Dear all

1.
What is best security wise, Port forward or port trigger?

2.
What ports shall I put in "Port target" and "Port trigger"?

3.
CSGO use for example 27000-27031 UDP, so it opens up for 31 ports?

Thank you for replying

Best regards

Question 1:

It is not likely a matter of "best". The answer depends on the overall requirements.

All in all unless you are in some sort environment that specifically requires port triggering then I doubt that you will need to use port triggering.

Questions 2 & 3:

The ports/port numbers to be used are those ports expected to be used by the application/game being run.

And the implementation of which ports or port ranges is done on the router.

You should not blindly open a range of ports. An open port, not being used or required, is just another vulnerability in the system.
