Ok.

#1 When you are playing these games, what platform are you playing on?

a) Standard Normal Computer (IBM compatible OR Mac/Apple) ?

b) Game Console (Xbox, PlayStation)

#2 If playing on a game console, do you have only one game console OR do you have at least two game consoles?

Note for two game consoles: That includes game consoles owned by others behind this same NAT router (even a friend who brings his/her own, uses theirs own and then brings theirs back home)

In the mean time as I wait your reply, I will give more two cents.

* Issue one *

There is always a trade off.

You could use enable UPnP in the NAT router and not forward manually, however that has problems/issues.

a) If UPnP is enabled in the router

b) If an user has UPnP turned on, on their computer (Windows) / system (Xbox)

c) If an user has UPnP allowed by their software firewall on their computer.

d) and if an user has an UPnP aware app (for example uTorrent) on their computer.

Then the user could open port(s) in the router without knowing the router's control log-in!

If you find a server that you want to forward for is not UPnP aware, then I point you to

http://www.howtogeek.com/122227/how-to-quickly-forward-ports-on-your-router-from-a-desktop-application/

With info about: UPnP Port Mapper.

* Issue two *

While I know that you are trying to forward for games, I will assume something for the purpose of explaining.

Let us assume that you were forwarding for the web server Apache too.

As noted at both http://www.pcwintech.com/application-ports and https://portforward.com/ports.htm they tell you that you need to forward both TCP 80 and TCP 443.

While they tell you that, that info that they told (or are telling) you is not quite true.

a) By default it only listens on port 80.

b) Not only can an user change the port(s) that it uses, SSL is disabled by default.

A simple Google (or other online search engine) search for Apache enable ssl shows this. As well as a search for change Apache default ports

So slight tiny correction for that app/program:

Apache = User Specified Ports. Default TCP port 80 and 443 disabled by default.

While I understand that Apache is cross platform (not limited to Windows only) and that you can forward to another computer, kind of odd/strange if forwarding to one self if you use either one of those two port forwarding programs, it/they do not check what port(s) that Apache is setup to use.

While I know I could re-edit my post, this just makes it easier to read.

Last update by me, that is unless you reply...

I also sent a PM/IM to you with this info..

I point to my quote my self at my own threads at DSLR (dslreports.com). All of the replies to these threads, I am sure that you will find interesting.

#1 https://www.dslreports.com/forum/r24685492-DMZ-and-portforwarding-are-equally-dangerous

Quote
Ok, I change my mind around more.

It does not matter how a machine gets compromised, period...

That could by allowing users from the net (typically port forwarding - not usually using the DMZ), Wireless Access point is not using wireless security protection (or has been hacked), and for example spyware/malware get's downloaded onto a PC.

..All other computers are (assuming you are not cascaded NAT) at risk.

Is that what he is saying?

#2 https://www.dslreports.com/forum/r31297960-Using-DMZ-dangerous-for-a-game-console

Quote
While I know using the DMZ is dangerous, is it and how is it dangerous for a game console?

Note this does assume that the game console is correctly setup to use a Static IP and in the router is/are DMZing to the game console's Static IP.

Thank you

Considering the info that is at and for example http://www.yourownlinux.com/2013/07/how-to-configure-ubuntu-as-router.html after I were to setup a DYI NAT Router, without setting up two other NAT Routers how would I setup an untrusted LAN?

So that you can answer my question, assume the following:

etho is the NIC that that will be connected to Internet

eth1 is the NIC that will be the trusted LAN

eth2 is the NIC that will be the untrusted LAN.

[EDIT] I even see at https://rbgeek.wordpress.com/2012/05/13/change-the-network-card-name-in-ubuntu-12-04/ I could change the Name of the NICs

Thank you

Numbers don't lie - it's time to build your own router

Guide to building a Linux router from scratch

Over the course of 2015, I noticed a trend. Rather than replacing routers when they literally stopped working, I increasingly needed to act earlier—swapping in new gear because an old router could no longer keep up with increasing Internet speeds available in the area. Famously around the Ars forums, this problem soon evolved into our homebrew router initiative. In January, I showed my math as a DIY-Linux router outpaced popular off-the-shelf options like the Netgear Nighthawk X6 and the Linksys N600 EA-2750. And in August, I shared the steps necessary to build one of your own.

After readers got a look at the performance charts, I got a ton of outraged "why didn't you test my favorite brand?!" comments. If you were one of those skeptics, congrats—today is your day! The Ars homebrew router special has been coaxed out of retirement to test its speeds against an entirely new lineup of gear. And to raise the stakes a bit further, the Ars team has broken out some new and improved methods that test more hardware and a couple of purpose-designed router distros. This time, we're even offering power consumption figures as well.

I found that to be an interesting read at http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2016/09/the-router-rumble-ars-diy-build-faces-better-tests-tougher-competition/

Next up in the series is about different types of wireless NAT routers and wireless vs wired. Which should be interesting in the Networking area.


#5 https://www.dslreports.com/forum/r31322861-DYI-Linux-Distro-4-connection-sharing-vs-normal-NAT-router-entries-q

Quote
I had earlier questions that I asked in Some questions on Exploring DIY Linux Router Distros however, now I have another question.

With NAT routers there is a maximum number of entries that one could forward for.

Do software based NAT router(s) have more entries that one could forward for than a normal hardware based NAT routers?

And if so, Which software based NAT router(s) have the most number of entries one could add?

Does one have to roll one up one self (for example turning a computer that running Ubuntu Server version into acting as a NAT router) to get even more entries?

Thank you
