Port forwarding on Super Router

First Timer

Hi! I can't get port forwarding to work on my D-Link Super Router.


I made this simple setup: my Raspberry Pi (reserved local IP runs a simple server on port 8000. It responds perfectly from anywhere inside the local network by calling


My port forwarding rule for it is as on the screenshot.



With this config, I get "connection refused" every time I call http://{router's IP}:8000. says that the port is open, yet forwarding doesn't work as expected.


I tried to make it UDP or Both TCP/UDP, switching between PVC1 and PVC2, setting different internal and external ports, disabling firewall, enabling DMZ for - nothing makes it work.

You will get this if you try to make the connection from a device locally connected to your router to the internet and back in to the router's WAN IP address or a DDNS domain. This is because this is classed as loopback traffic & is blocked by all TalkTalk router's as they consider this a security risk.


Disconnect a phone from the WiFi & then try via 3/4G.

I am not employed by TalkTalk, I'm just a customer. If my post has fixed the issue, please mark it as the Best Answer.
