Forwarding Ports for LFTP
You might need to forward some ports in your router when you use LFTP. By forwarding ports you allow connection requests coming from the internet to be directed to LFTP.
Routers do not generally allow incoming connection requests from the internet. By forwarding ports you can work around this limitation.
Before Forwarding a Port
Before you can forward a port you need to know the following things:
- Your router's internal IP address.
- The internal IP address of your download client.
- The TCP and UDP ports that need to be forwarded.
