I have fios with their ActionTech MI424WR router.  I have a dynamic dns account set up

I know that port 80 is blocked but I am lost as to how to set up a rule to get to resolve
(I will forward port 80 to 88)

I need a simple guide within the router interface as to how I can set this up.  I have configured routers in the past so I am not completely lost.

    Im not in front of my router right now, but once you've logged in go to "firewall" then "port forwarding". If you are familiar with routers you should be able to figure it out from there. . . Basically you can 1) allow a request from any source or specify a range, 2) specify TCP or UDP, 3) specify a port number and 4) direct requests for that port to a specific device.

    Good luck

    The following outlines how to configure port forwarding for your specific router for port 80.

    However, DDNS should not require port forwarding. It uses port 80 by default but it is outgoing rather than incoming. Port forwarding is for incoming. If you can access the internet using a browser port 80 outgoing is open.

    Can you explain the exact problem or error, and advise as to which DDNS service you have subscribed, dyndns, no-ip, or other.
    It may be the windows firewall blocking the return requests. Try disabling or adding your DDNS application to the exception list. Other security services by McAfee, Symantec, and others can block the DDNS traffic as well.
