Message 2 of 2



I have 

problem with Talktalk router


I need port 44158 open for bobcat miner to work properly , its connected with LAN cable so its givin me auto but i reserve it anyway and then i go on port forward to add rule for to open port 44158 but no luck so far , ive make few screenshots hopefully im missing something


PS - firewall it was on medium which is blocking NETBIOS and im not sure if that is related so i put firewall on low - allow all  and on  still says "closed"   Please help , thanks

That rule will never work because you have set an external host to the local IP address of the device. This field needs to be left at its default of *.


There is no need to change the firewall on the router at all.


This port forwarding rule works perfectly:-
