Port forwarding is a module available in Network Control. When Network Control receives packets on specified adapters/ports, it redirects these packets to specified local IP and port.
This functionality is typically useful when you want to reach an application on a computer within the ship network structure. Network Control can be a gateway for such initiatives coming from shore. Be aware that the IP address of the computer where Network Control is installed must be reachable from outside, preferable through a static IP. This is how the Port Forwarding module looks like.
