NAT Port Forwarding: Connection Refused

By deepspace ·

Here is small suggestion in configuring NAT Port Forwarding:

If you place "space caracter" between two words in Comment box, port will NOT be forwarded anymore.

Private IP Type Port Comment
----------------------------------------------------- TCP 5900 Ultra_VNC_(will_do) TCP 5900 Ultra VNC (will NOT)

Very strange behavior in many routers. There is usualy no warning about this.

I have spent few days to find it out.

Suggestion: just a line in NAT configurating documet would be enough, like:
"Do not ever place spaces in firewall Comment line."

Good Luck, novatehnika
