I was sent a HG 659 when I signed up with TPG NBN and would like to enable port forwarding on it so that I can VNC into my network. Is there a guide that I can follow to get this up and running?

  1. Setup a static ip address on either your computer or device that you want to forward a port to.
  2. Login to your Huawei HG659 router.
  3. Navigate to the port forwarding section.
    • Click the Internet link.
    • Click the Forwarding link.
  4. Create a port forward entry.

Depends on what application or games you gonna use you will need to configured it to it appropriately.

Hope this helps.

Good news! Huawei HG659 has settings to enable port forwarding.

 

But before we do that, if you haven't already done so, please:

  • Setup a static IP address on either your computer or device that you want to forward a port to.
  • Login to your Huawei HG659 router
    • Go to http://192.168.1.1 on your browser
    • Log in to modem using username admin and password admin

On the opening page of the router, click the Internet link near the top of the page.

 

Click the Forwarding link near the left of the page.

 

Now make sure the following information are handy:

  • Application - the name of your VNC application that will use port forwarding
  • IP Address - The IP Address to forward to should be the same "static IP address" that you have already setup on your PC
  • Application Ports used by your VNC application
 
Click the New Port Mapping link near the center of the page.

 

Click the Add Port Mapping Application link near the center of the page.

 

Click the New link near the bottom of the page.


Now enter the following settings. Please refer to your VNC application documentation.
  • Name
  • External Port
  • Internal Port
  • Protocol

When you are finished, click the Save button.


This brings you back to the previous screen. Enter the following settings:

  • Mapping Name - the name you want to give this port forwarding setup; no spaces allowed
  • Application - your VNC application
  • Internal Host - your static IP address

When you are finished, click the Save button.
