Having just started with Sparks new Wireless Lan instead of copper line and wishing to use a Port Forward utility I find I am unable to access anything other than a password change in the router. I use a program called PlanePlotter which charts aircraft over the world and in my case NZ. With no port forwarding utility I cannot get or give raw data which is essential to be linked in to the PlanePlotter system. Is there any way I could access the router NAT facility to do Port Forwarding? Any ideas anyone?

I think you will find a) you cannot access port forwarding on that router (could be wrong) but also your sitting behind CG-NAT so it wont work anyway.

DOH! There goes your MU status (and some our MLAT deocdes)

 

Likely going to have same trouble in near future with mine being the MU in Christchurch (PH) with 2D latest announcement that CG-NAT is coming.

If a Static is assigned, the BB side moves off CG-NAT. I am pretty sure port forwarding works then, but also vaguely, it wasnt that intuitive to save the setting I think.

I have also discovered that PiAware cannot connect to Flightaware and is thus down the drain along with PlanePlotter now that I am on Spark wireless Broadband.

You just need to ask Spark for a static IP. It will cost a little bit more.

Why did you move to wireless in the first place? Cheaper? Faster?

For your usecase, You will need to request a static ip. port forwarding will work after that.

 

 

 

Fill out this form, should be sorted on monday.

It's a heck of alot better on the b618, which has been our default modem for a fair while now..

Getting Wireless Broadband seemed the obvious solution given that it was faster and half the cost per month. However if I get a static address to solve this problem it will cost a little extra ….$15.00 a month apparently, but still no guarantee that I can install port forwarding (UDP 7942) Needs more investigation I think.

Port forwarding works fine with a static ip.

 

 

 

It's purely that wireless broadband doesnt have a public ip without it.

 

Port forwarding works on the B315 too, but it can be clunky to use.
