Anyone in here have any info about port forwarding the new TP links that TPG are sending. My mate just got one on FTTN and i need to help him set it up. Some screen shots might come in handy
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.
