    NAT Port Forwarding: Connection Refused

    Locked

    by deepspace ·

    Hi!

    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
    —————————————————–
    192.168.0.100 TCP 5900 Ultra_VNC_(will_do)
    192.168.0.100 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

    – Stupid Firewall.
