New tool to simplify Port forwarding on 655
« on: February 02, 2009, 02:02:03 PM »

This easy to use program helps you to set port forwarding rules to your router. It has a nice database of poular apps and games so you don't have to second guess for ports or put in some effort yourself to find 'm.  :)

Greatest part: It's free.

Download it from the author's site to ensure a virus-free installer.

THIS SOFTWARE IS NOT MADE BY OR ENDORSED BY D-LINK OR EMPLOYEES. I PUT IT HERE AS A PRIVATE INITIATIVE

Why would anyone need to use this with the simple port forwarding in DIR-655? On the other hand this site has some interesting info about what's the GUI Web Admin look like before you buy more info than other sites I've come across.

..because there isn't a really easy to find list of all of the ports that applications use.

Yep, it seems to do so. Don't know if it does so by inserting the required ports into Windows Firewall, thus using the PnP capability or into the router itself.

From the site:

Does Simple Port Forwarding remove or overwrite current ports that have been forwarded in the router?

(A.) No. The program only adds new ports to the router. It doesn't overwrite, change or delete any that are currently in the router. But the program does make it a little easier for the user to remove or change port forwarding in the router by clicking the 'View/Remove Current Ports' button in the program. This will automatically log into the router and go directly to the port forwarding page, where the user can make the changes he or she needs, making things a little easier.

it would have to be UPnP, this would be useful for people that are trying to test  UPnP on their network, thats about it. Any PC that has this running would already have to have UPnP running on the PC and the router.
However I could think of a few times a tool like that would come in handy. Better then making UPnP port forwards from Windows itself using the Network Places.
