How to open ports behind CGNAT

What if your ISP performs CGNAT? Most ISPs perform CGNAT (Carrier-grade Network Address Translation) to conserve bandwidth and assign a single IP address to multiple users connected to the same internet network. However, CGNAT makes it difficult for you to open ports on the router. 

To get around the CGNAT issue, you can use the Port Forwarding add-on to bypass this problem and port forward routers without hassle. 
Here’s more information on how to use PureVPN’s Port Forwarding add-on and bypass CGNAT in a few clicks.

PureVPN’s Port Forwarding Add-on

A secure way to open all ports

To most people, port forwarding is quite a demanding task. For starters, every router has a different console, which often makes it difficult to navigate to specific settings.

Secondly, you won’t always be able to open Praetorians ports on your router if your ISP restricts the ports. Yes, you heard that right! ISPs are notorious for blocking ports due to security reasons. If ISP isn’t the reason behind a blocked port, then perhaps it could be your operating system’s firewall.

Well, you can eliminate all these problems and enjoy smooth online gaming on all your desired systems with PureVPN’s Port Forwarding add-on. Through the Port Forwarding add-on, you can allow all ports, disallow all ports, and allow specific ports.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I use port forwarding for gaming? 

Port forwarding improves your gaming console’s or PC’s connection speed, lobby wait times, and overall gameplay by making it more accessible to other gaming consoles or PCs on the Internet.

How do I know which port to forward?

Firstly, you need to identify what port the service uses that you want access to. However, in most cases, home routers come with a list of common games and applications. All you have to do is select it from the list and the corresponding ports will be automatically selected.
