    From Grease@VERT/DARKMATT to All on Tue Feb 28 16:24:00 2023
    I don't know where to go after this, but here goes. I have a Deco m4 router.

    I've done the NAT PORT Forwarding to open Port 23. Internal IP is the Ip address of my machine. Internal port is 23.

    The external port is the one that is see in the Synchronet Port Scanner.
    In UFW (linux), I open port 23 (sudo ufw 23 allow)

    It still does not allow communication. Am I missing something? Is there a
    way to make it think it's 23 and it's reall 4023? My limited ability is
    not getting me far.

    Have you checked the UFW logs? Have you tried disabling UFW?

    The port or whatever is blocking entry. It does let traffic out, not in.

    I have not checked the logs.

    That would be a good start.

    I have tried disabling UFW. Same result.

    Any other firewalls or gateways in the way? Check their logs too or try disabling them.

    Am I missing something? Is there a
    way to make it think it's 23 and it's reall 4023? My limited ability is not getting me far.

    A port is simply a number, like an address extension, it doesn't do anything. Yes, you can have a network address translately (NAT) gateway expose a different public/WAN port than than the internal/private/LAN port you forward/map it to.
