I was using my Slingbox to stream video when I was away from home. I do not remember I have opened any port in my router to allow in bounce traffic to my Slingbox. Would you please tell me how my IPad can access the SlingBox from outside?
Automatic router configuration by either UPnP or NAT-PMP, which allow a LAN device to request ports be opened on the router. See Sling Inc. support article What's Universal Plug and Play?
