What is CGNAT?
Most internet service providers use the same IP address for multiple users, CGNAT, or Carrier-grade Network Address Translation. Additionally, ISPs automatically reject port forwarding requests from users to prevent exhausting other users on the same network who rely on the same IP address. However, PureVPN add-ons can help you with port forwarding and bypassing firewalls.
How to enable ports behind CGNAT with PureVPN
With a few clicks of a button, you can disable the CGNAT firewall and open ports on multiple routers, whether you’re using MikroTik, Starlink, or other routers.

Frequently asked questions
Does Port Forwarding work on CGNAT-enabled routers?
You may face trouble opening ports on a router that performs CGNAT. But with the Port Forwarding add-on, you can change your IP address and automatically open ports behind routers performing CGNAT.
How do I check if my ISP uses Carrier-grade NAT (CGNAT)?
There are a few ways to check if your ISP uses Carrier-grade NAT (CGNAT). One way is to contact your ISP directly and ask them if they use CGNAT. Another way is to use an online tool like “What Is My IP.” This tool will show you your public IP address, which will differ from your private IP address if your ISP uses CGNAT. Finally, you can check your router’s status page to see if it shows a public or private IP address. If it shows a public IP address, your ISP is using CGNAT.
