Port Forwarding / UPnP

I am trying to work out if I need to set up Port Forwarding manually or not.

Router type:  Hub One.


1.  In Plusnet > Advanced Settings, UPnP is enabled.

2.  In the app I am trying to port forward, the setting ‘Use UPnP / NAT-PMP port forwarding from my router’ is also enabled.

3.  In the list of apps in Plusnet > Settings > Port Forwarding, the app I am trying to port forward is NOT listed.


Does port forwarding happen automatically if the settings in 1. & 2., above, are enabled, or does that only apply if the app is on Plusnet’s list?


Or, do I need to manually add the app to Plusnet’s Port Forwarding list before port forwarding will work?


Is there anything else I need to do to make Port Forwarding work?


Thanks in advance

Re: Port Forwarding / UPnP

It should work fine with 1 & 2 enabled with no need to manually add an entry.
