    Thanks for this nice firmware. I've got one request for one of the next releases. Is it possible to make more port forwarding form fields in the webinterface?

    I used the wifibox firmware until one week ago and there are more form fields included than in the standard firmware.

    Upnp

    To ch0815

    Thanks for you reply, my idea is to use the Upnp server for port assigment, most programs are getting ready for Upnp support.

    I don't know if this answers your question, but I think the Upnp server is much more scaleable (having 1..?? users) and the fixed fields are not.

    Maybe thats okay for Windows PCs but we use here some Linux and Mac machines and i don't know how to set up Upnp on this computers.
    Most of them are servers with static ports and have to be accessible all the time. Next problem, i don't have root access to change something. :eek:

    The limitations of port forwarding.

    At this moment the firmware 4.20.9 has limitions for port forwarding.

    They are:
    FORWARDING_NUM 10
    PORT_TRIGGER_NUM 10

    As you can see, forwarding has a limitation of 10 ports, this means a maximum of about 5 users, if you are using ms-messenger for example.

    The nvram variable forward_port is filled with the forwarding table, for this go to telnet and type:
    nvram get forward_port

    you will get a list (example):
    Share:eek:n:both:1010:1010>152 share2:eek:n:both:1022:1022>153 Share:eek:n:both:1010:1010>152 share2:eek:n:both:1022:1022>153 Share:eek:n:both:1010:1010>152 share2:eek:n:both:1022:1022>153 Share:eek:n:both:1010:1010>152 share2:eek:n:both:1022:1022>153 share:eek:n:both:222:222>154 SDDSS:eek:n:both:222:222>155

    One option would by to edit this list, or place it as a script in rc_startup.

    greetings,
    Jchuit.

    You will get a p-message about when the beta build is ready and compiled.
