How does AirVPN port forwarding work?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, newbie here.
A total noob question: how does remote port forwarding in AirVPN works? I actually DID read their faq about port forward but still lost somewhere.
Let say i wanna play NAT Restricted games on Ubisoft (which requires me to open certain ports like UDP 3074, TCP 14000, etc) but unfortunately my ISP doesnt allow it, hence the reason i use AirVPN.

 

What i understand is: if i port forward those ports in VPN, the same ports should be disabled in my local router. Am i right?

And also what about other settings in my router such as UPnP, should i disable it too?

I really hope that someone can enlighten me as i'm kinda new to this kinda stuff.

Thank you in advance

You don't need to touch your router in most cases and yes you need to be careful about forwarding ports on your router that you use elsewhere too.
