Port Forward ANY or 1-65535 gets input Error

  • Hi

    I would like to forward UDP Traffic from SIPServerIP:5060 to the SIP Phone.
    Firewall Logs Entry:
    Sep 4 21:48:50 WAN 195.XXX.XXX.XXX:5060 178.xxx.xxx.xxx:61890 UDP

    195.xxx.xxx.xxx is the fix Server IP Port is FIX

    178.xxx.xxx.xxx is my WAN IP Port variable

    I tried to set Rule. But I get a error.

  • You have "Redirect Target Port" set for "SIP" i.e. 5060, that needs to be Custom and 1.

    When forwarding a range, in your case 1 to 65535, i.e. a "DMZ" type setup, the target port is the 1st port for the target port range, in this case it MUST be 1, since you are forwarding all ports.

    Now if you forwarded 1000-1999, and you put 2000 in the, that would forward 1000 to 2000 and 1050 to 2050. for example.

    TLDR, Change "Redirect Target Port" to "Custom" and 1.

    You want to forward ALL udp traffic on any port to this 1 box?  Why would you think you need to do this for sip to work?
