XR300 Nat Loopback?

Hey guys. Recently my R7000 died and I wanted to get a new router with more performance for gaming and stuff. I need nat loopback and I don't see anything about nat loopback online for the XR300. I have gotten used to nat loopback and use it for a few services.

No there isn't a way to do this at the moment. What are you use cases may I ask? If it's helpful then it's something we could advocate for but I don't believe most gamers would use a feature like this and that is who the router is aimed at.

Sure. I run a few game servers for me and my friends. I usually code applications to use a public address so that I can test for a final product, aswell as pterodactyl panel. Some people who play games have their own servers for their friends and it is a lot easier to test and play without setting up any speical host file stuff. Some games themselves actually like nat loopback and so do some other applications.

Well i'll add it to our list of suggestions. I think it would be a cool feature to have although it might be somewhat niche. I can see it being useful for older or more niche titles though, also multiplayer emulation.

Sounds good, can't wait to try DumaOS on the XR300 when I get the money Smiley Happy
