Reliable router that allows alot of port forwarding (20 +)

By pauld ·
I am looking for a router that has more than 20 port forwarding options. Most small office type routers will only allow anywhere from 10 to 20 port forwards. Does anyone know of a small office router that will allow more than that.

Are you looking for a way to share internet access, such as a DNS/Web Proxy?

I'm not exactly sure by what you mean when you say "port forwarding"

Are you talking about network address translation or port address translation?

Trust me that I know that I need this. I will say though that I could probably get by with 20 (where most basic routers have 10) but have only seen the Actiontec routers with this functionality and I don't want an Actiontec.

you shouldn't need to forward that many ports to a particular host on the LAN.

there are only a certain amount of basic functions like http, https, ftp, DNS, DHCP, L2TP, IPSec, SMTP, POP3, X500, and what not [about 40]. When you get above the basic application protocols and want virtually all application protocols available, most would figure use a DMZ to expose them all.

I need more ports 2, does anyone know of a router that has more than 10

I like how the other guy answers with "you shouldn't need to forward more than 10 ports" c'mon dude, just answer the question. I need more than 10 too. Why? you ask. Because I have webcams that each require 3 ports opened and forwarded to the individual cameras. I have 5 cameras so that means i need to forward 15 ports

if you had framed your question by indicating you had web cams and they go to different computers on the LAN someone might have provided some suggestings like the SonicWall TZ170 or the Symantec 360... something along those lines.
