could someone help me out with an IPV6 rule? I dont really need anything fancy just enough to operate IPV6 but not leave me in anyway 'exposed' 

 

Currently having a play with an ER-4

 

TIA :) 

 

 

 

 

Have a look at the first page "Firewall Rules (applies to all IPv6 configurations)"

Just replaced the beloved ER-X with a new ER-4 after I got my fibre connection. Getting speeds of about 880Mb/s download with hardware offloading enabled, and about 800Mb/s with it disabled. ISP is Voyager.

 

Does this sound normal? As I see others here with screenshots of 900+ in their profiles. Don't get me wrong, this speed is great, just worried I may have configured something wrong.

 

 

The router is capable of it, your device may not be

Local iperf tests seem to indicate around 920-940Mb/s.

Cheers, I did have a squiz over it but it mentions to not blindly copy and paste, when I look at it, it goes right over the top of my head

 

I failed to mention that i'm also on Orcon (ipoe) and MM's config states its for 2degrees PPPOE - not sure if that makes a difference but interested in learning nonetheless

I recently bought an edgerouter ER-X SFP

 

 

 

im trying to port forward so i can access the front-end of my home webserver and nzbget but it seems not to work at all

 

 

 

 

 

 

i still can't seem to know why it won't work at all.

 

Im with vodafone, and when i was using my old ultrahub, port forwarding was never a problem.

 

 

 

any help would be good

I think the WAN interface is not the right one.  It needs to be the one named as the internet interface, which won't be eth0.  Had the same issue with setting up Plex and once I discovered that, bing, everything worked.

I'm thinking of installing an Edgerouter X into a system with Spark rural wireless broadband with currently a Huawei B618s-65d Spark stock modem / router / switch / WAP.

 

Several questions ... apologies if these are dumb newbie points:

 

1. What internet connection do I configure given the B618 will still be the LTE modem? DHCP or PPOE?

 

2. Do I connect the B618 WAN port to Eth0 once all set up, or can either WAN or LAN port do?

 

3. If I still want the B618 WAP to function, do I have to connect say Eth3 back to the B618 LAN?

 

4. Once all set up I'll be switching off thge B618 DHCP, firewall etc. etc leaving only the modem and WAP functional

 

Thanks & regards,

Want to thank Michaelmurfy for this tutorial post. A combination of the steps here and a patient Slingshot tech support person has me up and running with this setup.
