Port Forwarding - Devices not showing up
This has been discussed before in this forum - and there were claims that it was fixed - but it's happening to me, too.
I want to set up a port forwarding rule to a machine on my internal network. It is a hard-wired machine with a statically assigned address (non DHCP). But this machine does NOT show up as a device in my XFI device list, therefore, I cannot add a port forwarding rule to it.
I have several devices just like it - configured the same way - and sometimes they show up in the software, and sometimes they don't. Right now the device in question is on the network and activley talking to the outside (i.e. through the router) - so it is blearingly obvious that the router can physically communicate with the device. It IS an IPv4 device.
This is not a "question" on my side - THIS IS A BUG IN YOUR SOFTWARE.
And yes, I have tried rebooting my router. But I CANNOT just reboot my router every time I hit a problem like this!!
1. Is there any known work around for this problem?
2. Is there an open report that this is an outstanding bug that effects multiple people?
3. Ant DECENT port forwarding software would let the user just MANUALLY specify an IP address (not requiring it to show up on the routers list of devices) - it would also let you specify different source and destination ports, while I'm at it.
SO - any help???
