    Need help for port forwarding


    by chinesehkl ·

    Hello guys,
    Please anyone could help me? I want to send packets from HostA to HostB at port 1234, but my ISP is blocking all non-standard ports. I have below idea but I don’t know if it really can work or not.
    1. At RouterA, configure outbound port forwarding to replace destination port to a standard port, for example TCP 110 and send over the packet.
    2. At RouterB, configure inbound port forwarding to replace destination port from TCP 110 to TCP 1234.

    HostA —–< RouterA >———-( ISP )———-< RouterB >—–HostB

    Do you think this setup can work?
    If yes, anyone can recommend which router I should use? (reasonable price and reliable)
    If no, any other solution to send over the packet bypassing my ISP firewall? VPN?
    Appreciate for your input.

      Try reposting this in the ‘Q&A’ forum. The ‘Discussion’ forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution. The ‘Water Cooler’ is for non-technical discussions. You can submit a question to ‘Q&A’ here:;content

      There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you’ll find more of those members in ‘Q&A’ than in ‘Discussions’ or ‘Water Cooler’.

      Be sure to use the voting buttons to provide your feedback. Voting a ‘+’ does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours. If they have a ready source of reference available, perhaps won’t need to repeat questions previously asked and answered. If a post did contain the solution to your problem, you can also close the question by marking the helpful post as “The Answer”. .
