Open or Forward instructions Port 22 on Huawei B525 Modem

Peter-1980

Hi,

 

I spent hours on the phone trying to get instructions from optus on how to open port 22 on the Huawei B525 4G Modem that we have purchased from Optus. 

 

Optus Mobile Support said the Huawei B525 supports port forwarding only and I never got any instructions on how to apply those settings. 

 

Can someone please advise on how to open Port 22 or if not possible how to setup port forwarding on Port 22. 

 

Thank you for your help.

 

Cheers,

Peter,

Unless you have a business mobile broadband plan and have called an Optus Business Centre to have them add the stsic IP option - you will not get a public IP address.

 

Everyone shares the same external IP in a progcess called CGNAT, as IP addresses (IPv4) are a scarce comodoity as they have but run out and now auctions are held to buy blocks from different companies).

 

With CGNAT you cant port forward as you dont have an external IP.

The 4G I have is purchased from Optus Business Centre and I do have static IP. 

Can you please tell me the steps I need to do to open or forward port 22 on the Huawei B525. 

 

Thank you for your help. 

 

I look forward to your update.

 

Thanks,

Peter,

I dont have that model, I have the e5186 (model Optus sold before the B525 so judging its the same issue).

Optus Firmware loaded onto that router does not have the port forwarding turned on in the web gui.

 

I guess 99.99% of users would be under CGNAT so it was removed from view.

I dont know what Optus can offer you in regards to restoring that page may not be available.

Did find this: https://adventuresinadigitalland.blogspot.com/2019/02/port-forwarding-on-optus-4g-b525-router.html

 

Note: Optus support wont be able to assist you with this process as its well outside what they would cover.
