Re: NAT Port Mapping question

Actually the rules are needed to let the traffic through the firewall after the port mapping. But your observation that the NAT takes place before the firewall forward chain is key to getting it to work. When I change the firewall rule to allow port 80 to forward (instead of 10123) I can access from...

Re: NAT Port Mapping question

I removed the loopback rule. I disabled the service port 80. Neither of these changes made any difference. I'm running RouterOS 6.0RC2, but I had the same issue with 5.21. It does not appear to have anthing to do with a particular port. If I use NAT to forward from an outside port to the same inside...

Re: NAT Port Mapping question

Yes, the rule increments, but the outside client does not connect. If I change the rule (and the inside device so that it listens on the same port number that the outside uses) then the outside client can connect. The problem only occurs if the inside and outside ports are different. I've tried this...

NAT Port Mapping question

I want to map an external port to a different port internally on a server in my network. I understand how to make this work if I want to map to the same port. For example: /ip firewall nat add chain=dstnat dst-port=1234 action=dst-nat protocol=tcp to-address=192.168.1.1 to-port=1234 will map the ext...

Thanks. The terminal command /lcd reset-calibration worked.

Re: 751U 2HnD all LED flashing in unison including power PWR

I had one 751U exhibit the same symptoms. I plugged in a different powersupply (one that came with a 750, which has a slightly larger current capacity and is 24v instead of 12v) and the problem went away. (The 751U will work with an input voltage up to 30 v.) It could be that you have a marginal pow...

Re: RB751U Wireless Performance

Here are some more results when the client is further from the AP. Using the Intel card in the laptop, the Tx/Rx Rates showing up on the RB751U AP were hanging around 36.0Mbps/39.0Mbps, the signal strength was about -77 at the AP. The CCQ at the AP was reported as about 40 to 45%. The peak throughpu...

Re: RB751U Wireless Performance

OK. I'll test again with a lower signal strength further from the AP and report back. I was reporting CCQ and strengths when the test was active, not inactive, but I don't think that I can get the signal strength that low and also keep in line of sight. These APs are indoors.
