    Bothered about failing Shield Up due to Port 113 reported as Closed?

    For most routers, it seems that simply port-forwarding all Port 113 traffic to an out-of-range IP address is sufficent to stealth Port 113. That's not enough for this router.

    Two steps are required:
    - Port-forward all Port 113 traffic to 192.168.0.250 (that's what I used), and;
    - Also define 192.168.0.250 as DMZ.

    That'll pass Shields Up for the EBR-2310 Router.

    Hope this helps!

    I have always just forwarded port 113 to itself and that will do it also. At least it will on a Linksys. With my AlphaShield I don't have to worry about that as it stealths all ports.

    Yeah, I have an old DLink DI-524 and all I have to do is forward 113 to 192.168.0.200 and that takes care of it. Nothing else....
