NVG589 port forwarding/IP passthrough don't work
I've had terrible service from UVerse so toay a tech showed up and replaced my gateway with a brand new NVG589.
I run a linux box with a web-server on a fixed ip address 192.168.1.4 so I used the Firewall's NAT/Gaming section to add a route. after struggling with that for a while, I abandoned the effort and decided to just set the router in passthrough mode such that all incoming traffic will be redirected to my linux server.
so the Allocation Mode is set to Passthrough, the Passthrough Mode is DHCPS-fixed the linux box IPv4 address shows up on the list so I selected it and the MAC address was entered into the box, and I clicked Save
when I try to connect on port 22 via the Broadband IPv4 Address I get a Network Unreachable error. if I connect to the same port using the internal address the linux server responds.
is there something I'm failing to configure? how can I make this work?
