FAQ’s

What IP do I use for port forwarding?

To use port forwarding, you must first set a static internal IP address (ipv4) for your device. By default your device ipv4 address is automatically dynamic instead of static, meaning it constantly changes and port forwarding won’t be able to identify your device within your home network.

How is port forwarding working?

For connecting to the router, the destination sends a request with the router’s IP address and a specified port. The router then checks its NAT table for an open connection that matches this IP address/port combination. The request is passed along to the correct device on the internal network if there is such a connection.

Can I port forward with VPN?

VPN port forwarding enhances your internet speeds by rerouting data around your NAT firewall. Not only does this make downloads quicker, but it can also enable remote access to your computer.
