Re: [irlp-embedded] Embedded node burned out nic
- I guess I am failing to understand. The PK5001Z is a modem/router combined. It was the only router device in line. Ports were forwarded correctly, IRLP troubleshooter indicated all connectivity was OK. Yet, when connected to a reflector, I could hear the group but the group could not hear me nor could they detect a COS from me.I changed from port forwarding to DMZ and same thing. I tried with DMZ and port forwarding but same thing. So, given that setup, I don't understand what was wrong.The new setup, configured today was to bridge the PK5001Z and add the external router. Now, I do understand that with the external router, the PK5001Z would need to be bridged, and that's what I did. I never tried to run the external router with the PK5001Z without bridging.So, the new question is: Why won't the IRLP node work properly with just the PK5001Z?Tom NJ1K----- Original Message -----From: David Cameron (IRLP)Sent: Monday, October 07, 2013 6:55 PMSubject: Re: [irlp-embedded] Embedded node burned out nic
Well any time you are behind a router without the ports forwarded (your
modem was acting as a router as well) the port forwarding will not work
without putting the modem into bridge mode, or forwarding the ports
through that router as well.
The situation, known as double-NAT, is definitely not ideal, but can not
always be avoided.
