Forward Ports for RTP

When you use RTP you might need to forward some ports in your router. By forwarding ports you allow connection requests coming from the internet to be directed to RTP.

Routers are not designed to allow incoming network requests. Forwarding ports can work around this limitation.

Before Forwarding a Port

Make sure that you know these things before forwarding a port:

Locate Your Router's IP Address

The easiest way to locate your router's IP address is to run our free Router Detector utility. It is part of our Network Utilities suite of tools and is free for you to use it.

If you do not want to run the software, you can follow our Find Your Router IP Address guide.

Forwarding a Port for RTP

You can use our Network Utilities software to automatically forward ports for you. Our Network Utilities software allows you to add port forwards and also remove them when you no longer need them to maximize your network security.

You can also choose to set up port forwards manually. The normal process for forwarding a port is:

Some routers need to be rebooted in order for the changes to be saved.

You can choose your router from our list to see exactly how to forward ports for RTP:
