Ralphalot: Hello to all that have had (are having) issues with the port forwarding...
I too moved to Slingshots VDSL today and was disappointed that I couldn't forward ports 80 and 443 etc and was wondering if anyone had heard anything more about this update?

For now I'm using the DMZ option which I'm ok with for now as I run TMG.


Fairly certian Slingshot will be using TR-069 for management.

No way would they use simple HTTP/HTTPS for management. You probably can't forward those ports because they are reserved for services on the router. Have a look in the 'Management' section and you will see all the services there like HTTP/S, Telnet, SSH, FTP etc. Change the HTTP and HTTPS ports to something non-standard and you then forwarding them to internal servers should be possible.

After about 10 days modem started freezing 2-3 times/day so I turned off logging as some here have suggested - lockups seem to have disappeared but an interesting side affect was that WIFI performance immediately increased by about 6 - 7 Mb/s!

Anyone know if this thing is capable of any bridge modes?

I already have a competent router. Don't really have patience for some wannabe router that doesn't really work.

Rebooting once an hour with the logging turned off...still awaiting a replacement router..now we are totally out of the DLM

Wonder if I can reject the router under the CGA?

I think we'd have pretty good grounds under the Consumers Guarantee Act as it states a product must be fit for the purpose in which it was sold / intended. I have been thinking of taking this road myself.

I have web and mailservers which i haven't been able operate properly since 14th December even using the DMZ. Hackers attack my servers and i cant do a thing to stop them as all inbound connections come from my own external IP address which in turn causes my mailservers to block my own damn external IP. (Thinking it's hackers)

Maybe all of us who have these router issues should keep calling slingshot and if they get enough pressure they might actually do something. I've been calling them pretty much weekly but keep getting the same old "The new firmware is in testing" speal and they wont release it until it's fully tested.

I don't seem to be experiencing the "lock up" problems i just need the damn port forwarding to work!

Sorry, but if you are running web and mail servers you really shouldnt expect your ISP supplied router to be up to spec to protect them. Get a Mikrotik and bridge a DV130 to it.

I do expect that when I have one device plugged in with a network cable the router does not fall over every hour!

Is there a way to find out out what DLM profile you are on with this modem?

Can anyone help with my FTP set up? Until I got this modem everything was working fine, I've set up port forwarding and all but every time I try to test the FTP connection I keep getting "Server returned unroutable private IP address in PASV reply". I'm fairly well versed in this kind of stuff but I'm certainly not an advanced user, and everything I have tried has given the same result as above. I'd appreciate any help anyone could give me.

You just need to use a non-standard port.
Have a look in 'Management' then 'Access Controls' then 'Remote Access Control List'

The router catches traffic on all those ports. You can't change them so you will have to use a non-standard port to connect to your FTP server.

I've done that using port 1701, still gives the same "Server returned unroutable private IP address in PASV reply" response. Any other ideas?

that reads, as your ftp server is handing out the PASV response, with a private ip. this would indicate a miss configuration in the server itself.. although i would have expected it to be a little more smart about it.
