How do you mean? Incoming to your handset or using it as a wifi hotspot?

I don't think it's possible. I've limited knowledge of networks, but isn't port forwarding making sure incoming traffic on certain ports goes to a specific IP/MAC address on your network via the router/gateway? Eg, I want my router to forward all incoming traffic on port 80 to IP address 192.168.2.117.

If you're using mobile internet, your phone is technically its own gateway?

Do you mind me asking what you need it for?

I've no idea what this thread is about, but Debrett's says that, at the end of a meal, port forwarding should always be done to the left.

After a quick google, it looks as though you're stuck with the bog standard "Enable Wifi Hotpsot" if you want to conect the phone to the PC wirelessly. Although if you're using 3G on the handeset, you can connect the phone to the laptop via usb cable using USB Tethering or Internet Passthorugh (Can't remember which) and the laptop will use the phone's internet connection.

There is software available that will turn HTC phones into wireless routers but it's only available for windows mobiles.

am i right in saying you are trying to remote into you laptop from your htc to view the cctv? if so then you will need to port forward - but from your home router to your laptop. not with your phone. you will need some remote software on your htc (i would recommend android vnc as its free). you could remote in without port forwarding if you are at home on the same wifi network, but if you are outside of this network and want to remote in you will need to forward port 5900 from your router to the laptop and you will need to find out your laptops external ip address to do this. sorry if im barking up the wrong tree.
