TCP commands and a local router

Recommended Posts

I'm new to AutoIT TCP functions...Are there any impacts with being behind a local router? Will I need to create port-forward address in the router?

For receiving an inward connection yes you will need to setup port forwarding.

So when the router recives a connection request on port xxxxx it forwards it on to your listening port for your app. You need to make sure you have a static internal ip address on your local network and you'd need to know your WAN ip for the connecting client
