Add-In: WHS Port Forward
Alex Kuretz, of the community website MediaSmartServer.net, has released a new Add-In for Windows Home Server. We spoke about this new release in podcast 51 and here is your first look at WHS Port Forward.
It allows the user to utilize the UPnP feature of Windows Home Server to open forwarded ports from your router to your Home Server. This is useful if you have installed a 3rd party application that requires incoming access from the internet. This Add-In removes the need to assign a static IP address to your server or manually forward ports on your router. Simply configure the port you would like forwarded, and let Windows Home Server handle it for you.
