Port Forwarding Not Working

Post by OoMaKiNg » Thu Nov 19, 2009 2:55 pm

My setup:

Comcast Motorola SBG900 Surfboard Gateway -----> OOMA hub -----> Computer.

My Problem:

Cannot get Port Forwarding to work with OOMA hub

Problem Solving Steps:

1. Remove OOMA Hub, port forwards fine: port 6112 - 6119
2. Put OOMA hub back in and attempt to add my IP address (from ipconfig) to the port forward page on oooma.setup.com. I cannot host games on BNET. Am I missing something?

I have those ports forwarded on my Motorola gateway/router and it works but it will not work when I add the HUB, My IP is different of course when plugged into the Comcast Gateway, 192.168.0.17 and on OOMA it is: 72.196.2.67 (something close to that). Any other ideas how to forward this port to my computer so I can play my games? :D

How are you letting the outside users know what your external IP address is?

I'm having a similar problem.
cable-> Surfboard --> ooma --> computer.

I set up port forwarding on the ooma as follows:
tcp&udp port 20-23 to 172.27.35.70 (which is the computer's IP)

I tested that The computer will accept ssh on the local 172. network.

I then went to whatismyip.org and found what my IP address is. When I ssh from my computer to that ipaddress I am unable to reach it.

To investigate further I added 172.27.35.70 to the ooma as a DMZ. I still cannot connect.

I am not attempting to portforward on the Surfboard.

One added piece of information. In addition to using whatismyip.org to check the ip I can also just look at the ooma device itself. it tells me the same (external) IP address as the MODEM. When I direct my browser to that address I get the ooma device web page (and not for example the surfboard). This tells me the ooma device is directly facing the internet and is not itself NATed by the surfboard.
