Port Forwarding for Nighthawk AC3200 wifi modem router model c7500 not working

Hi, 

 

I just purchased this new modem/router combo and want to port forward to my xbox one. My fianl goal is to use the Onecast to remote control my xbox with outside network. I already use DynDNS to have my static IP address. I set up the special port number in the port forwarding section in the router's website. But when I check the port it always not open for my ip address. Is there anyone could give me some hint how to solve this? I also try DMZ and still no results.

What is the IP address of the XBOX One?  What port(s) do you need to forward?  Also, DynDNS does not give you a static IP, but rather gives you a name url that is "static" and forwards to whatever your current IP is assuming it's set up properly.    What did you use to check if port is open or not?

I asign my xbox to 192.168.0.5. According to Onecast website, they mentioned if I want to use remote control,  I need to forward 5050 (UDP) and 49000-65000 (BOTH), which I succesfully setup in my router website. I use the IP address from the DynDNS website to check if the port is open or not, after the host name in the detail column.
