Disabled everything in WAN -> NAT Passthrough.

Also added:

modprobe -r nf_nat_ftp
modprobe -r nf_conntrack_ftp

to /jffs/scripts/firewall-start

3. In Terminal
nvram set vts_ftpport=0
nvram commit

No drawbacks/errors/speed issues with Alexa/IOT and other stuff so far. My VOIP-Phone is also working as intended.

Update: 03.03.21
VoWifi on Xiaomi is not working correctly
