Reverse port forwarding, can be referred to as reverse tunnel. Reverse tunnel is a very useful way to access some application on the computer that behind a restricted or tight Firewall/Gateway/Router. For security concern, a lots of administrators will configure Firewall/Gateway/Router to refuse the connection from outside. So you just can not directly access those computers without reverse tunnel technology. Normally, reverse tunnel include two components. One you can call client component and the other is server component. You should deploy the client component on the side of the computer that behind Firewall/Gateway/Rourter and the server component on the side of your computer. The client and server component will automatically create a session connection to control reverse tunnel. The server component will listen on a port that you can connect. So when you access the port of server component. The server component will control the client component to create a reverse tunnel connection to the server component. The Firewall/Gateway/Router will not restrict this. Then client component can receive data from server component and port forwarding to the application on the computer that behind Firewall/Gateway/Router. This is the basic idea of reverse tunnel that can let you access some application that you can not directly access.
For example,below picture you see a computer B, computer B is a computer that behind a firewall or a router. Computer A is your local computer. If you want to access a service of computer B, say port number is 80. The first things you must do is that you must configure firewall or router of computer B to open the privilege for your local computer A. Then you can access the service of computer B after all those configurations.
But if computer B behind a firewall or inconfigurable router, you don't have the right to configure the firewall or router and you can not persuade the network manager to configure for you,because of security issue.
Now, you can use our reverse tunnel technology, you can deploy a software on computer B or some computer that can directly access computer B. Then the reverse port forwarding and reverse tunnel software will connect computer A. Because of the connection is from computer B to computer A, so the firewall or router of computer B can not block the connection. After the reverse tunnel software successfully connect to computer A, then the software will bridge the communication between computer A and B. By this way, you don't need to configure the firewall or router that you don't have the right to configure and you can access the service of computer B, because of the access bypass the firewall of computer B.
Using our reverse tunnel software - Reverse Port Forwarding Wizard. You can deploy the software on computer A and B. Starting a service of reverse tunnel client on computer B and starting a service of reverse tunnel server on computer A, the services of server and client will work together to bridge the communication between computer A and B,let you easily access the service of computer B.
Using Reverse Port Forwarding Wizard, you can automatically manage port mappings of your router. Reverse Port Forwarding Wizard use UPnP technology communicating with your router to view, add or delete port mapping. Reverse Port Forwarding Wizard provide you a tool that can monitor port forwardings setting of your router, so if your router's port forwardings setting have been changed, this tool will give you a notify let you check your router's current setting of port forwarding. Port forwarding Tester is provided too. This tester can let you check if your router has opened some ports you want.
At the same time, maximum sessions option of Reverse Port Forwarding Wizard software can let you limit count of connections of reverse tunnel. You can log protocol data that go through Reverse Port Forwarding Wizard into your log file. This is a greate helper to debug or learn network protocol. "resolve web site to ip address" utility tool is provided and if you enable ip strategy option, you can add allow ip list and block ip list to define what ip address can access Reverse Port Forwarding Wizard. There is a monitor tool let you monitor which ip has connected with Reverse Port Forwarding Wizard and how much datas have been reverse tunnel.
Reverse Port Forwarding Wizard software integrate http proxy function. When you adding a port mapping, you get an option to choose this port mapping run like a http proxy. This function can let you access web service that behind a firewall or inconfigurable router.
When you add a reverse port forwarding or reverse tunnel, you can set this reverse tunnel to automatically startup when your computer power on or when Reverse Port Forwarding Wizard start. Reverse Port Forwarding Wizard integrate an often used ports list let you quickly search or add application's often used ports. A ip viewer can let you check your computer's local ip address and external ip address. A greate function is that Reverse Port Forwarding Wizard will flash its tray icon to let you know that network data are travelling through your reverse tunnel.
All those functions together, Reverse Por Forwarding Wizard software is a very powerful reverse port forwarding and reverse tunnel software.
