What is Port Forwarding?

Also referred to as port mapping and port tunneling, port forwarding is a technique used for redirecting computer signals
from LAN computers to remote computers, and so on. It involves the interception of data traffic going to a specific IP address and
re-routing it to another IP address entirely.

With port forwarding, you can connect to any internet-connected service or device from any location in the world. You can
use it to send requests to any server on the internet, that too without letting anyone know about the original IP address or location. This
ensures you remain safe and secure online through and through.

If you want to check if your port is open on a Windows computer, you will have to:• Press the Windows key and search for Windows features in the search bar. Now, choose to Turn Windows features on or off.• Now check the Telnet Client checkbox and click OK• Press Windows + R key simultaneously and type cmd.exe, then click OK.• Now type "telnet + hostname or IP address + port number" to run the telnet command on the Command Prompt to check the status of the TCP port.• If a port is open, you will only see a cursor, while if the port is closed, you will see a message saying Connect Failed.

Network administrators use port triggering to map a port or ports to a single local machine. Port triggering is considered dynamic since ports are opened when needed and closed when not needed.Port Triggering configures the router so that computers can connect to public services outside the network or on the Internet, such as email servers, File Transfer Protocol (FTP) servers, gaming servers web servers, and other Internet server applications.

UPnP allows devices on local network to connect and discover using conventional networking protocols (such as TCP/IP, HTTP, and DHCP). Printers, game consoles, WiFi devices, IP cameras, routers, mobile devices, and Smart TVs are examples of UPnP devices.

To port forward any connection, you must know the username and password to access the router's config. Without this, you'll never make it past the first step.• Find your ipv4 IP, and type it into your browser. Go to the command prompt on Windows, type "ipconfig," and copy the string of numbers and dots following "ipv4 address."• It'll ask for a username and password. The default password is "password," default username is "Admin." Nowadays, they come with a randomly generated password that you can change later, and a public network will likely already have its security on lockdown.• So now you're in. Locate the forwarding settings, and find your router under the WAN tab.• Now you can edit those settings, fix them up to match the ports and everything, and you should be good to go!Note: We recommend using a VPN before hosting from Public WiFi as it is not secure

Port forwarding allows users outside of your network to have additional access to your machine. Giving access to or accessing unsafe ports can be dangerous since threat actors and anyone with malicious intent can quickly get complete control of your device.
