Forward ports easily with Simple Port Forwarding

Many people struggle with forwarding ports even though there are hundreds of guides and tutorials on the Internet. If you are using a router and don’t know how to forward ports, some programs that require port forwarding will fail to function properly. Common examples of such programs are P2P software like uTorrent or Limewire.

Simple Port Forwarding is a software that makes the job easy for you by automatically logging into your router and making the changes necessary to forward the ports you chose. The program supports over 1100 different routers at the time of this writing.

When you run the program it displays a checklist that lays down the steps you will need to perform to forward ports. The checklist itself as clickable buttons that opens the necessary dialog boxes for you to enter information, such as router login, etc.

The main interface of the program is small and clean. Giving options of seeing what is going to be forwarded to the router and how many entries and ports it will use in the process. You have the ability to save your list and send it to another user of the program. So instead of spending a lot of time trying to explain port forwarding to say, a family member, simply have them use the program with your saved list and update their router.

The program has a large database of known ports for over 670+ games and programs, so finding the port you need is made easier.

The program will also remember custom applications you put in, so you don't have to reenter them.

Apart from forwarding ports, Simple Port Forwarding comes loaded with many extra tools like tool to set your IP to static or back to DHCP, or adding exception to Windows firewall. Once you have your ports forwarded you can then test to see if they can be accessed right from with in the program using the built in port tester.
