So I have successfully installed my SN on a dedicated Win10x64Pro Pc. The dashboard is accessible, but show offline. I have read and followed the info on how to set up port forwarding, so the Windows firewall should be good to go. However, our LAN is behind two routers:
ZTE612 fibre access point, which is a NAT router and DHCP server. This is owned by the ISP, but I do have access to it and set up port forwarding to my Linksys X3000 wifi router’s WAN IP. On this I have set up forwarding to the PC. The X3000 is my gateway and DHCP server. The PC has a reserved DHCP address. When I run the port forwarding tester it shows the port as closed. Debug logging on the ZTE shows nothing, but I don’t know whether that might be normal behaviour. The incoming connections log on the X3000 shows nothing incoming at all.
The physical layout: WAN - FON - X3000 - LAN
I tried turning off firewalls on PC and X3000, but no change. I also cannot access the dashboard from my laptop, which is strange, as I had a Burstcoin miner running on it and never had a problem getting to its web page. I also set up an incoming firewall rule on the SN PC for TCP port 14002 and turned off the firewall on the laptop. With the firewall on I get timeout, with fw off I get “connection refused”.
I have considered making the ZTE our gateway, but I am worried that one day the ISP will replace it and then I will have a bigger problem.
One thing appears strange to me: the IP address that the ZTE shows as being its public address does not correspond to what online tools show as my public address.
Thanks for any help people can provide here.
