I'm trying to figure out "all the other" things about the routers, I just have never had a need to poke at these things.
In this image there is port forwarding, and range port forwarding, explain to me:
Why would I need to specify that 'all' communication on a certain port would need to go to a specific address, wouldn't the incoming packages know where they were going?
What application (except games) needs to have certain ports forwarded, I thought it was only firewalls that dealt with ports as far as open or close them. Why do I need to forward packages and why and what application needs this (real life example)
This might seem like a self explanatory feature at first glance, but i would like to know a little more about it (and not Google it). A few pointers would be highly appreciated.
I'm trying to understand the concept, not the specific feature in this specific router.
