Hello @fondoo

 

Welcome to the community!

 

When do you get the error?

Kindly provide a screenshot of the error message and the Port Forwarding page of the router.

Hi, Im having the same problem, I have Firmware Version V1.0.2.80_1.0.71 after successfully enabling the VPN Service with client access as "Auto", I am attempting to change this to "All sites on the Internet & Home Network".  Any attempt to select "All sites on the Internet & Home Network" and then click "Apply" returns this error: "Port conflicts with another tule." Screenshot below.


There are no port forwarding rules that contain port 12974.  So what is causing the conflict? How do I resolve it?

Try setting tap and tun to use different ports.  My R8500 is configured that way, and I didn't get that error when i tried making your change.
