Developer website: codelaide software

Lighthouse is a dynamic port forwarding utility, allowing you to enable and disable port forwardings with just a single click. Both NAT/PMP (Apple Airport base stations) and UPnP (D-Link, Linksys, Netgear) protocols are supported.

Port forwardings are frequently necessary for tools such as instant messengers, file-sharing utilities and other networked applications that are run from behind a NAT gateway (read: a home network router). Being able to dynamically manage your port forwardings saves you from all the hassles of having to deal with cumbersome static forwardings.

  • Start and stop port forwardings with a single click
  • Lives in your menu bar - always easily accessible
  • Automatically start port forwardings when applications are launched
  • Automatically start Lighthouse when you log into MacOS X
  • Supports NAT/PMP routers (such as Apple Airport base stations)
  • Supports UPnP routers (such as D-Link, Linksys or Netgear branded routers)
  • Support for Growl notifications
  • Import and export profiles to share them
  • Download more profiles from our website
  • Comes with pre-made port mapping profiles for popular applications
  • Localized in English, French and German
