I've got the V1000H modem. I've set an inbound port to open, as well as configured a port forwarder. The internal host has a static IP so no issues with changing addys. Anyways, despite the fact that the port is configured as opened, when I do a port scan over a range that covers said port, it's still seen as closed. I know that my host is listening on the port as I can connect to it locally from another host on the subnet. Has anyone else had issues with this router in opening/forwarding inbound ports?
Yup, I know that. I'm using a high range port number though, and they shouldn't be blocked inbound I don't believe. From what I found online, Telus only blocks the ports below.
TCP: 21, 25, 80, 110, 6667
TCP/UDP: 135-139, 443, 445, 1433, 1434
They block way more ports then listed.
I have had port forwarding working for many years on my V1000H to access my security camera system.
See the thread for some troubleshooting ideas.
Thanks, I've gone through but I don't see anything unusual to try. Though, I did try using 8888, but no luck. I figure the fact that there's no option to explicitly allow it inbound in the firewall table options doesn't help either. Or, I can't remember, do NATs like port forwarding precede firewall rules?
If your firewall is configured for NAT only it should be allowing all ports.
As I posted in the other thread, you need to have a service listening on the port being tested in order to get a result. Testing random ports with nothing in your network listening on that port will always come back negative even if the port is open.
I've already tested it locally and it works fine. I can establish a connection from one host to the host with the service, plus I see its listening via netstat. It's only going through the firewall that its of issue. I've tried setting it to NAT only, yet the issue persists.
