Port Forward

Hello, 
I was wanting to host a web server for personal use.
Is there any way i can port forward to host it?

No. Here is someone whose tried it all:  https://jacksontech.net/index.php/articles/hughesnet-networking-faq/

Basically, you are pretty much invisible to the internet except within the Hughes network. VPN is about the only way around it and even that is shaky depending on setup.

Aside from the fact it's not possible thanks to CGN, you would be in violation of your contract, as well as the Acceptable Use Policy, both are located and can be read at http://legal.hughesnet.com

Hi glassman,

Thanks for posting and welcome! That is a great question, however as mentioned it is not plausible while using our service and should not be attempted due to contractual agreements. If you have anymore questions or concerns feel free to let us know.

Thank you,

Re: Port Forward

Why can they be open? I got a game called farming simualtor, And to host a LAN server you also have to have a internet connection to verify a player, And i cannot host the LAN server since the ports are blocked, Meaning i cannot play on my other LAN computers is there anyway this can be fixed?

Re: Port Forward

As far as ports, Hughesnet only blocks port 25 traffic now, the rest are open and clear.

Thats what you said on this post:

Re: Port Forward

The ports are not blocked(aside from port 25), you just can't forward.

Do your self a favor and read up on CGN, Private vs Public IPv4, as well as IPv4 exhaustion.  You will then see why you can't host anything on Hughesnet.
