Virtual server / port forwarding / DMZ is not working at all
I'd bought an Archer VR400 v3 yesterday, and trying to expose a port on my local machine to the internet, but it never worked; here is summary of my situation:
- My local machine is listening on port 4000
- It is accessible from other nodes in the local network.
- I'd setup virtual server on tp-link modem to listen 4000:4000 IP my local machine
Now I expect 192.168.1.1:4000 to be open and responds from local machine, but it is not; the only thing I get is connection refused.
the packet doesn't even reach the local machine, modem doesn't allow and drop connection.
I'd tried to setup on different ports, even changed local management port on modem from 80 to other ports, and tried to use port 80 for my own use-case but then port 80 becomes "connection refused". I tried DMZ that local machine, didn't work; tried port forwarding, didn't work;
The problem is any port other than the tp-link local management console is blocked, modem drops the connection, no matter what. I'd tried turning off the SPI firewall, and it didn't change anything as well.
I have IP static and my modem can be viewed remotely, so if it helps, DM me to give you the credentials to see it for yourself
