    Hi Guys,

    I recently bought this new Router, im very pleased with the performance however...

    I have a dedicated server in my house running several vps. One of them is my webserver where i do some webstuff on. Obviously id like this server to be visible from the outside. My previous router (Netgear Nighthawk r7500) I managed to forward all the ports (29, 22, 80, 443 etc) With this new precious router i cant seem to get it to work. I did manage to get port 80 running to the outside world but i cant get HTTPS to work.

    I have done some research and found that there are some utilities in my router that can cause this port to be in use already.
    • I have change the port AiCloud uses and also tried to turn it off.
    • Turned the firewall of
    • tried remapping the port from 443(lan) to 543(wan)

    Unfortunately no help.

    Do any of you guys have suggestions of what i can do to solve this issue? Im probably missing something small. I hope.

    Thanks!
    Wessel

    Not sure, but do any of the gaming-related features this router has, interfere here?

    Sorry, I don't have that model and I don't (ever) use those features. :(

    Guessing? Fast gamer, or something like that? :)

    OK. What firmware version are you running? Can you post a screen shot of your port forwarding page?

    EDIT: Are you using any VPNs?

    P.S. Don't disable the firewall.

    Alright, so i did some more testing. And when I leave the internal port blank it seems to be working. Ill give it some more time but it seems to be solved for now.

    Thanks guys.
