Thanks for the tip. I will attempt this. Did Rogers provide guidance on this or did you figure this out on your own?
Sorry... I’m sure you don’t understand the problem. The current software doesn’t allow to forward ports. Please read all previous posts.
For those of you having problems with port forwarding, do any of you have Protected Browsing or any of Rogers' other enhanced security features enabled?
I was going through the Xfinity forums and found this very recent post where a user discovered that having Xfinity's xFi Advanced Security features enabled was breaking port forwarding.
I've never used the app and your suggestion to dump it is irrelevant to me. I always connect to the router using the default IP address. I'll try to explain the problem one more time.
Here is a simple scenario. I've got two PCs at home and I need to access them using the Remote Desktop (default port 3389). I need to add the following two entries.
Port 7000 ---> Port 3389 ---> Local PC1
Port 7001 ---> Port 3389 ---> Local PC2
Problem #1. Here is the error:
Please enter a value more than or equal to Start Port.
I've never seen this kind of limitation with any router I had before.
Ok. Let’s change the port number
Port 2000 ---> Port 3389 ---> Local PC1
Port 2001 ---> Port 3389 ---> Local PC2
First entry is accepted and I’m able to connect to my first PC. The main problem with the second entry.
Problem #2. Here is the error:
Conflict with other Port Forwarding service. Please check port and IP!
It doesn't allow me to reuse the same port number and I'm not able to connect to the second PC. That's the main problem. I'm using a DiskStation and it requires even more than two entries with the same port number to use its multiple services.
The app has its own issues but the main problem is the router/software limitations or bugs.
While I havent tried doing multiple of the same internal port like @impr2003.
I know prior to the app, that forwarding was working right off the modem.
I did have a few port forwards set up going to my server box.
I am pretty sure since the app came out, it was working at one point.
Pretty sure I put in the forward for my PS4 via it (as it has a preset, and didnt have to do it manually).
But definitely needs to be fixed.
I just had Rogers installed 1GB Ignite package, love it.
Quick question, I have a CCTV system at home that was accessible prior to switching to Rogers. I cannot find any step by step that tells me how to setup Port Forwarding on this new modem, last I tried it told me I had invalid port number?
Would appreciate if anyone can help - much thanks
