In most cases, tasks like setting a local web server or remotely managing torrents make the presence of a static IP address a mandatory condition. Unfortunately, though having a static IP address comes with many advantages, it’s also a thing pretty hard to achieve. Portforward Static IP Address makes setting a static IP address a simple and easy job.

The program comes with a simplistic and neat interface and automatically scans your network for available IP addresses and can choose the best IP address and DNS server for you. Furthermore, there’s no need to worry if you have more than one network card as this tool can configure the IP address for multiple network adapters separately.

I also like that it lets you save network profiles. This is especially handy when you travel a lot and need to switch between different network configurations according to your current location.

There’s also a handy list of Unavailable IP Addresses which helps you view which IP addresses are currently assigned to other computers or devices on your network and avoid the inconvenient situation of having two computer or devices with the same IP address.

In conclusion, this tool is a great solution for anyone in need of quickly setting up a static IP address. The fact that it’s free makes it even more desirable.

Guest The interface is simple, but not "simplistic" as stated in the review.

Guest Con: it is neither working nor scanning my computer. The field stays blank.
