Port forwarding, also referred as port mapping, is a technique which is often used to redirect computer signals (ports) from LAN computers (Local network) to remote computers (Internet) and vice versa.
To simplify this further, the Port Forwarding feature allows you to connect with or access any internet-connected device or service from any place around the world.
Port forwarding is also often referred to as Port Tunneling. This is a behind-the-scenes process of intercepting the data traffic heading towards a computer’s IP combination and redirecting it to a different IP address. Most often, a VPN or proxy program is used to cause this redirection, but it can also be done via hardware devices such as a router, proxy server, or even a firewall.
It allows you to send requests to any server on the internet without anyone else knowing the original location or IP address of these requests. This guarantees your privacy on the internet.
