I am setting up a server, which to access the UI needs to have port 443. I dont want to have port 443 open to the public like that, and would rather have the port forward as follows:
Internet --> TCP 10443 --> [internal-IP]:443
I set up the port forwarding in everyway that is possible, putting the port number in each of the slots, still not working. Set up a port forwarding rule, does not work.
Am i missing something? ive done this on my old DDWRT router and it worked great, no reason it shouldnt work now.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I have figured this out, took me long enough.
Setting up is as follows:
[Application to forward] = Custom
+++++ ADVANCED SETTINGS +++++
[Protocol] = TCP
[Source Port] = ANY
[Destination Port] = Specific
[Enter external port #]
[Forward to port] = Specific
[Enter Internal Port #]
If you haven't already, use the DHCP settings in the Advanced menu to set that computer to have a static IP address (via DHCP). That way, the IP won't change when the DHCP lease expires. It probably won't anyway, but this will make sure it doesn't. (It's a good idea for printers, too.)
