MiFi 4510L Port Forwarding?

Any idea how I can activate port forwarding for my mifi 4510 for an application not listed on the port forwarding screen.  There is no place to add you own applications on the port forwarding screen.

What app are you trying to use the port forwarding feature for?  Port forwarding on LTE devices generally does not work due to the protocols that are used behind the scenes.  In most cases your local devices and apps will not be accesible to the general internet like I assume you want to do.  The most common examples are XBox Live and network security cameras.

Do a quick check for us.  Go to and report back what your public IP address is.  We can tell you more from there.
