    Default Port Forwarding And UFB

    Hi there, I'm having a lot of trouble trying to port forward after getting a fiber connection. My Lan IP is static and set as DMZ, the port is forwarded and all firewalls and anti virus on my pc are disabled.... And yet the port remains closed, or at least filtered and all I can think of now is the ONT supplied for the fiber connecting is interfering. Any ideas would me much appreciated.

    What router are you using ?

    The ONT generally wont have anything to do with it. If you are trying to use the "spare" ports in the ONT that will be your problems as most of them are actually disabled.

    Who's your ISP?
    Some use cg-nat so you don't actually have a public IP address so no way to get accesss from the Internet.
    You need to buy a static ip.

    On some of the ISP supplied routers, they simply cannot forward some ports , even DMZ wont 'forward' those particular ports .
    Perhaps due to ISP's custom firmware in some routers
    Not an issue for 99% of home users, so those ISP's dont care .

    It's not your ONT. ONT doesn't work that way.
    As others have mentioned, it's possibly you're on a private IP using CG-NAT (Say, like 2talk do), your router firmware is having issues, or you've not configured it correctly.

    If you've DMZ'd it you shouldn't have to port-forward, so post your router make / model, along with who your ISP / Plan is, and we can give you a hand.

    Bigpipe use cgnat so you would need to purchase a static ip from them for $45.

    Thanks, I was hoping to be able to get away without having to spend $45 bucks but oh well. Especially weird is that I asked them about it a while go and they never even bothered to mention it.

    $45 one off for a Static IP is very cheap from BigPipe. A lot of other providers will charge a lot more, or have an ongoing cost ($5 or $10 a month or something)

    Yea agree, one off $45 is nothing really, when others charge an ongoing monthly fee.
