Set Up a Port Forward for Portmap
When you use Portmap you might need to forward some ports in your router. A port forward allows incoming connection requests from the internet to go straight to Portmap.
Routers do not generally allow incoming connection requests from the internet. A port forward can overcome this limitation.
Before Forwarding a Port Checkoff This To Do List
Before you can forward a port you need to know the following things:
- Your router's IP address.
- The IP address of your computer.
- A list of TCP and UDP ports that need to be forwarded.

Forwarding a Port for Portmap
You can use our Network Utilities software to automatically forward ports for you. Network Utilities lets you manage port forwards by putting them in when you need them and also removing the ones that you no longer need which maximized network security.
Alternatively you can do it by hand. The process for forwarding a port is:
- Start by logging in to your router.
- Locate the section in your router that deals with port forwarding.
- Put the IP address of your computer in the proper box in your router.
- Put the TCP and UDP ports for Portmap in the corresponding boxes in your router.
Some routers need to be rebooted in order for the changes to be saved.
