    [Solved] Port Forward Problems

    Router: WRT54GL
    Firmware: Tomato 1.07
    Wan connection: DHCP (tried to change to static and it was non functional)

    Currently port forwarding does not work. You will see several set up in the screenshot attached. None of these are functional. I've tested with our desktop straight to the modem and the ports were open wide.

    No change if I turn QoS off, ports are still closed.

    Any suggestions?

    I cannot read the screen shot due to the $hitty picture quality restrictions of this website (hard drive space is now 35 cents a GIG...), but are you trying to forward the same port to different IP addresses ?

    Yes, I've got 3 machines that I'd like to run 17000 to..... I'll test an alternative now....

    ok, just changed my machine to port 22222 and still no good, testing through:


    here's a better pic of the forwarding:

    suggestions welcome!

    The router does not support duplicate definitions. You are forwarding ports 1000 and 17000 to multiple internal ip addresses. The router cannot send the same port to two different destinations. The inbound data packets would have to be duplicated to send them to multiple locations, and the router does not do this. Your rule for port 22222 should be valid and the port is probably forwared, but the torrent application is not programmed to answer a ping request, so the test website you are using thinks that it is not open.

    It would be a good idea to delete the default example rules.

    Has this highlighted a flaw in the firmware GUI?

    Yup, it appears that way. The 4th example rule is contrary to the first 3. Is that what you were talking about ?

    I'm having the exact same problem, tried removing the default entries without success. :(

    Ok, got to it this morning, it work great. Thanks for the help! I'm watching my QoS working as I type. Now all that's left to see is if the router stays up, dd-wrt died after a week...

    Tomato routers stay up like the Energizer Bunny on Viagra.
