"Quick and Easy"

September 13, 2014  |  By DRAWNBOX

 |  Version: SPI Port Forward 1

Pros

This worked very well for me. All I wanted to do was port forward for a minecraft server and it worked.

Cons

1). It took me about 5 minutes to figure out what to do.

Summary

This program works if you put your external ip in the remote host and the port you want to connected to in the other to.

"Simple and works."

March 03, 2011  |  By bdombro

 |  Version: SPI Port Forward 1

Pros

Windows 7 Compatible
Very Simple interface
Supports multiple forwarding
Does not require installation!

Cons

None.

Some people might complain that auto-start takes a few manual steps to setup, however I prefer it the way it is b/c it requires no installation and doesn't mess with your registry!

Summary

This simplifies my network setup because I just set my router to forward a group of ports to my server, then use this software to forward some of those ports to other computers on my network.

This is how I made it autostart for all users: put portforward.exe in its own folder in program files, the add a shortcut to it in the startup folder in your start menu. Start it and give it permission to pass through your firewall. Now whenever you log in, it should auto-run as admin without requiring credentials.

"Excellent free program. The best is it FREE"

July 15, 2010  |  By myittech

 |  Version: SPI Port Forward 1

Pros

It can handle all the port fowarding that you needed.

Cons

There is no cons at all.

Summary

Don't waste money for other program since this one is free. Get it while it still available. I have seached the internet and this is the best that I have found so far.

Updated on Jul 15, 2010

Simple program and it works great with out the router. I could config the port fowarding directly from my PC. It works great if you don't have the router and using USB wireless modem.

"I can detect no sign of it working"

February 03, 2010  |  By Itossa

 |  Version: SPI Port Forward 1

Pros

As it does n ot appear to be working I can find nothing to say.

Cons

It downloaded without any form of instruction so apparently it should automatically forward a port that needs forwarding but in fact nothing happened.

Summary

Like a dozen or so port forwarding systems I have tried over the years, It simply does not forward the two or three programmes that give me a problem. Better luck n ext time chaps. This will be going to the same place as all those so called modem boosters and download accelerators

"Functionality's great"

December 07, 2007  |  By sbciagent

 |  Version: SPI Port Forward 1

Pros

Well, I've been trying to find FREE port forwarder for Windows, but didn't succeed. I was trying to find one for more than 3 months, but everyone of those were trial versions. SPI Port Forward's graphical interface may not look so good, but the functionality is superb.
