What's port forwarding/port mapping?
Most routers these days can be configured automatically by Setup on Slingbox.com using a technology called Universal Plug and Play, or UPnP. However, some routers need manual configuration, and that's where our handy Slingbox Network Setup Assistant comes in. It takes you by the hand and walks you through the process of configuring your router for port forwarding.
