How do I make port 18080 open for incoming connections on my router on Linux (Ubuntu 16.04) for running the Monero daemon?

I don't have access to the physical router in my building that I use for wireless connection to the Internet and I am wondering if I can do so using Ubuntu 16.04.


The methods to open ports are specific to the router you have. You don't need physical access to the router, just access to the routers web admin interface. So, I suggest you search for your specific router model and instructions, if this is your own router.

If you are on a non-configurable network like a public WiFi, instead you need to ask the Internet provider to open the port for you.

If you need to configure the Ubuntu firewall, you can install iptables plus ufw and open the 18080 port on the firewall with the directive ufw allow.
