Hey there,

So I am trying to set up a Flex attachment for Plex Tv which requires me to open a port.
As far as I can tell, I have opened the port correctly as I can see its open if I go to canyouseeme.orgopenport.PNG

As you can see the port shows as open.
Below is my port forwarding table:

I am trying to forward it so that incoming traffic on port 18869 is routed to my apache server on port 88, however when I try to browse to 75.156.65.137:18869 I time out.

I am not sure where I have gone wrong with this.

Sorry forgot to add and I didnt see an edit option.
One solution someone here suggested was to disable IPv6 WAN and LAN. That did not help.

Here's what I see when I enter the IP address you posted. Resolves in a few seconds.

Maybe trying to access a network resource internal to your network from within your network by trying to access it from an external IP  is the problem. Can you access the resource on 192.168.1.xxx?

Managed to get it to work on my phone.
The problem was trying to access the external from the internal network haha
