Hi all, just wondering if anyone can help me! I've got media browser working over the internet, just fine, with a previous wifi router... but not my current one...Or rather, it does work with my current one when the firewall is turned off.. but not when the firewall is turned on.. The set-up is as follows: * DNS - via no-ip.org, DUC running to update the IP assigned to my no-ip sub-domain - this works fine/perfectly * IPv4 network within the house * WiFi router & firewall: TP-Link TD-W8980 * Router WAN port showing the correct public IP address * Port forwarding configured as: Service Port: 8096; IP Address: mediabrowser server host IP address; Internal port: 8096; Protocol: TCP; Status: Enabled; Interface: pppoa_0_38_0d (this is the correct interface, there is only 1) * IPv4 Firewall configured as: -Deny unless explicitly enabled -A set of outbound allow rules which definitely work fine (e.g. facetime has been tested, and works, with the firewall on - wow, that needs a lot of ports!) (now the non-functioning rules) - Rule#1 (MediaServer1) LAN Host: MediaServer (see below) WAN Host: Any host Time: Any time Action: Allow Direction: IN Status: Enabled Protocol: TCP MediaServer is defined as: IP Address: mediabrowser server IP address; Port; 8096 - Rule#2 (MediaServer2) <-- this rule shouldn't have been needed, and besides it doesn't work. But I put it in, in case the firewalling happened prior to the NATing LAN Host: Ext.MediaServ (see below) WAN Host: Any host Time: Any time Action: Allow Direction: IN Status: Enabled Protocol: TCP Ext.MediaServ is defined as: IP Address: gateway/firewall (internal) IP address; Port: 8096 So, with the firewall disabled the service works end-to-end, accessing via my public (sub-)domain... As soon as I enable it, it doesn't work... And I can't figure it out Even a basic www.portchecktool.com check follows the same pattern - it can connect to 8096 with the firewall off, but can't with it on..But I cannot see anything else that I can do to make it work/open the port on the firewall Please can any one help!!!!
