I've just moved to Infinity (new phone line) on Friday, I can see port 161 and 4567 are open on the BT Home Hub 3 Model B*, a bit of checking and theres apparently a work around forwarding it to an unused IP to effectivley close (link below).
Works fine for 4567 but can't get it to work with 161 so I'm back to my old Draytek 2910** but restricted to around 30Mbit as a result.
I'm confident that I've done as instructed but can't find any other reports of the failure (perhaps a new software version closing the workaround?).
Before I dig deep for a replacement router sooner rather than later (the HH is poor even ignoring 161 issues but money is tight), are ther any new users with similar issues.......or the same software version that want to shout PEBKAC/User error?
I realise some might say a bit of a tin foil hat issue, but I don't want them sniffing inside my LAN as they have done with others in the past, I don't hold BT security in high regard either.
