Set Up a Port Forward for RealAudio
You might need to forward some ports in your router when you use RealAudio. By forwarding ports you allow connection requests coming from the internet to be directed to RealAudio.
Routers are not designed to allow incoming network requests. A port forward can overcome this limitation.
Before You Forward a Port
Before you can forward a port you need to know the following things:
- The internal IP address of your router.
- Your computer's IP address.
- Each of the TCP and UDP ports that you need to forward.
