You can skip this step if either:
You’re using a tunneling solution or
You want to access your antlets only from within your local LAN / WiFi.
If, on the other hand, you want to access the web software you’ve installed in your antlets from the world and you do not use a tunneling solution, then port forwarding is one way to achieve this.
To start, navigate to the 'Port Forwarding' page from the sidebar.
A port forwarding rule will route traffic going through a specified port on your antsle, called the Source Port to a specified port on a Destination antlet within your antsle, called the Destination Port.
To configure a port forwarding rule, click 'Add new' on the right-hand corner of the 'Port Forwarding Rules' table.
Configure the port forwarding rule as below:
Specify the protocol of the traffic that will be allowed with this rule
tcp, udp, or both
Private IP of the antsle
Port on the antsle where traffic will be routed to from outside the antsle
antlet where traffic will be routed to from the Source
Port on the destination antlet where traffic will be routed to from the Source
Toggle the port forwarding rule
Enabling a port forwarding rule takes a port forwarding rule configuration and actively routes the traffic. If left disabled, the port forwarding rule configuration will be saved, but the traffic will not be routed between the antsle and the antlet.
To enable a port forwarding rule, click the checkbox as pictured below.
Then confirm by clicking 'Yes, enable this rule!'
To make changes to the port forwarding rule configuration, click the 'Edit' button, as pictured below.
Make any changes as desired, and click 'Save Configuration'.
Deleting a port forwarding rule will permanently remove the configuration from antMan.
To delete a port forwarding rule, click the 'Delete' button as pictured below.
Confirm deletion by clicking 'Yes, delete this rule!'
