Port Forwarding and Port Triggering Configuration
By default, the router blocks inbound traffic from the Internet to your computers except replies
to your outbound traffic. You might need to create exceptions to this rule for these purposes:
•To allow remote computers on the Internet to access a server on your local network
•To allow certain applications and games to work correctly when your router does not
recognize their replies
Your router provides two features for creating these exceptions: port forwarding and port
triggering. The next sections provide background information to help you understand how
port forwarding and port triggering work, and the differences between the two.
Remote Computer Access Basics
When a computer on your network needs to access a computer on the Internet, your
computer sends your router a message containing the source and destination address and
process information. Before forwarding your message to the remote computer, your router
must modify the source information and create and track the communication session so that
replies can be routed back to your computer.
Here is an example of normal outbound traffic and the resulting inbound responses:
1. You open a browser, and your operating system assigns port number 5678 to this
2. You type http://www.example.com into the URL field, and your computer creates a web page
request message and sends it to your router. The message contains the following address
and port information:
•Source address. Your computer’s IP address.
•Source port number. 5678, which is the browser session.
