Configuring Port Range Triggering using the Linksys app

The Port Range Triggering feature allows you to set up the router so that computers can access public services outside the network or on the internet, such as web servers, File Transfer Protocol (FTP) servers, email servers, game servers or other internet applications.  Configuring the Port Range Triggering feature of your router is made easy using the Linksys app.

  • Consult your device's documentation or online support site to find out what ports you need to trigger for your device since they differ for every application.
