From PUBG to Dota 2, with our robust Port Forwarding Add-On, you can conveniently open ports that are unavailable on your home, work, or school network and play any game from anywhere in the world.
Internet-connected devices can have up to 65,535 ports that can be open or accessed at any given time. Thing is, you open all of them, and you’ll be hacked up the wazoo, so by default, ports are closed. Port forwarding, or forwarding ports on a router, enables you to directly connect to a device or service that requires open ports, which is especially important because routers and home/work/school networks likely have them completely blocked. And that means, if you’re playing games, you won’t get the full experience. In the online gaming world, you will need to configure port forwarding on your router.
Port shouldn’t be opened freely, because it will invite the wrong kind of traffic. That’s why port forwarding exists: it helps you direct just the right traffic to just the right destination without the extra unnecessary frills. By forwarding ports across certain devices, you can use multiple computers on a single network and allow them to get the full untethered Internet experience. For example, your Xbox One may have some ports forwarded so you can play a specific game. On the other hand, your work computer may be set up as an FTP server, so you’ll want to forward ports for that purpose.
