So for some reason the Mikrotik Router seems to randomly be blocking remote access to some port forwarded devices. It'll work just fine for days on end sometimes then abruptly drop any incoming connections.
This happens both with;
1) Camera system with remote web / remote app ability
2) Unifi Access Points stop communicating with the off-site controller and show as offline (But there is no firewall configuration that needs to be done on the remote site where the Mikrotik is, so not sure how this relates but this also happens while the camera system goes offline)
The network works completely normally on the LAN side, when I go on site I can get on the internet with everything just fine, use wireless access etc...
I'm running 6.47.4
How I have it setup;
Firewall > NAT I have a DST_NAT action with donate for the chain, the destination address is the WAN IP, protocol TCP Destination Port is the port to be forwarded
I've checked both

If you would like to direct requests for a certain port to an internal machine (sometimes called opening a port, port mapping), you can do it like this:
/ip firewall nat add chain=dstnat dst-port=1234 action=dst-nat protocol=tcp to-address=192.168.1.1 to-port=1234

Neither variant seems to resolve it, rebooting the router doesn't change anything.
Abruptly all of the sudden it'll eventually start working again....
What gives? What else can I provide to help you guys diagnose it
I can remotely access the router with zero issue with the configuration I have so I know that works.
