This might be the page you're looking for on TP Link VR 1600V. Unfortunately I haven't tried it yet, since I don't have the modem. Smiley Indifferent

What's port forwarding and why would it be used?

Level 2

Port forwarding allows one to host services on their own connection. For instance, when people want to host a game. They will need to set up port forwarding so that when other people connect to the host's IP address (and a specific port), the router will then redirect the traffic (of the same sort) to a specific IP address within the network.
