Hey there!

Port forwarding is a technique of redirecting the request/data to a different port. This is usually used to bypass the firewall. Suppose there is an application that accepts requests only from a particular port X and the requests from other ports are rejected by the firewall. In this case, you forward the request to port X to bypass the firewall.
