Model : TL-R470T+

Hardware Version : v6

Firmware Version : 6.0.0 Build 20170609 Rel.58938

ISP : TPG

I have an internet routable address block that I would like to use for the LAN - is there some way to disable NAT on the WAN port that is serving this block? I have a second interface that needs NAT.

Nope, the NAT feature cannot be disabled.

I know the device is based on a Linux platform with iptables - there is no technical reason why this feature couldn't be implemented.I'd even be content if you could still access the command line via Telnet and tweak it directly.

Is the telnet interface still accessible in firmware build 20170609

Before I updated the firmware to build 20170609 I was able to connect via Telnet. The latest firmware accepts the connection but closes it immediately. Is there some way to re-enable the telnet login capability?
