What is passthrough mode?
Passthrough mode is a feature that allows a device to pass network traffic through it without modifying or inspecting the traffic. This can be useful in situations where a device needs to be transparently connected to a network, such as when using a cellular router to provide internet connectivity to a local network.
Bridge mode vs IP passthrough
Bridge mode and IP passthrough are both features that allow for transparent network communication, but there are some differences between them. Bridge mode is used to connect two different networks together and allow them to communicate as if they were part of the same network. IP passthrough, on the other hand, is typically used in conjunction with a modem or a cellular router to allow for a single public IP address to be used by multiple devices on a local network.
IP passthrough vs port forwarding
IP passthrough and port forwarding are two different features that can be used to expose devices on a local network to the internet. IP passthrough allows for a single device on the local network to have a public IP address and communicate directly with the internet, while port forwarding allows for specific ports on a public IP address to be forwarded to specific devices on the local network.
