OK, first post here. Hello.
I've searched the forums and checked the FAQ's for an answer, no joy.
I simply need to open port 9000 on my HH4 to allow out of home access to my new Buffalo NAS.
The port fowarding FAQ - here - does not work:
If you follow the instructions to setup a customer application you can enter the port you need, however once saved, your custome app does not then appear in the Application drop down list so it is impossible to associate it with a device (the NAS in my case)
Has anyone manged to get port forwarding on a custom app working for a HH4?
As an aside FTP does not seem to appear as an optional protocol to open - is this not supported?
Solved! Go to Solution.

This guide may help, as it refers to the earlier hubs. Not sure whether the screens are the same.
You should be able to add FTP as a custom application.

I'm having the same problems with this. I have a LinkStation Live NAS that is connected to my Homehub 4 and I access UTorrent as the torrent software through it. I've just gone live with BT Infinity 2 (my speeds are 53meg down, 16meg up) and am trying to open up port 55343 for UTorrent.
I've logged into the homehub 4 and gone to the advanced settings to create a new application called Utorrent that links to my Linkstation device and set Port Forwarding on the hub 4 to port 55343.
Cannot for the life of me work out why I am only getting download speeds on average of 1.5 kb/s and 4.5 kb/s up? Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

Not 'solved' surely, when the solution admits that " I can not see a way to open a port and associate it with a device on the new HH4", which was the original query?
I have the same problem - Port Forwarding is under 'settings' but only allows selection from a list. New devices have to be added under 'advanced' but the option doesn't exist there, in contrast to the HH3, where configuration and Port Forwarding are both menu options. The A-Z help, which presumably was cut and pasted from the HH3, repeats the original instructions, and you are caught in a loop where you are pointed to a non-existent option.
I just want to add a device in the same way as I have done with the HH3! Please...

Use the IP address not the device name.
This page should help.
There are some CCTV example on this page.

I've just discovered that the reason you can't select the custom app you've chosen is because of a scrolling issue with BT's software. If you choose the last application you can see from the drop down list and then make the list drop down again, you'll see a scroll bar appear. Then just grab that and scroll down to your custom app!
A bit late, but I hope that helps.
