Windows 7: Port forwarding(redirecting), NOT(!) port opening

Port forwarding(redirecting), NOT(!) port opening


I was tired when 50th result in google named "port forwarding" was actually question how to open port.

To be specific, I would like windows 7 to do the same what this program does. Which means forward port...
NOT fowarding port on my router
NOT opening port(allow connections) in windows rules
YES forward port to other destination on X port.

Thanks in advance!

Honestly no one knows?

Maybe it's just impossible?

"To be specific, I would like windows 7 to do the same as this does"

trying contacting QuantunG his email link is at the bottom os the page you linked--it appears that the software he created is for a 32 bit vers of Windows--contact him about a 64 bit vers--or ask about how to use 'this' software on win7 64bit

Thank you for reply tman69.

This software does work for x64 too I just wanted to avoid running another external software and it'd be rather shame if windows didn't support such common function...

You can try using netsh. It works on server operating systems, but I have no idea if it works on 7.

Thanks to mail notifications I'm here

Yeah. You can do that with netsh (as long as it's TCP), if not then you have to use external tool.

For TCP use (assuming you want to redirect all traffic)
netsh interface portproxy add v4tov4 listenport=1935 listenaddress= connectport=1999 connectaddress=DESTINATION_IP
As for an external tool
NetworkActiv AUTAPF - UDP TCP Port Forwarder

I tested it myself and works like a charm
