Hello chaps, I ahve a client that has the EE Brightbox 2 and a new fiber to cablnet service.
Because I'd not port forwarded this router before I went to the EE website and read their guide.
The instructions were very comprehensive and i followed them to the letter.
There are two CCTV servers, I set oe to DHCP and rebooted then allowed the Brightbox to allocate an IP, I went into the router DHCP settings and reserved that IP and saved
I then went in and turned off the DHCP and allocated the server a device id of 201 i.e 192.168.1.201). I then restrted the CCTV server and went into the Brightbox DHCP and modified the reserved address accordingly so the reserved address was now 192.168.1.201.
I did one CCTV server first and then the other (201) to ensure I allocated the correct device against it's mac address. I then checked the basic settings and conected devices and both showed up correctly. To prevent any potential for IP conflicts I reduced the DHCP range from 2 - 199. saved and restarted the BB2.
Now I went into the NAT section and created my devices and allocated ports against my reserved IPs.
When I checked them not one single port reported as open. I left it for an hour and some ports were open and others not?
Any ideas or suggestions where I might have gone wrong? Or do you think there might be an issue with the router?
PS when i try to ping the ip address it always comes back 100% packet loss.
