I have a query relating to port forwarding on my Balance 30.
As an example say I want to forward inbound traffic on WAN2 for my <Public IP> on port 7890 to a PC on my private network <Private IP> on the same port (7890).
So this is what I have configured.
Inbound Firewall Rule (I have my default inbound firewall rule set to Deny)
Source IP/Port: Any/Any
Destination IP/Port: <Private IP>/7890
Port Forwarding Rule
IP Protocol: TCP
Inbound IP addresses: WAN2 (<Public IP>)
Server IP Address: <Private IP>
This all works fine but I have some questions…
I assume I need both the inbound firewall rule and the port forwarding rule for this to work?
If I wanted to accept a connection on <Public IP> port 7890 but forward that to <Private IP> port 1234 (i.e. a different port) how would I configure that?
Another thing I noticed that once an inbound session is established (and visible in the Status / Active Sessions / Inbound table) how can I terminate that session? If I remove or disable the above rules this has no effect on established sessions. Surely there should be a way to terminate an active session from the GUI?
