Multiple problems with NAT rule creation UI



  • I'm trying to create a new rule but running into multiple problems, different ones depending on what browser I use.

    On Mac Safari: The destination address/mask field remains greyed out when you set the destination to Network, or indeed any other value. Screenshot: https://i.imgur.com/P7nPUlY.jpg

    On Mac Firefox and iOS Safari: When attempting to save the rule, it complains that the destination port range has not been set, even though it has. Screenshot: https://i.imgur.com/RxqocTj.jpg

    Additionally, on iOS Safari, the network size dropdown (after the slash) cannot be selected. This works OK in Mac Firefox though.

    These bugs together have rendered it impossible for me to create the required NAT rule. I don't suppose there's some magic I'm missing?



  • The first bug also affects Mac Chrome.

    It's such a clear and obvious bug that I can't help but think that maybe I'm just doing something wrong, but if I am, I don't know what it is.

    Additionally, if I change the destination port ranges from "Any" to "Other" and manually set the range from 1 to 65535, the error changes to "The target port range must be an integer between 1 and 65535." - which makes even less sense.



  • OK well I've solved at least one problem: You apparently can't create NAT rules for destination port ranges - only single ports. So that solves the second problem, and allows me to create the rule, but the error was very misleading.

    The first problem remains unsolved, but at least using a different browser is a workaround.

    If you want ALL ports to be forwarded, that is what 1:1 NAT is for and nothing that a port forwards should handle.

    Huh? Sure you can..

    But yeah concur with JeGr if you were going to do that you would just use a 1:1 nat.

    I don't have a mac to test with - but for sure could test it with multiple browsers on windows or linux..

    Let me fire up safari on my iphone or ipad..
    edit: Just fired it up on my iphone and works just fine.. When selected network as address the box did turn gray, but just clicked on it and it went white and could enter stuff..
