I’m running apple Messages.app in 10.10.3 behind a Peplink Balance One firmware 6.1.2. Under Inbound Access/Port Forwarding I have a few ports forwarded, but I also have UPnP and NAT-PMP both Enabled.
When I run the Connection Doctor test in Messages.app (Video menu, Connection Doctor, Choose Show:Network Status), it shows me that I have “Router Type: Port Restricted” A friend who is not behind a Peplink router tests it and it shows him “Router Type: Full Cone”
My questions are:
- Are there any known issues with PepLink’s handing of NAT-PMP that could cause this?
- Are there any known issues with Apple’s implementation that could cause this?
- Any other ideas? (For example, perhaps my Port Forwarding settings are accidentally blocking a critical port?)
