I have been trying to set up port forwarding for a lazybone wifi device:

Connecting to it from Lan works, but trying to access it from the outside just gives: [B]Trying 84.208.XX4.173...[/B]

And nothing more happens, on the LAN i get:

[B]telnet 2000 Trying Connected to Escape character is '^]'.[/B]

I have set up:
Port Forwarding: DoorOpener outside port:6969 inside port:2000 ip:

Wireshark tells me that the lazy bone device starts pushing out arp requests for ip: as soon at it receives a initiating packet from the outside:

In the router log i see that the port is forwarded from 6969 to 2000. But somehow it seems the response is lost... – David Karlsson Jun 21 '14 at 11:51
Are you trying to use the outside IP from inside your LAN, or did you actually try it from an outside network? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Jun 21 '14 at 14:58
I tried using it from outside ie. via 4G. and also tried through a dynDns service... – David Karlsson Jun 21 '14 at 22:25

set ip dhcp 1 set sys printlvl 0 save

Setting these settings allow me to get responses from the device on the dynDns address. I figured the device was probably sending broadcasts asking for since this is a default address in it's setup and the setup of static IP was incomplete in some way.

Therefore I enabled DHCP as described in the wiFly manual, and behold it seems to work...
