Unable To Port Forward with the DG8041W

"Conflict with internal service port" trying to port forward 80/443.  DMZ doesn't seem to work (when configured, traffic to those ports doesn't reach the DMZ).

 

I notice similar posts to this over a long period of time.  Is this fixed / ever going to be?  Seems likely to be straightforward to add a router config option to set the service ports.  Is the only fix to use a different router?  In which case, do I need a modem solution from TT to enable this?

Morning,

 

Thanks @KeithFrench

 

Would you like us to send a different router?

 

Thanks

Hi @eLiam 

 

This is a known firmware issue I reported to TalkTalk some time ago. Currently, you have two options, use a different external port for each, but then that port will need specifying in the URL used by anyone trying to access your web server. The other option is to ask TalkTalk if they will be prepared to swap it for the Sagemcom hub that does not suffer this problem.
