Simple Port Forwarding 3.2.6

Simple Port Forwarding works with WebPages and not directly with your router. Making it a safe program to use. Its no different than using Firefox, IE or any other browser to setup port forwarding yourself.
The program works by automating the process for you. So whether you don`t understand how to forward ports, or your simply looking for an easier way to forward ports then this program is for you.
Its port forwarding made simple. The main interface of the program is small and clean. Giving options of seeing what is going to be forwarded to the router and how many entries and ports it will use in the process. You have the ability to save your list and send it to another user of the program. An example would be, lets say you have a family member who lives far from you and doesn`t really understand port forwarding, so instead of spending a lot of time over the phone walking them through it you can simply have them use the program and have them load the list and update their router, then your all done. Now that`s a time saver. The program has a large database of known ports for over 700+ games and programs, so finding the port you need is made a little easier.
The program will also remember custom applications you put in, so you don`t have to reenter them. The program remembers the last IP address you use to forward to, this helps not having to set it every time you load new ports! The program has many extra tools, such as a tool to set your IP to static or back to DHCP. When port forwarding the router forwards to an IP address. When DHCP is enabled your IP address can change and thus breaking the port forwarding. By setting your IP to static it never changes. I added this tool to make setting a static IP as easy as possible for people instead of manually doing it on there systems (Which if a person has never done it before can be a little intimidating). The Program also makes adding the ports to the windows firewall as easy as a few clicks! Once you have your ports forwarded you can then test to see if they can be accessed right from with in the program using the built in port tester. One nice thing about the program is you can see it working with your router. So if there is a problem you will know, also it feels better seeing what`s going on with your router instead of just hoping the program is working. The program has other small features, such as a easy way to download and keep the router, program ports and languages up to date with a simple click of your mouse. Any questions? If you can`t find the help you need drop me a line in the forums!

History updates (Complete changelogs since the listing on this site)

3.2.6 [10-10-11]

Minor code tweaks.

Other versions : 3.2.5 3.2.4 3.2.3 3.2.2 3.2.1 3.1.6 3.1.5 3.1.4 3.1.3 3.1.2 3.1.0 3.0.21 3.0.20 3.0.19 3.0.18 3.0.17 3.0.16 3.0.15 3.0.14 3.0.13 3.0.12 3.0.11 3.0.10 3.0.9 3.0.8 3.0.7 3.0.6 3.0.5 3.0.4 3.0.2

v3.2.5 [09-09-11]

Removed message about removing the password from the program when log in failed. This was meant for the old way the program logged into the router. Since that has changed, this message was no longer needed.
Added some control dll's to have SPF use instead of the ones on the users systems. On a few rare systems, if the users theme controls had the wrong or mismatched versions then SPF or their computer would crash. I have put the correct files with SPF and it will use those now instead. I am hoping this will fix the crash problems for those few people.
Code Tweaks.

v3.2.4 [08-02-11]

Added more commands to handle more routers.

v3.2.3 [07-15-11]

Added better support for the window positions of the program. On some users systems, if they had another program running that worked with program windows, it would cause the program to save the window positions off screen, or if a user lowered their screen resolution and the old position would now be off screen. The program now checks the current screen resolution and brings the windows back on screen. I made sure this supports people with multiple monitors :-)
I have changed the program update feature. It use to offer to download and apply new updates (this is for the program not the router database, that still updates automatically). Well with some of the newer updates and planned updates in the future, I have found it to be a pain getting the update program I made to handle everything. I find it far easier to let users download the new setup, which will take care of everything. So now the program will check for a program update, and if there is one, it will open the simple port forwarding website if the user wants. Then the users can download the new version. This helps make things a lot easier on me :-)

v3.2.2 [05-04-11]

Code tweaks.

v3.2.1 [04-19-11]

Minor graphic fix.
Added more commands to handle more routers.

v3.1.6 [04-06-11]

Major bug fix. In the past when a user had DEP enabled on their system it would crash the program. In past updates I found some API's in windows to help stop this. This worked for many people, but there where still some users where DEP was still crashing the system. I was able to finally trace it to my custom buttons I had made. I have since replaced them with new buttons and redid the main windows of the program. So far on my system with DEP enabled the crashes have stopped :-)
Many UI changes
Multiple code tweaks.

v3.1.5 [03-31-11]

Multiple small bug fixes.
Multiple code tweaks.
More commands added to handle more routers.

v3.1.4 [03-23-11]

Bug fixes.

v3.1.3 [03-15-11]

Minor bug fixes.
Added more commands to handle more routers.

v3.1.2 [02-24-11]

Script Code improvements to better handle certain routers.

v3.1.0 [02-16-11]

Many code updates to make the scripts work better and handle more routers.
Program now remembers the window positions instead of always starting in the center of the screen. This is for users with dual monitors who wish to have the window open where they put it, such as on a different screen.
Code improvements and changes.
Normally all settings are stored in a ini file so people can use it on thumb drives and on different computers. The new window position settings will be the only settings stored in the registry. The reason for this, if you use the program from a thumb drive, save the window position, then when you run the program again from the thumb drive on a different system that has a smaller resolution and such, then the program would open off screen. by storing the keys in the registry it stays for the computer in ran on instead.

v3.0.21 [01-31-11]

Added more commands to handle more routers.

v3.0.20 [01-30-11]

Graphic bug fixes in the main window. The text in the list would become corrupt, that has now been fixed.

v3.0.19 [01-28-11]

GUI code fixes.
Added a new right click menu option to the rule list in the main window of the program. "Update All With Current Local IP" will allow a user to update all the rules in the list with their current local IP. This is useful for the people who use the portable version with thumb drives and on jobs and the local IP is different on each machine they run it on. Also for users who haven't ran the program for a while and their local IP is different. Before the user had to click on each rule to update the IP. Now they can do it with one click.
Major code improvements.
Updated the log text to be easier to read.
Program is now compatible with DEP, and should stop the program from crashing when DEP is enabled on the system.
Changed the search router list button from an icon to text. This will help new users see the search option better.

v3.0.18 [01-20-11]

Code fixes and improvements.

v3.0.17 [01-06-11]

Fix minor graphic glitch in the main window of the program.

v3.0.16 [12-26-10]

Code improvements on all script commands to better handle more routers.

v3.0.15 [12-04-10]

Added more commands to handle more routers.

v3.0.14 [11-16-10]

Code improvements to many script commands.
Added more commands to handle more routers.

v3.0.13 [10-29-10]

Updated All commands to better handle certain conditions that would cause the commands to fail if certain characters where in the command name. This update now allows the support of even more routers.

v3.0.12 [10-26-10]

Updated the Static IP tool with a new Save preset option. This is for those users who change networks.
Improved some of the user interface code.

v3.0.11 [10-23-10]

Some users who ran the port tester would have virtual networks installed. The port tester would have this IP chosen by default sometimes, which would cause the port test to fails since some users didn't see the IP and change it to their correct local IP. I have made the program now auto change to the users correct IP. This should help avoid those situations.

v3.0.10 [10-05-10]

Code improvements to multiple commands. Some older routers and even a few newer routers have the same text box names on the port forwarding pages for every text box. This made it hard for the program to know which box to go to when adding rules. The new improvements now handle this and these routers are now fully supported.

v3.0.9 [09-30-10]

Updated dozens of commands to better handle more routers.

v3.0.8 [09-04-10]

Tweaked some of the new commands for better performance.

v3.0.7 [08-29-10]

Updated Pro feature to detect port settings from newest version of StrongDC++
Some new routers have a validation code at login, I have added new commands to handle these new logins.

v3.0.6 [08-19-10]

Small bug fix, one of the commands that deals with combo boxes was failing on certain values. This has now been fixed.

v3.0.5 [08-11-10]

Small bug fix. One of the buttons on the check list wasn't working. That is now fixed :-)

v3.0.4 [07-18-10]

Added a new command line to run the program in a basic UI mode.So instead of the new interface the basic will go back to the windows default theme. This is for people on versions of windows older than XP or who have trouble with the new interface. To run in basic mode use the command line -basic or /basic

v3.0.2 [06-28-10]

Fixed graphic glitch when a user was using scaling higher than 100%.
Improved memory usage of the program. The new graphics where taking more memory than I cared for. The program now auto cleans its memory every 15 sec.
Program is now 100% portable.
Removed VB6 SP6 runtimes from the setup. Most systems already have these files and this will reduce the download size of the program setup.
