To open or redirect TCP and UDP ports on the routers provided by us, follow this handy guide!

This procedure is meant for advanced users! Only use manipulate ports if you have a need for them. The incorrect usage of TCP and UDP ports can cause security breaches in your system. Do note that some troubleshooting solutions when it comes to connection problems require our agents reset your router which can reset your configurations.

Very important : The TCP/UDP ports 80 and 443 are exclusively reserved for oxio and must never be redirected or closed.

First of all, make sure you have access to your router’s settings.

Follow this simple guide if you don’t know how!
