Set Up a Port Forward for GNUnet
When you use GNUnet you may need to forward ports in your router. Forwarding ports is used to allow incoming connection requests from the internet to GNUnet.
Routers generally do not allow incoming connection requests from the internet. By forwarding ports you can work around this limitation.
Before Forwarding a Port Checkoff This To Do List
Before forwarding a port make sure that you know these things:
- Your router's internal IP address.
- The IP address of your computer.
- Each of the TCP and UDP ports that you need to forward.
