Increased Port Forwarding Capacity
When you run out of Port Forwarding space on your router, you can use the port triggering section to accomplish the same task. Simply run our PortTrigger application on the computer that you want to have ports forwarded to, and like magic your application starts working. No more logging in to your router every time you switch applications just because your router doesn't have enough port forwarding capacity.
A forwarded port is a security hole. When you forward ports on your router, they are open all the time. However, when you trigger ports on your router, they are only open as long as the PortTrigger application is telling them to stay open. When you are done using your program, the ports close and your security is increased.
No need to set up a Static IP
Forwarding ports with PortTrigger is easy to setup, because you do not need to give every computer on your network a static IP address. You can continue using your router the way it is, without a major change to your network. When you run PortTrigger on your computer, your router knows immediately which computer you want to forward ports to.
Use the same application on different computers
Using conventional port forwarding, you must log in to your router every time you want to run an application on a different computer. With PortTrigger, you can set up your router just once, and every time you want to switch computers your router will respond automatically. With PortTrigger multiple computers on your network can use the same application with ease.
