Port Forwarding

If using Open Dental's Listener Service, you will need to forward the port on your router you can securely connect to Open Dental's servers. We recommend working with your IT professional or referring to the documentation provided by your router manufacturer.

Support sites for common routers: Below are links to some of the most common router brands.

These router settings need to change:

  • For Port / Port Range, enter the Listener Port. If using a port range, the start and end port should be the same.
  • Protocol TCP
  • Forward the port to the local IPv4 address of the computer running the Listener Service.
