I was connected to Adam today and he was so patient with me and so helpful. I am a bit of a dinosaur where IT is concerned and Adam had the patience of a saint. I would be lost without your help. Thank you.

Optus premium support has been the best thIng I have invested in to support my basic technology skills. They have got me through so many challenging (to ME) computer issues with ease. Adam was able to fix my email settings so i could send emails out from my optus email whereever I was . Something that no other technician has been able to fix for years and numerous tries. Thankyou Highly recommend thgis service to anyone like me who is not great with technology. The only negative feedback is that you need to be able to book a technician and often this cannot be done on the same day which can be frustrating.

FAQs

There are tons of online tools available to verify whether a port is opened or closed on a remote machine or device. This utility is beneficial to verify whether port forwarding is correctly set or not.

In a typical network, the router has the general public IP address and computers/servers obtain a personal IP address from the router that’s not accessible from outside the network. When you forward a selected port on your router, you’re telling your router where to direct traffic for that port. Online platforms will confirm the success of that process.

If you have any queries, please contact us.

Port forwarding might be a difficult situation. Depending on which router the person has, it can be easy to set up, but not easy to get working. The troubleshooting tips are grouped into three categories:

  • Check the router configuration
  • Check the connection between the server and router
  • Check the Internet Connection

Keep in mind that sometimes the router itself may be corrupted, and even Windows networking can be as well. These things can happen from time to time, and it is always a possible scenario. Also, bugs can affect routers and that’s why they create updates to the firmware.

For more information, please contact us.

Port forwarding is often an excellent tool within the right hands because it can unblock your private home network. Yes, port forwarding is safe but only if you have a VPN connection. This allows users to maintain their network security and online privacy.

The second thing is to use a proper security firewall. As long as you’ve got Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10 installed, then you’ve got a solid firewall in situ and may safely forward a port to any computer. Your router acts as a firewall and only permits access to a few services.

In case you need further consultation, please contact us.

Gaming consoles are designed entirely to be connected to the web. There are virtually zero security exploits discovered in them, and once they’re identified they’re dealt with quickly by system updates.

You should not be worried about forwarding a port to a security camera, DVR, or another consumer device. Like gaming consoles, these devices are designed to be connected online. Yes, it’s safe to forward a port to a gaming console.

In case you need more clarification, please contact us.

It is usually frustrating when a piece of software has problems connecting online, and you’re asked to check your networking configuration, or to ‘open ports’. Also, in most cases, many routers don’t have a secure firewall watching your traffic.

‘Open ports’ have to be identified as some are open by default on your router, others are closed and may only be used if you manually forward them. One of the most common ports is 21, 110 and 8080. These ports are frequently active and open on most routers.
