Port forwarding problems
I am trying to forward port 32400 so my plex can be accessed from outside of the house. I have read many tutorials on the port forwarding and not sure what I am doing wrong
My current set up
2 WAN ports (set up for failover)
- WAN (microwave connection)
- OPT1 (FTTC)
Attached is what i have so far and not sure why the plex is failing when attempting to forward the port
Edited (11-Oct) removed screen shot that showed disabled rules and attached new LAN-FW screen shot
Did you try without any failover set-up ?
I don't understand the way you configure failover. I though it was more like "defining one gateway group" and add one rule at LAN level target this virtual gateway.
I notice you have 2 rules and this is not clear to me.
that 2nd rule is greyed out (disabled) I am new to configuring failover. orginally I had 2 rules set up because that's what I was seeing in tutorials. I disabled the 2nd rule because someone said all I needed was the one rule. I want my main OPT1(FTTC) rule to be my main WAN for the house and the 2nd WAN (Microwave) to be my backup connection
I removed the disabled rules to eliminate confusion
On tyour NAT rule, why is DEST ADDR any?
Are you sure plex is TCP only?
Anything interesting in the firewall logs?
sorry for the late reply, didn't see your post till now. What should I put for the dest addr ?
The destination address, usually WAN address but maybe a VIP. Not sure about your setup. Whatever you are telling plex to connect to.
I have tried that and still not working.
I have 2 WAN connections, one WAN is just a backup and the other WAN is the primary connection. I don't load balance only use fail over features.
Not sure what to tell you about "not working" this stuff really does "just work." Maybe you should back off the cool shit like multi-wan and failover until you have the basics like port forwards and rules down.
Good list of things to check here:
