The problem is on it going back. Because the cheap router will see the
server sending out on port 80 & will assume that it should continue on
port 80 all the way to the other computer. The only solutions are the
expensive routers or turn a computer into a router. either way it costs
a bunch of money.
By the way both my Microsoft MN-500 & my Actiontec GT701-WG have the
option to change what port the inbound request is going to. The only
problem is the program by default sends on the port it was changed to &
the other computer is most likely ignoring that port.
