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.
