Home Server Setup

Step 1: Connect the Home Server

Plug the power supply into your new Sabai Home Server and connect it to your current router via Ethernet cable. 

Check the USB thumb drive on the back of the VPN Accelerator and verify that it is firmly in place.

Press the power button on the Home Server.

Step 2: Access the main router

Log into your current router by typing in the IP address of the router control panel. Sabai routers can be accessed at 192.168.199.1. The username and password are admin/sabaipass123. Non­ Sabai routers are typically accessed through one of the following IP addresses: 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1. Refer to your documentation for access.

Step 3: Assign a static IP address to the Server

Find the Device List and add the Home Server to the static address list. The Home Server device name will be “homeserver”. The example below is from a stock Netgear Router.

Step 4: Port Forwarding

You will need to forward some ports in your main router. This process will vary depending on the router you are using but in general, forward these ports to the address you assigned to the Home Server in Step 3. 

These ports are the default ports configured in the HomeServer. If you change these ports you will change the forwarding rule as well.

UDP 1194

TCP 443

UDP *port listed on the WireGuard page of your Home Server after configuration

UDP 31422 *only if server is being managed by Sabai Technology

Example forward of port 1194 from stock Netgear router:
