I have an SMC router and I think I've found what you're describing in its settings, but I can't seem to figure it out.
Under the NAT option, there's the following three menus: address mapping, virtual server, and special applications.
The first menu has nothing about ports in it. The second asks for: "LAN IP address (168.2.1.x), Protocol Type (UDP/TCP), LAN Port, Public Port, Enable".
I'm guessing this should be it. What should I put in for the public port? It looks like the Poopli test send wants 55555. What should I put in for protocol type and lan port?
Ps I've tried using 100 for LAN Port (total guess), 55555 for public port, and TCP&UDP for protocol. I still get:
ERROR: 111 - Connection refused
Could not connect to Replay using the IP and port listed. Check your network configuration.

Actually, that is the way it is supposed to be. Your router assigns IP addresses that start with 192.168.x.x to all of YOUR computers and ReplayTVs. These are for the use of your home network only; my home network may (and probably does) duplicate the numbers you use without a problem, since they're only an internal reference, like an apartment number. But your router actually has an "external" IP address (think street address of your "apartment building") that is in a range owned by your ISP, and that's what the IVS Test returns. If that's what you mean by different, then that is OK. You need to assign a port to your ReplayTV (I would use 40801, but just make sure it's over 1234 and less than 65535), then you have to tell your router to forward that port to the 192.168.x.x that shows up in your ReplayTV's settings. So externally, your ReplayTV would be addressed as "external IP: port#", the message is sent to your router because of the "external IP" part, and your router says "OK, this port number gets forwarded to this internal IP".
If your router's manual isn't clear about how to set up port forwarding, I'm sure someone here has a similar or identical router and could talk you through it. Sometimes it's called a NAT Table, for Network Address Translation, which is how the port # gets translated into your internal IP.
