While It's not a huge task for advanced users to forward ports on their router, this makes it much easier for others and quite honestly, it's faster than using my router interface so I use it too. It worked excellent with my D-Link, no issues.
Why I really like this is due to the fact that my younger son has a hard time with ports and such and he understands this compared to the interface in the router, or he simply likes it better "not sure which" so when I tell him how to forward a port, he can actually use this when gaming.
Excellent easy alternative to the router interface and easily accessible.
This tool really lives up to its name. Select your router from a list and the program does the rest to set up your port forwarding.
The program also alerted me to the fact that my new modem was also a router - something I did not realize. This modem/router was interfering with port forwarding through my main router. It was not on Simple Port Forwarding's built in list, so I used the companion screen capture tool to send the info to Shane, the developer. He was quick to respond and, through a series of e-mails, patiently walked me through the steps necessary to configure my hardware. I am VERY impressed with the level of support Shane gave me!
Very clean interface. User-friendly.
While my router wasn't listed, the publisher makes it extremely easy to send the required information to request that my particular model be added to the database. I received quick response (by a human) via email and my router will probably be added by tomorrow.
