In order to have a better understanding of all options. You can refer to its details below:

Open All Ports: When this option is selected under settings. It allows all ports to be opened and you can transfer any data to any desired port.

Block All Ports: When this option is selected under settings. It allows all ports to be blocked and doesn’t allow any internet traffic to be passed from the VPN connection.

Block all but enable following: When this option is selected under settings. It allows ports to be blocked but makes a few exceptions in which you can allow a specific port or multiple ports to be opened as per desire.

Step 2: Establish VPN Connection
  • Launch PureVPN app
  • Enter your PureVPN credentials and click login to your account
  • If you have multiple subscriptions against one email, you will be given an option to choose the account you want to log in to. (please select 0d account as that’s your dedicated IP account)

  • You’ll see list of locations. Select your desired location to connect.
  • You are now connected successfully.

  • This is how to test Port Forwarding Add On:
  1. Download the TCP listener from this link
  2. Connect your VPN to any desired location. If you’re already connected to VPN, kindly disconnect it and then connect it, so the port settings may apply.
