What is a Port Forward?
A port forward is a form of Network Address Translation (NAT). Certain applications use special port numbers when traversing the internet. With a port forward you can filter out all traffic on that port and send it to a particular client on your internal network.
Using a port forward for a Web Server on your local network is a common example for a port forward use case.
