Port Triggering Guide
Note: An added benefit of Port Triggering is you do not need to worry about ip addresses.
When using port triggering with applications that don't make outbound
connections you can use my free
Port Triggering Initiator to make the connections to trigger the ports for you.
Open your favorite web browser and input your routers ip address in the address bar.
Please note that you must have the http:// in order to connect to your router/modem properly.
