I cant seem to get any ports open.
Im trying to setup a VPN to my NAS. All is good with my Dyndns host and NAS, but my modem router combo is most likely causing ports to be blocked.
I use the PCCW modem because i have to I think. Attached via LAN to that is my new TP-LINK router.
PCCW setup the my router and put in the my netvigator PPOE login details onto the router, not the modem. The router is managing the DHCP for my network, however i cannot turn off the DHCP on the modem.
What i think i want to do is put the Modem in bridge mode, but alas the Silly PCCW modem doesn't have that function.
PCCW will be around in a few days, i hope with a different modem in hand and some ideas how to put it into bridge mode.
I know that at the ISP end they only block 4 ports. Not the ones that effect me.
Any ideas why i cant open any ports other than 80 which seems to be automatically open. I have been into setup on both the modem and the router and set the port forwarding.
I forwarded the ports to the NAS IP, I'm just thinking now, should i have forwarded the modem to the routers IP since it s assigning DHCP between the modem and the router?
Any advice is welcome !
For refrence the PCCW is the Wifi capable zxv10 w300, all black colour.
