Since applications can set up port forwarding rules in my home network's router, I'm assuming I can as well via a command or something of that sort, correct?
Here's my dilemma: I have a Belkin wireless router that loves to "disappear". I'm not sure why, but the remote management of it seems to stop after less than a day pretty consistently. The router will continue to function, but I won't be able to manage it.
I need to forward a particular port to a machine on this network, but I can't power-cycle the router (typically the only way to get the management address (192.168.2.1) to respond again).
So back to the original question; can I set a forward like applications do? Or for that matter, is there an application that I can get to allow me to manage that from the (Windows) PC?
Thanks so much in advance, and all apologies knowing nothing about networking.
