Software Update: Simple Port Forwarding 3.0.0

PcWinTech has released version 3.0.0 of Simple Port Forwarding. In order for certain programs, such as a BitTorrent client or an online game, to work properly, it is sometimes necessary to open the correct ports on the router or to point 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. The user can select the correct router from a list of almost 1261 supported choose types, specify the router username and password, and finally select which application to add. The program then makes the appropriate adjustments to the router’s configuration.

A lot has changed in version 3.0.0. Not only has the program been given a new look, there is now also a paid version in addition to the still existing free version. The list of programs and ports they use has moved to the Pro version. Manually adding programs is still possible. The 13 dollar license can also be used for the program Simple Internet Meter are used. Here is the full changelog for version 3.0.0:

Changes in version 3.0:

  • New & improved user interface.
  • Added more commands to handle more routers.
  • Code improvements & tweaks.
  • Removed Branding options, program is no longer able to be branded.
  • Removed custom color options. With the new Skin interface changing colors is not an option. On all non skinned windows they will use the current system theme for colors.
  • Program is now Free/Pro version. The core of port forwarding is still free. So users can still auto port forward as always. All extra features and all new upcoming features will be part of the pro version.
  • Key codes for the pro version will also work for Simple internet Meter. So users get 2 programs for the price of one, and all current buyers of Simple Internet Meter get Simple port Forwarding Pro for free.
  • Previous versions of simple port forwarding will no longer get any updates. Such as Routers, ports and program updates.
