I've set up a port triggering rule to listen for activity on port 5016 (arbitrary choice) and forward port 80 to port 80. As far as I'm aware, this has been set up correctly.
How can I activate the trigger with a terminal command? Do I really have to connect to something on that port? I feel like there must be a simpler method.
Everything I've read either glosses over this aspect of port forwarding, or suggests you use an IRC client and the associated ports to trigger the forward. It seems very silly to have to use an IRC client to do this though.
