Set Up a Port Forward for LDC++
You might need to forward some ports in your router when you use LDC++. By forwarding ports you allow connection requests coming from the internet to be directed to LDC++.
Routers do not generally allow incoming connection requests from the internet. By forwarding a port you can overcome this limitation.
Before Forwarding a Port
Make sure that you know these things before forwarding a port:
- The internal IP address of your router.
- Your download client's IP address.
- A list of TCP and UDP ports that need to be forwarded.
