    Incoming Web service (80 TCP), SSH (22 TCP and UDP ), and mDNS (UDP prot 5353)
    Outgoing
    Proxy-server connection (8082 TCP) d.egauge.net
    and Time-server connection (123 UDP)
    and updates on (80 TCP)

    How about you explain exactly what you are looking to accomplish.

    Slow down and explain.

    Things like:

    I need connections from the internet forwarded to these devices on port X

    I need all my inside devices to be able to make connections outbound on port Y.

    Details matter.



  • mDNS is a multi-cast local broadcast domain protocol and should not be used over the Internet.



  • @Tim_Lathen:

    … over 90 devices ... Incoming Web service (80 TCP) ...

    You're saying you have up to 90 web servers on your network which have to serve to the outside?



  • @Harvy66:

    mDNS is a multi-cast local broadcast domain protocol and should not be used over the Internet.

    I doubt there is any mDNS on the Internet and he shouldn't be sending it there.

    Also, which version of IP is the OP running.  If IPv4, does he have enough addresses for all that incoming stuff?  If using NAT to share one address, he's in for a load of hurt.
    No problem, if IPv6 though.
