Port Forwarding rules now not working

Hi, 

I've set up several port forwarding rules some weeks ago so that I can view some remote CCTV cameras. However, it now seems (last Friday) that the ports are no longer responding.

Any ideas? I have the V2 Superhub.

Cheers.

Re: Port Forwarding rules now not working

hiya @Unhappy_Hammer if you remove the rules/reset the router and re-add does it work ok?, also does it work on a local connection when accessing from your home PC/laptop?..

Re: Port Forwarding rules now not working

Have you tried disabling the firewall?

Failing that, it might be worth pin-hole resetting your SH.

Re: Port Forwarding rules now not working

I'm testing the ports on my PC server which is locally connected.

Yep, tried disabling the firewall.

Also, I've pulled the power on the SH several times, is this the same a pin hole reset?

Re: Port Forwarding rules now not working

A pin-hole reset would reset your SH to the factory default settings. You'd have to customise it again (if you did before, that is).

Are you able to ping the port by any chance? From the PC, run Command Prompt, and type 'ping [theipaddress:0000]'. Replace 0000 with the port you've set the rule up for.

Re: Port Forwarding rules now not working

OK, give pin-hole resetting the SH a go. Make sure you hold the pin in for around 5-10 seconds. Let us know how it goes.

Feel free to drop me  a PM if you need assistance.
