Title: Help with firewall rules
Post by: HenrysCat on May 10, 2022, 08:57:28 pm
I need to pass port 44158 to 192.168.0.126, so I set up a rule under, Firewall: Rules: WAN
Making sure it is at the top of the list above GeoIP

Now some connections are passed as below

And some are blocked by GeoIP as below

Any ideas what I have done wrong?

Thank all

Is your WAN interface your public IP address? If yes, you need to use NAT Port Forward instead of firewall rules.

Yes port forwarding is in place for 44158 under Firewall: NAT: Port Forward, port is confirmed as open, it's just odd how sometime its allowed and other time blocked.
