From Fat Shark:
Small, simple program to forward the connections to other hosts/ports. Useful if you have a Web server/FTP server or similar behind a router, which you have no idea on how to configure it manually. One file, just run and enjoy. This version is the first release on CNET Download.com.
What's new in this version:
This version is the first release on CNET Download.com.
Even though I declined options for free apps during the install, it started running a process called sp.exe. I ran Malwarebytes which said it was a KEY LOGGER. I know it kept changing my home page and default search engine.
Windows 7 Compatible
Very Simple interface
Supports multiple forwarding
Does not require installation!
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!
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.
There isn't any installation b/c it's a self-contained exe (windows executable).
Also, your review is worthless since you don't give any details of what your setup is, whether your running as admin, or how you went about trying to "install" a program that doesn't need any installation!
As it does n ot appear to be working I can find nothing to say.
It downloaded without any form of instruction so apparently it should automatically forward a port that needs forwarding but in fact nothing happened.
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
It doesn't come with instructions b/c it's supposed to be self-explanatory, and it's FREE.
I suspect the reason none of these programs have worked for you is b/c the port your trying to re-route is already locked/in use. Windows won't allow you to listen on ports which are already claimed. Also, check you firewall and make sure that it is allowing your port you want forwarded through.
One last thing, this software DOES NOT enable port forwarding on your router. That has to be done ON the router.
