BGW320 - Port Forwarding with IP Passthrough to WAN of ASUS
Thank you in advance for any help!
We have an ASUS RT-AX82U that handles all routing. It requires DDNS for the purpose of port forwarding access to the DVR/Security cameras.
We recently received the otherworldly BGW320 and had AT&T enable IP passthrough to the ASUS. However the connection was to the LAN port of the ASUS at the time, not WAN. Moving it to the WAN port does not activate the WAN port/internet status. This lack of wan activation disables the DDNS feature.
I tried setting up the port forwarding via NAT/Gaming on BGW but there is no option to specify an external port (just internal range). Specifying internal ports only, did not work and I'd prefer not to make any changes to the DVR system itself.
If we reach out to AT&T to reset the IP Passthrough while it's plugged into the ASUS Wan port, is that going to work? I just don't understand how they are designating the passthrough device since it's behind the scenes (they do not use the actual IP Passthrough page as this never worked). It appears they simple choose it based on BGW LAN port it's plugged into/MAC address.
From what I understand, IP Passthrough should simply forward the Public address to the ASUS node (activating WAN on ASUS?)
If WAN activation is not possible, is there another way to specify port forwarding ports?
The DVR has three services: Server (8000->8000), Media (1080->554), HTTP (8008->80) ... all going to DVR node (one IP address).
I'm really hoping the resident forum guru can assist - I have read countless threads of yours @JefferMC
Appreciate any assistance you or anyone can provide!!
