Forwarding Simconnect port through router

Quick question, I'm using the default port 6600 for Simconnect.Does this need to be forwarded on my router through my server pc (the one running FSX) or my client laptop (the one running everything else; ASE, EFB, FSCommander, etc)?Also is it a TCP or UDP port?
Please donate today!

With my D-Link DGL-4300 router, I can only specify one ip address to have any specific port forwarded.If my desktop is 192.168.0.160 and my laptop is 192.168.0.161, I can only specify port 6600 to be forwarded through one of those ip's, not both.If I try to make another ruleset for port 6600 for the second ip, it tells me that port is already being forwarded.P.S.This is all just for my router. I don't use any windows firewalls or 3rd party software firewalls.
Through both firewalls.
