Hm... could be a signature ;-) Duane, how should a router work without
port forwarding?
And what are you asking here? All ports on the router are closed by
default to unsolicited inbound traffic. One starts opening inbound ports
by using *port forwarding* that allows unsolicited traffic to come down
the port or ports to Internet sever applications running on a machine,
with the O/S, the Internet server applications, etc. etc not secured to
face the Internet, then one has some potential problems -- no not
potential problems - they got problems.

OK. You don't mean packet forwarding.
