5268AC all port forwarding. Tech unable to asssit
I have a 5268AC. I have been trying to open ports for VNC and streaming ports. I have 4 desktops hard wired. all used to work fine up until a year ago when all the VNC ports got blocked (40001-40004). I called tech support and they couldn't resolve it, so I gave up and switched to using 3899 RDP instead on 1 pc and then using VNC to connect to the other computers using local the ip's. 2 months ago, port 3899 got blocked. I called and after 45 minutes they were able to resolve it. this week, both of my streaming ports got blocked, 8888 and 32400. I called and was on the phone for about an hour. they tried everything and reset my gateway twice. they sent me another gateway thinking that may be the problem, no change, all VNC ports and streaming ports were blocked. Somehow 3899 was still open. after 90 minutes on the phone and several hard resets and support creating and adding the ports themselves using the PC name and the ip address, no go. they even unblocked all the ports and still nothing worked. My Dad had the same router. I tried it on his. 32400 and 3389 were open his, all others blocked.
