I am trying to forward ports from my router to my server, I am using the ZyXel USG 40 router.
When I access my server locally on my network it works. But, when I try to do it via my IP address it simply doesn’t work (it doesn’t respond).
Under Configuration -> NAT: I’ve added a new rule.
Incoming Interface: wan1
Original IP: any
Mapped IP: My server local IP.
Disabled the NAT Loopback.
Furthermore under Policy Control, I’ve added a new policy.
To: any (exl. ZyWall)
Destination: NAT entity created in previous step
Service: any (intent to change that when it works to only desired ports)
I don’t understand why this is not working?
You disabled NAT Loopback. This needs to be enabled in order to use your external IP address from within your network.
