automatic port forwarding

Mon Jan 13, 2020 5:11 am

hi guys, i have 2 devices:
router nokia( gateway
rb 2011(mikrotik my main router

i can't put nokia in bridge because it's blocked, so i open the ports from 1 to 60000 to my main router

but every time that i need to open a port from one service like plex, emby and other i have to go in winbox and set a nat rule at firewall to redirect to my pc.
i enable upnp in RB and nokia but i still need to add at nat rule.

is there any way to redirect ports automatic?

Hey. UPNP is a tool to open ports automaticly, but only for LAN device relative to UPNP router. Your problem is, that your LAN router is Nokia, but UPNP router is Tik - Tik will UPNP for his only one LAN device - Nokia :) So put Tik for your LAN.

P.S.: it is better to open ports manually, because with NAT-PMP protocol you can't control your own device traffic for Internet. And it's dangerous!
