Has anyone gotten port forwarding to work with the Hitron CDE-30364? If so, I'd love to learn any hints. I've setup the ports I need in the "Forwarding" section of the "Firewall" portion of the web interface. The ports and computer IP addresses I need show up with a check in the "Enable" box, but nothing from the outside can get through to the computer in question. I tried turning the Firewall OFF, but that didn't make any difference. I've rebooted the modem. I'm stumped.
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
I need to forward ports 22, 80, 443 and 8080. This was working the day before, using the previous Cisco modem, so I'm sure the firewall on OS X is not preventing this. I reconfirmed in the OS X System Preferences that the firewall is OFF.
The CDE-30364 seems to not want to forward public ports of 22 and 8080, so I set up 2222 public to forward to 22 private and 18080 public to forward to 8080 private.
Thanks for any advice.
Whereas all those ports worked last week, with my previous Cisco modem, none of them work now with the Hitron CDE-30364.
The web interface claims that port forwarding is enabled, but all the evidence is that it is not - i.e., none of the following work:
ssh -p 2222 my_ip_address
All services are available from other computers on my home network, if I access them via the local IP address (i.e. 192.168.0.X). But, if I try using the pubilcally available IP provided by Rogers the connection attempts timeout.
I do have a wireless router between the Hitron modem and my internal network. That router is setup in bridge mode, so it is not trying to assign its own IP addresses. I did try plugging my main computer directly to the Hitron modem to bypass the wireless router, and that made no difference (yes, I did confirm that the IP address in the port forwarding setup matched the IP assigned by the Hitron modem).
Note: the Cisco modem accepted to forward to ports 22 and 8080, so I didn't need to setup the public ports as different.
Nope, DHCP is enabled on the Hitron. My wireless router is connected to the Hitron, and wireless router is in bridge mode.
I'll give up on port forwarding with the CDE-30364, and try to switch my config to run the Hitron as a bridge, and do DHCP and port forwarding from the Apple Airport Base Station that is downstream. I won't have time to try that until next weekend.
Thanks for trying to help. I appreciated it.
Yeah, thats the only other thing i could sugest.
Having teh hitron in bridge mode, would effectively just turn it into a modem.. letting the airport do all the DHCP, all the forwarding, etc.. it SHOULD work if the hitron is just doing something simple like blocking those ports.
If not... its almost as if its blocking them at the packet level on the hitron 😞
Now, i beleive (not 100% tho) that to change the hitron into bridged, you have to call in, we cant switch it from the regular interface, but rogers can do it for us.
Other than that.. is it an option to go back to the cisco?
