Port forwarding mystery
« on: July 12, 2017, 01:46:23 am »
Hello!

I'm new here and have some strange things afoot on my home network.

I have a Buffalo Airstation WXR-1900 DHP DS router connected to a fiber line. I've been running this device for about a year and a half and it's served well. Last week, out of the clear blue, the router started rejecting incoming connections to my file server. I could find no reason for it. Long story short, I wound up rebuilding the server and my desktop in an effort to get my domain back on the internet.

Tonight I finally cracked it by turning port forwarding for the ports in question *off*.

Does anybody have any idea as to why port forwarding for specific ports has to be turned off for this network to connect up?

I'm curious.

Thanks and it's good to be here.

Mark

Really? No one has a comment or speculation on what's going on with this router?
