The average person does not know what port forwarding is
You know what? I didn't know what it was at one time either. I bet no one in the world was born just knowing it. Many of us have taken the time to figure it out though, because it's important. It's not that complicated. Portforward.com
can walk you through it, for most commonly used routers. Portforward.com also happens to be the first result you get from Google by typing in 'portforwarding.' There's no excuse for not taking the time to do some reading, except for laziness, and an insistence on having immediate gratification.
Also, what happens when someone doesnt have access to their router settings.
They could either stand around whining like a baby about how unfair life is, or they could contact their network administrator to find out what their options are, like a responsible adult would. Wanna take a guess at which solution works, and which one doesn't?
Shhh! My common sense is tingling. ~ Deadpool
