[Wireless Router] How to set up OpenNAT?

Introduction of OpenNAT

Most proxy servers, firewalls, or SAMBA services will limit the access to connecting ports. These settings will possibly block the unknown packages and lead to connection failure when playing online games. OpenNAT is a new feature which allows users to open ports and allows connections through your firewall to your home network via preset game profiles. Users can create port forwarding rules with 2 clicks.
