How It Works
Forwarding a port should be easy!
Our software is the easiest way to get an open port. Here’s how it works.
- First you run the Router Detector to locate your router on your network and ensure that you only have 1 router.
- After that you use the Static IP Setter to ensure that your PC has a static IP address. This is helpful in diagnosing open port issues because some routers refuse to forward a port to a dynamic IP address.
- Then you run PFConfig to setup a port forward in your router. PFConfig logs in to your router and configures it automatically.
- Finally you use the Port Checker to see if your port is open. You specify the port that you want to test and our server tries to connect. When our server connects then we know that the port has been forwarded and is now open.
- Made modifications to how the router’s IP address and the computer’s default IP address are detected. Some anti-malware software were preventing both Network Utilities and PfConfig from working correctly.
- Made some modifications to how regular expressions work on the back end to make supporting more old router’s easier.
- Created some routines to help detect when anti-malware software prevented Network Utilities from starting the other applications.
