So far the service has been great with NowNZ, had my SNR rates optimised on the exchange end which improved sync rates by nearly 4mb.

I'm having a rather weird issue where people can't ping me externally and no one can join games which require ports to be opened (if im hosting).

This didn't happen on Telecom and only started after switching to NowNZ about 2 weeks ago.

The only thing i can think of is they have a limited number of IP's so they are using NAT so they don't have to issue unique ips?

I can't exactly call the helpdesk tomorrow as its closed and this is really starting to get on my nerve.

No equipment or pc changes have occurred since it was previously working with Telecom.


Have set my PC as DMZ and opened ports but no one can connect. People can't even ping my IP.

Definitely being rejected on the ISP side. It's not even getting to my IP.

Just had a reply on Facebook:


Hi Ben, addresses are filtered (not NAT) unless a publicly addresses is requested. I'll get the team to sort and contact once it's ready.


So they have an internal subnet of private ips which 99% of customers are put on. I guess this is to stop certain attacks etc. Requested a public, non filtered IP and everything is sweet now.
