Model :

Hardware Version : TL-WR840N v5 00000005

Firmware Version : 0.9.1 3.16 v0001.0 Build 170608 Rel.58696n

ISP :

Hi, i need to set up my router to forward outside requests to my apache local pc server. I have to use old TP-link model WR542G without problems. The forwarding works perfect. Now, with WR840N i have no luck. I set virtual server to forward ip and port 8080. Set DHCP to reserve my MAC address to IP. What is the difference between 2 routers, and why with the same settings, the new wont work :(

Have you set the correct IP Address/ Service Port / Internal Port in Virtual Server?
Then you will make sure the status is enabled.

As I said, i use this apache server for many years, i have no problem to set a forwarding with many other routers, but this new device has some new features, that block outside IP access to server. Apache is set to listen on 8080, localhost:8080 and http://127.0.0.1:8080/ works perfect. When i try with old router, everything is fine. This are the new router settings:

In my opinion, your settings is correct. And I have found that there are new firmware for 840_v5 , maybe it have fixed this issue.
If this issue still persists in the same way.
Maybe you need contact tplink technical support.

I just update to last Firmware. Doesnt help. Tp-link support is useless. I write 2 times. No help at all.
