I have a Zyxel P-661HW-D1 modem/router with several port forwards that works on the WAN interface. I'd like to make them work for the LAN interface as well, like I'm used to.
I updated the firmware to the last version I found (V3.40(AHQ.4) | 07/08/2009) and I activated the nat loopback option from the command line, that should enable the desired behaviour. The loopback seems to be active after rebooting the router as well, as I can get this response from the CLI:
ras> ip nat loopback NAT loopback: on ras>
Still, the port forwards don't work inside the LAN.
E.g. I have a server on
192.168.1.200:5000 that I can't reach by
192.168.1.1:5000 (router's LAN ip) nor by
Such server is only reachable by
<WAN IP>:5000 from a machine that is outside the LAN.
