Configuring Port Range Forwarding using the Linksys app

The Port Range Forwarding feature allows you to set up public services on your network, such as web servers, FTP servers, email servers or other specialized internet applications.  Configuring the Port Range Forwarding feature of your router is made easy using the Linksys app. 
 
This article will guide you in configuring Port Range Forwarding using the app.  Before you start, make sure to check the following:

 
  • Write down the ports you need to forward.  Refer to your product documentation or contact your device manufacturer for details.
