Re: port forwarding - accessing modem

Well, you should be able to get into the modem with this address: http://192.168.100.1/

However, port forwarding is something that a router does, not a cable modem.

Re: port forwarding - accessing modem

You already got your answer in the thread you started specifically for this question. What does it have to do with port forwarding?

Re: port forwarding - accessing modem

As was said in the earlier responses, port forwarding is not needed on cable modems. They just pass everything through, except for about 5 ports that they block (and none of them have anything to do with BitTorrent -- they're all involved in NetBIOS and Windows file/printer sharing). You only need port forwarding if you have a router. If you have one and need assistance configuring it, you'll have to provide details like the router model.

Re: port forwarding - accessing modem

I cannot see my ports opening at all specificly ports 22 (ssh) and ports (5900) vnc. Are you guys blocking these ports upstream? My router is configured correctly and is behind the cable modem.

Re: port forwarding - accessing modem

You should really start your own thread, you question doesn't have anythig to do with port forward on a modem (which makes no sense anyway). The short answer is no, those ports are not blocked. Several users have had a problem accessing ssh on their Comcast systems from outside the Comcast network, but they report the problem has mysteriously cleared up. If you are still having an issue, post your details in your own thread.
