    Port triggering is a special variant of port forwarding. Unlike port forwarding, the Gigaset SX763 WLAN dsl forwards the data from the port block to the PC which has pre- viously sent data to the Internet via a certain port (trigger port). This means that approval for the data transfer is not tied to one specific PC in the network, rather to the port numbers of the required Internet service.

  • Page 67: Port Forwarding

    Port Forwarding If you configure Port Forwarding, the Gigaset SX763 WLAN dsl outwardly assumes the role of the server.
