1:1 nat
« on: February 09, 2018, 05:03:16 am »
Hi!

Theres no way I can make something like a 1:1 nat direectly to the server? Im having the issue, that the software I install binds to the LAN IP. If I try to rebind it to the public IP, it wont connect.

I enabled NAT Reflection for 1:1 under settings - advanced - NAT/FIREWALL

Is there anything I can do about it? It binds to local IP, but not to the external IP.

Thanks again, the forums has been a great place for me to get help, so I will give it another shot :)

You can't bind a service to an IP address the system doesn't hold on any of its network interfaces, that's just how TCP/IP works.
