” field. what should I do? Because the WEB Server port 80 will interfere with the WEB management port 80 on the router. remember to “Enable” and “Save”. 69 . into the "Web Management Port" field. click the “Forwarding” menu on the left of your browser.169 as an example.1. and click "DMZ" submenu. and your IP address below the IP Address. assuming 192.
