Internal Ending Port DISABLED!!!!! NightHawk X6S

Disabled.JPG

I'm trying to port foward a Team speak server but i can't since the inernal ending port box is diabled. I have tried chrome, IE, firefox, opera and even my phone browsers. Anyone have some solid advance or guidance?

   Not an actual model number.  I'll assume "R7900P".  Firmware version?

   I know nothing except what's in the R7900P User Manual, and that

makes little sense:

      External Port Range and External Port Range.
      Internal Starting Port and Internal Ending Port.

   If the firmware is as confused as the documentation, then almost
anything might be possible.  Around here (D7000, V1.0.1.64_1.0.1), where
this stuff (almost) works properly, the "Add Custom Service"/"Ports -
Custom Services" form uses the following scheme:

Service Name                    [        ]
Service Type                    { TCP/UDP | TCP | UDP }
Starting Port                   (Apparently an error?)
External port range             [        ]
(Specify port numbers and/or port ranges split by commas ,example:30,50-60,65500-65510)
[X] Use the same port range for Internal port
Internal port range             [        ]
(Specify port numbers and/or port ranges split by commas ,example:30,50-60,65500-65510)
Server IP Address               [    ].[    ].[    ].[    ]

   My memory is poor, but it looks as if at one time, the user was
expected to specify starting and ending ports (two values in two boxes),
but now can specify any combination of port numbers and/or port-number
ranges (in one box).  On my "Ports - Custom Services" page, the
"Starting Port" text is still there, but there's no box for its value.
Yet another sign of Netgear firmware quality, I'd guess.

> Anyone have some solid advance or guidance?

   Not I, but, knowing nothing, I'd see if some newer (or older)
firmware version improves this form.  I'd also try resetting the router,
and reconfiguring it manually.  I can imagine that some combination of
old-style settings and a new-style form might confuse something.

   You might try putting some kind of port number/range spec into
whatever box(es) your form provides, and see what comes out in the
resulting "Port Forwarding" table.

   Ah.  _Now_ the in-line picture appears.  Most of my earlier
speculation probably misses the mark.

   Your form seems to use the old start-end scheme.  In that scheme,
specifying the External Starting and Ending ports defines the range.
Then, with the range determined, only the Internal Starting port is
needed to determine the Internal ports.

   You don't get to choose four parameters independently, only three.

No matter what i put into the "internal Starting Port" i will still get this error. Even if i check the box "Use the same port range for internal port"

Well, a range of 1024...65535 are 64511 ports ... if starting from 30033 the end port would be on 94544 what is not possible for obvious reasons. Try a smaller range. In my opinion, the input field for the upper end is obsolete, it's pure math only, I would assume the UI can do the math in a correct way, permitting the amount of ports and start of the range permitting.

 

The R9000 does it a little bit different FWIW:

   Why not say that in the first place?  The range "30033-30033" is the
same as the single value "30033".

   Your saying that you "want to open <any_port>" is a little scary.  In
my experience, people who talk about ports being "open" often don't
understand the problem.  A port looks "closed" when there's no server
program (or device) listening at that port.  All the port forwarding in
the world won't help you if, at the end of the line, no one is listening
at that port number.

   If you really know what you're doing, and you intend to fix the LAN
address of your server system, and you will be running some kind of
server which will be listening at that port, then feel free to ignore my
anxiety.

To forward the port 30030 to the LAN port 30030 (

External Starting Port 30030
Internal Starting Port 30030

 

or

 

External Starting Port 30030
External Ending Port 30030
Internal Starting Port 30030

 

Nothing to bother about the end port anyway. As I said before: If there is a range of ports, the number of ports on the LAN must be the same as on the WAN - Internal Ending Port can (and I assume will) be calculated.
