    AC-5300 348.7

    I have enabled Virtual Server / Port forwarding and added a rule for:

    Service Name | Sorce IP | Port Range | Local IP | Local Port
    Device Name | WWW.whatsmyip.com| 8880 | 172.16.4.4 | 8880 | TCP

    and yet when I try to access this device remotely it isn't available on port 8880. An external port scan also shows that port 8880 is not open. I am having this problem with two AC-5300 in different homes. One on Comcast and the other on ATT. Port forwarding is either not working or I am missing a step.

    Suggestions welcome.

    Can you screenshot what you’ve actually put?

    A url is not valid.

    The source IP should be blank unless you want to limit the places you can use this port from on the Internet - ie it should not be your own WAN IP
