How To: Port Forward Globe Broadband's Prolink H9200

Here's a step by step guide on how to Port Forward Globe's Prolink H9200 to be use in Utorrent.

Port forwarding in Prolink H9200 is a little bit different in Hurricane 9300G, but it is as easy. Torrent downloads are greatly affected if you do not use port forwarding in Globe DSL.

Step 1. You need to set Port 80 in Utorrent for incoming connections. Any other port is blocked by Globe Broadband. Open up Utorrent, at the upper left menu, click on Options > Preferences.

A box will appear like the one below, put 80 on the box next to Port Used for Incoming Connections. And also, remove the check next to Enable UPnP port mapping


To enable Port Forwarding in Prolink Hurricane's H9200, you need to have Static IP address on your PC.

Go to your desktop, Right Click on My Network Places and then click on Properties. Something like the box below will appear, select Local Area Connection, right-click on it and then choose properties.


Double click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)

Internet Protocol Property box will appear. Enter information like the box below:

Ip address: 192.168.1.3 (default assigned ip address when using dynamic ip)
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1

Preferred DNS server: 192.168.1.1



Now that you already configured Utorrent and your static IP address. It is now time to configure your modem. I will borrow pictures from fortforward.com

Open up your favorite browser like Mozilla firefox, Internet Explorer or Opera browser. Type in the address bar 192.168.1.1 (that is the default IP address of your modem)

A box will appear prompting you for your username and password. The default username is admin and the default password is password. This page will appear (click the picture to enlarge):

Click the Services button near the top of the page (click the picture to enlarge):

Select NAT Rule Entry from the NAT Options drop down box.

Click the Add button near the bottom of the page and enter these information, and then click submit.


Click the Close button near the bottom of the page.

Click the IP Filter link near the top of the page.

Select Low from the Security Level drop down box. Select Accept from the Public Default Action, Private Default Action and DMZ Default Action drop down box.

Click the Submit button near the bottom of the page.

Click the Admin button near the top of the page.

You should now see a new menu. In this new menu, click Commit & Reboot.

Click the Commit button near the bottom of the page.

Click the Reboot button near the bottom of the page.

And you're done.

I have tried doing everything that you have instructed but my download speed in utorrent is still slow and worst of all sometimes it is even zero. I think globelines is intentionally blocking downloading of torrents. I am also using PLDT and it has never caused me this type of problem.

I have tried whatever you said but my uTorrent still no connection. what should i do?? i really confiused!!! please reply me as soon as you read this!!!
thanks a lot!!!

Thanks a lot pre! I followed every details you mentioned and i finally got that network "green check" connection on uTorrent client. Now i am downloading torrents up to a "maximum" of 200 KB/s.

Now I'm trying to figure out to enable file sharing between my two laptops (one connected to the Prolink H9200 LAN port and the other through the USB port using the provided USB connection wire). I don't know but it seems the static IP address (mentioned on your blog) i used caused the miscommunication of my two laptops, I previously tried ad hoc network before but i also was not able to share files only internet connection was shared. If you have any idea on what i should do... i would really appreciate it.

How about opening a incomming port for a web server any idea? it seems they have same steps but hmmm somethings missing or wrong with the configuration

Do you know how to change the settings of the ZTE MF600 issued by globe, i have access to the modem but don't know how to find the right settings to change

Thanks a lot man! ur the best, i tried it like 20 times, turns out i only needed a default ip address. The picture from portforward.com is wrong by the way. the rule ID should be 2 or any other unused ID rather than 1. Just like 2 clear that up.

I happened to open a videoke site and run it, after awhile my laptop's speaker is not functioning already. Did check the games, controller, sounds, etc. and nothings change. What do you think happened? Can you help me fix my speaker?
