Hi team,

 

Has anyone had luck getting DDNS/NAT/Port Forwarding working with MyRepublic? I'd configured Router/Servers Portforwarding OK on Spark before moving house and changing ISP to MyRepublic. 

 

Main issue seems to be that the IP address I've been given looks like a private IP on the router status, DDNS reports a different one. 

 

I raised this in another thread and got told there was something other than CGNAT going on and I wasn't following forum rules.

 

TIA.

Well if you don't have a public IP you're not going to be able to port forward.

 

And I won't bother discussing port forwarding to CCTV equipment and why you should never do that because I already do that every other week when somebody posts that on here abd sound like a stuck record.

 

You should also never port forward to RDP either. This should never be exposed to the Internet.

We have a "Port forward to CCTV" post every week. Every week the replies are "unless you have a VPN don't do it".

 

The security risks are too high.

If only there was a robot that could reply to certain keywords and save Steve the trouble of doing it.....  Hey @peterreader, where would I find a robot?
