manox141982ytry upnp most today's router hav that ... thats what programs like utorrent use to forward their port .. and what do you mean by i have linux , do you hav ssh access to router ...i don't think having linux on your pc help
What I'm talking about is, boingo allows no access to the router settings. So doing this is much harder then just going into the setting and port forwarding because you can't just do that with boingo. So I have to try to find a way to do it by getting around doing without the router settings.@manox14
You can't alter your router's port forwarding table from Linux. Using iptables you are altering your firewall on your system, not your router's.
Your only way to configure the routing table would be SNMP, UPNP, or a webinterface/cli on the router.
A ps4 already tries to use upnp, and if they lock it down, you won't be able to use SNMP or the web/cli
So you are out of luck.
From my research, Boingo is a shared wireless internet hotspot provider, so you would never have access to do this. You need your own internet service to use incoming ports, and trying to access someone elses router to reconfigure it is illegal/immoral.
@ItzMunx I saw that, but kind of ruled it out because I thought it was unlikely. Shame on me!
Unfortunately though, since they aren't an actual ISP it still doesn't help much. Plus, if I was a betting man I would say they likely do carrier grade nat to handle so many subscribers on the base, so even if you could get into it, you still wouldn't be able to forward ports.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news :(
