In today's article, I'll share quite an easy tutorial on how to configure TP-Link Wireless N Router WR840N for a LAN to allow connections from the internet using Radmin software.
For the ease of this article, I will not cover in depths details how to configure Radmin, for that follow official guidelines (or leave a question in comment form). Today we are talking about port forwarding in router setup and firewall settings for Windows 10. Despite I'm providing details for TP-Link Wireless N Router WR840N, the further written should apply for the most routers.
Port forwarding / Virtual Server
Visit your routers admin dashboard, for TP-Link routers 192.168.0.1, log in with username and password (if default, then admin: admin)
Locate Virtual server, under Forwarding
Port forwarding on TP-Link Wireless router
Click on Add New:
By default Radmin is using port 4889, if you are OK with that, enter 4889 in Service Port field, IP Address, enter your Static IP, leave the rest to default. Click Save.
Now, if you are going to use Radmin for more than just one PC, you should add and configure each new server with the different and unique port. For example PC - 1 port 4889, PC-2 port 4890, PC-3 port 4891 and so on
Configure Firewall for Windows 10
Now, you should add an exception to Firewall, for Windows 10, open Control Panel -> System and Security - > Windows Firewall
From the left pane choose Advanced settings
Click on Inbound Rules and New inbound rule
Inbound rule wizard
Choose Port, click on Next
Enter port number, for Radmin default - 4889
Leave defaults for the next window
Name: Give it a name, for example, Radmin
You are done.
Now test your settings, if everything done right, you should be able to connect with Radmin over LAN. If you encounter any issues, leave me a comment.
