PureVPN offers a secure internet experience with over 6,500+ VPN servers in 78+ countries. Our server network is well-known for its unrestricted access to just about anything users need.

PureVPN has come a long way since its inception. We strive to give our users maximum control over their VPN connection by offering an easy-to-use interface that enables them to open all or up to 16 different ports of their choice. Our port forwarding offering is the best in the industry, and we’re proud to offer it to our users.

We recently conducted an analysis and found that most of our users only apply port forwarding policies to 21 locations. With this in mind, we’ve decided to only support port forwarding at these 21 most-used locations. This will help us improve the quality of service offered on these dedicated servers. In addition, it’ll allow us to add new locations to our VPN network and increase the overall network footprint – something our users have been requesting for some time now.

List of locations that support Port Forwarding

Make sure you connect to any of the following locations if you want to apply the port forwarding policies.

[New York, Seattle, Dubai, Brussels, Singapore, Mumbai, Los Angeles, Toronto, Brisbane, Paris, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Zurich, Istanbul, Milano, Frankfurt, Kuala Lumpur, Amsterdam, Moscow, Stockholm, London]
