Hi I have a router with a built in hardware firewall, my question is, if I open a port and use port forwarding to a pc on my network is that port open to abuse full stop or is it safe as long as a program is using that port from the pc? Any guidance to websites that give more info would be much appreciated. cheers G :)
You should have no problem using NAT if someone or something request to use that open port the router will drop the packet (stateful inspection)if a PC on your LAN didn't start the conversation.Only LAN request will be let back in.
