Port Triggering Problem

    I am using Tomato 1.00.0905 on my WRT54GS (not sure of the version, but it's older and Tomato shows 30MB of memory - how do you find the version number?). I just changed over from HyperWRT since it is kind of out-dated. With Tomato, I cannot get the port triggering to work. I entered the port triggering settings the same as I had in HyperWRT, but they do not work in Tomato. I've entered the settings, rebooted the router, and checked to make sure the settings were still present (they were). Everything seems to be entered correctly, but the ports are not opened when tested. I'm sure this is a pretty dumb question, but thanks anyway :).

    Just to clarify and so we are on the same page. Port triggering is so an application thats sits on the lan can work properly once it attempts to make an outbound connection. The ports just dont sit open, they stay closed until the router sees traffic headed out on the triggering ports, once it does, it dynamically opens the triggered ports so the inbound traffic can get to the application in question. It sounds from your question that you are looking for port forwarding.

    Yeah, I know what it does and would like to use the port triggering for this program. I used triggered ports under hyperWRT with no problem. Using the same settings under Tomato, the application does not get an open port once it tries to connect. Thanks.

    Well thats good thats cleared up, how are you testing to see if the ports are open?

    Heh, user error :). The program says it only needs 1 port open. However, if I put in a range of 3 ports in the triggered port range (one on either side of actual port), the triggered ports work.

    Nice, glad it all worked out.
