    These are the options that need to be filled out on my router's port forwarding page.


    Select Application: There is a pulldown menu with Http and https as an option but not rpc


    Application Name:
    Protocol:
    Global Port Range: ____ - ____
    Local Base Port:

    Can anyone help me with what to fill out on this page. I know the ports that are needed are 80, 443, and 1413. But not sure what to do with that information.

    All you need is to figure ports are may not be used.

    For your settings:

    I believe the application is for title for the operation.
    Protocol, I believe is what device should it go to. May be a dropdown with a list of your devices.
    Global port would be the port to use from outside of your network. This would re-direct traffic to the local port. Global is set for a range and you only need 1 port for each.

    In this instance, a Global port : 150 - 150, Local port: 80
    2nd setup: global 151 - 151, local: 443
    3rd: Global 152 - 152, local: 1413

    In KMTTG, you must manually add a Tivo tab: RemoteTivo (example title for Tivo name)
    For the IP address, you must use your outside internet IP address. (Not something like 192.168.1.100)
    Wan HTTP: 150
    Wan HTTPS: 151
    Wan RPC: 152

    Click ADD button, then OK, restart KMTTG.

    You would have a new Tivo tab in KMTTG, but it would not work unless you are outside of the network where the Tivo is.

    ---

    I have done this and it works while my Tivo is still at my home network and I connect the laptop via my cell phone's hotspot. The remote Tivo tab works, but the local Tivo tabs doesn't. and vice versa when connected to the same network.

    I think I understand most of your entire message. However, when you say “All you need is to figure ports are may not be used.” Do you mean that I need to see which ports are used and not used so I can use an unused port number as the global port range?

    Also, when using the IP address in kmttg for the tivo, do I use my WAN router IP?

    And lastly, how do I find out which ports are used and unused?

    The most widely used are 80 and 443 and most are blocked from outside of the network, except for the browser.

    You can use my example in the previous post, 150, 151, 152, for the respective port settings. (You can make up any port number, 11123, 22123, 123, 456, whatever would work.)

    Port forwarding is like what it means, forwards traffic between the internet and what device its meant for.
    Your WAN IP address may or may not be what you want.

    go to whatismyip.com and what you want is the Public IP address. Your internal network would be the private network.
