Know how to port forward without a router
« on: May 10, 2021, 11:52:46 AM »
In technical terms, port forwarding refers to a procedure that allows other external systems/devices to access several computer services by getting on a private Internet network. This process is supported by a precise mapping of the external ports to an IP address and port (both internal). Configuration of port forward on the home router, i.e. internal, is a mandatory task that needs to be done before you set up the port forwarding. However, there are times when you can get the port forward without router. Here, in this read, you’ll get to know and understand how to the same.
No router for port forwarding
Let’s look at every essential detail that relates the port forward without router:
•   Firstly, if you do not want to route traffic to your Internet connection network, your router would not require forwarding ports.
•   Again, if your computer system/device is connected to the internet and already on the network, let’s say, the system is connected to the network via a modem, then, all the traffic along with ports would directly go to your computer/device.
•   Another way is to build up a VPN Tunnel directed to a particular destination on your network and have the traffic come in and interact over there. Also, there are a few VPN providers who will permit you to set up specific as well as significant ports that can be accessed all across the tunnel and/or provide you with a static IP address.

Yes. On a Linux system, you can forward ports using iptables. Have a look at the following articles which explain how to redirect or forward incoming traffic on certain ports using iptables.

I hope this information will be helpful!
