My WAN IP seen on no-IP is the same as the one on the “Open Port Check Tool”. I changed the config file as hostname:28967 and this is my port forwarding settings in the router. I am not an advanced tech guy so I am trying to understand first and then act as you guys say. I appreciate. Tool says the port is closed.
No-ip of course will show the same IP as on yougetsignal. You need to open a Status page on your router to see a WAN IP (the IP from your ISP). You posted a port forwarding rule and it looks correct.
But the main point - if the WAN IP is different from your public IP, this is mean that your ISP placed you behind their NAT and your port forwarding rule will not work.
call to your ISP and ask for public IPv4, it could be dynamic, but must be a public (it will match the IP on yougetsignal). You can say that you need to have an access to your security IP cam from anywhere to do not explain Storj to ISP staff;
switch to other ISP who offer a public IP;
use VPN services with port forwarding option such as portmap.io, ngrok, PIA, AirVPN, PureVPN, etc.
I changed my mind and requested a static IP. Now WAN IP and External IP are the same. However; It seems the port is still closed. I called again ISP. They checked my router and they say the port is open for my security cam. But the tool says otherwise.
Make sure that your DDNS hostname is updated to the new IP. Or you can specify the static IP instead of DDNS hostname in the "C:\Program Files\Storj\Storage Node\config.yaml". If you do this, please save the config with menu File - Save (if you use a recommended Notepad++ editor, it will request administrators rights, you should confirm and repeat the saving), and restart your storagenode service either from the Services applet or from the elevated PowerShell:
And also make sure that you have added firewall rules for both - TCP 28967 and UDP 28967 ports (in Windows Firewall they should be added as a two separate rules - for TCP and UDP to the inbound section only).
