FAQ’s

Does port forwarding affect other devices?

Port forwarding will not interfere with the network connection or communication of any other devices on the same internet connection. Port forwarding only affects the host device and allows you to create a direct line of communication with external servers.

Is port forwarding legal?

If you want to allow others to connect to your WiFi network, first you need to understand port forwarding. Although it may sound complex, configuring port forwarding is a breeze and perfectly legal. Plus, it won’t mess with your router settings in any way.

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.
