Hey. I am trying to forward few of my network connected devices. One of the ports (9000) works fine. If i try to forward anything on 8080, it just opens my router. Any other port is not working.
Please help.

Welcome!

What router do you have and what are you forwarding to?

That is because the 8080 port is simply reserved for the router admin. The port is used for HTTP, and wouldn't recommend changing it, as some services might be dependent on it being classic. Furthermore, open 8980 is often seen as a risk. Why are you trying to forward 8080? Can you change the port your app uses?

NOTE: unqualified advice, am only a 7tg grader. Hope this helps.
