Port forwards not working unless gateway is set as default
« on: February 07, 2018, 10:16:15 am »
I have a WAN and OPT1 interface, I have set up a gateway group with OPT1 as tier 1 and WAN as tier 2, under gateways, OPT1 is the default.

I have edited the default allow LAN to any rule to include the failover gateway.

I have a port forward on the WAN connection but the port forward seems to only work when I set WAN as the default gateway, what am I doing wrong?

Interested in this.

How is the port forward configured in WAN? if WAN only has the port forward configured, it makes sense that it only works when WAN is configured as default gateway, right? I have two WAN's and have set up the same port forward in both. So try to replicate the rule on both interfaces? or maybe I'm not understanding the problem right.

You can accept connections and port forward into either. reply-to will work its magic.

OP gave no information regarding the port forward itself, so...
