Port Forward IOT
PUREVPNHow do I port forward IoT devices?

If you want to unblock the ports for IOT, you will need to use a VPN. A VPN can mask your IP address and make it appear as if you are from a different country. This will allow you to access websites that may be blocked in your country.

Internet of Things

The term IoT, or Internet of Things, refers to the collective network of connected devices and the technology that facilitates communication between devices and the cloud, as well as between the devices themselves.

In short, the Internet of Things refers to the rapidly growing network of connected objects that are able to collect and exchange data in real-time using embedded sensors. Thermostats, cars, lights, refrigerators, and more appliances can all be connected to the IoT.

Here I will let you know how these Applications will work with Port Forwarding:


Setting up the Wireless Sensor Tags system isn’t hard, but it can be a little fussy since you must first make sure the Ethernet Tag Manager can communicate through your router. I had some problems until I configured port mapping/forwarding for port 6667 in AirPort Utility.

Due to some ISP restrictions port, 6667 are blocked and PureVPN has some tools which will help you to unblock the ports. 

Things you would Need to Unblock the Ports:

To unblock the ports, you would need a few things:

  • PureVPN subscription
  • Port Forwarding ADD-ON

How to Unblock the Ports 6667 through PureVPN:

  •  Login Member Area
  •  Click On Subscription Tab
  •  Configure Port Forwarding 
  •  Enable the Specific Port 6667
  •  Click On Apply Settings.

The Port Forwarding process is relatively simple. However, it’s important to remember that not all routers are created equal. Some routers have more features than others and some may be easier to use than others. That being said, the steps to unblocking ports for IOT are generally the same regardless of which router you’re using.
