Title: Help with Helium Miner Port Forwarding
Post by: N0_Klu3 on December 07, 2021, 09:07:43 am
Hi all,

So I got a Helium HNT Bobcat miner.
It needs port 44158

So I went into FIREWALL: NAT: PORT FORWARD
(https://i.ibb.co/HGfP08H/Screenshot-2021-12-07-at-07-59-35.png)
I did a clone of this for my other WAN address (I run dual wan)

In FIREWALL: SETTINGS: ADVANCED
Under Network Address Translation
I ENABLED:
Reflection for port forwards
Reflection for 1:1
Automatic outbound NAT for Reflection

Under FIREWALL: NAT: OUTBOUND
I switched to Hybrid
(https://i.ibb.co/2gFz6cf/Screenshot-2021-12-07-at-08-04-11.png)
Cloned this rule for the other WAN address too.

When I check on my miner it keeps saying:
    "10.0.0.240:44158": "closed/timeout",

Also when I scan my external IP with that specific port it says Timed-Out
Or closed , incoming traffic denied.

Can someone help me to get this working?

So I managed to get it to work by changing the Port Forward from Destination port forward of 44158 to * or ANY.

This has pretty much opened up EVERY port under the sun to that device which isnt exactly what I want, but now when I do a port open check its showing as open and my HNT miner is syncing successfully.

I'd really like to close it back down and get it to only work on port 44158

Can anyone help me with this?
I think I got the forward to work but with my dual WAN its causing issues with the reply and the miner is thinking that the NAT is closed.

Can someone help me port forward correctly with dual WAN?
