Port forwarding to a single session

Recommended Posts

Hi

I have just started with AirVPN and quite happy. I have opened a port forwarding and it is working fine, but I only need that particular port in one session, not in all my sessions. I know it is not a big deal, but it could be a security risk. So my question is how do I assign a port forwarding to a single session instead to all of them. Is this possible?

Thanks

Hello!

You can't but it's irrelevant. Make sure you have nothing listening to that port in any "other" system and it's not a security risk (something that does not exist is not a security risk by itself).

Kind regards

I understand that if the other device has the port closed in theory it should be protected, but it does open an avenue of attack in case the other device has a bug or is badly configured.

I also understand that this is just a small detail and not super important towards security, but it would be good if we could have the option to asign a port to a session, even if the default remains for the open ports to be for all sessions as it is now. I do not see how it would hurt to add the option to asign a port to a session for the ones who are interested.

Hello!

If a port does not exist there's physically no way to have some host process reached via that port (it seems you don't know what a port is, check it out). It's not a matter of bugs, it's a physical limitation in the code as the host lacks the information to process and assign the packet to any process.

That's possible. Can you (or somebody else) make an example showing that the option would be useful and not an over-complication? We can't think of any, but If the reason is good, we can seriously think about adding the option(s).

Kind regards
