As the heading implies am looking for help to port forward my f@ast 3864 modem. Have looked at at PortForward.com and can't find what i am aftfer.
I have all the Ip's and port numbers i need to open, am just having trouble finding where to and how to create the rule in the modem.
I have the same issue trying to get Squeezebox radio stations to work, I have tried the Port Triggering with no success. I too have all the port numbers but have no place to put them. Has anyone had any success in getting port forwarding working?
Yes I think that port triggering is for a device on the LAN to open ports to incoming traffic.
Virtual servers should open ports but I found that it depends how you login to the Sagemcom to make anything happen.
I managed to get one machine with port 80 open but using the same procedure to open port 21 for FTP access didn't work.
This is my first experience with Optus and I expected something like port forwarding to be needed and available to everyone.
Eventually I gave up and decided to cancel my contract, see this thread with others raising concerns about the Sagemcom. https://community.optus.com.au/t5/Broadband-Telephony/bd-p/Broadband
However to be fair to the support team I was telephoned today by them and assured that my questions will be looked at.
Thanks for the tip, I will try setting a different listening port as soon as I can get someone to visit. I will also try SSH and Telnet on ports 22 and 23 and post what happens.
However if the Sagemcom is set for FTP to an external drive it does seem strange (to me) that FTP is one of the options in the virtual servers list and any local ip can be set as the destination. Still I will keep an open mind and give it a go, as you can appreciate it is a bit difficult doing this from overseas.
I tried the virtual server option to get my squeezebox playing radio but still no luck. no matter which option I try i get no response from the ports I think I have opened. There does seem to be something blocking various ports which is odd, my plex server had the router self configure! I think I may buy another router.
