In order for certain programs to work properly, such as a BitTorrent client or an online game, it is sometimes necessary to open the correct ports on the router or point them to the correct computer on the network. However, not every router is equally easy to configure and that is something Simple Port Forwarding can help with. All that needs to be done is pick the right router from a list of nearly 1100 supported choose types, specify the router username and password, and finally specify which application to add. The program then makes the appropriate adjustments to the router’s configuration. Version 2.7.9 was released on Thursday and the following changes have been made since the previous entry in the Meuktracker:
Small fix, the detect multiple routers tool was not listing the routers in the correct order, that has now been fixed.
Added more commands to handle more routers.
Changed the way silent mode works in the program. On some routers (Linksys for example) the web page would not accept the way the program tries to log in (Example: http://admin:email@example.com)
When silent mode was enabled it kept the standard log in window from appearing so the page wouldn’t load. The program will now still suppress error messages from pages but allow the log in box to show.
So now no extra steps are needed to make pages like this work. If the router doesn’t accept the current log in (Example: http://admin:firstname.lastname@example.org) then the log in box will show like normal and the user can log in, even with silent mode on.
