Or is the problem that your router requires internal port be the same as the external port?

comment How do I make sudo preserve my environment variables?
Try changing an unimportant setting like editor or passprompt to see if you have the correct file. Or use strace, dtrace, truss, or similar and see what files it opens.

comment How to convert from day of year and year to a date YYYYMMDD?
Yes, but not typeset IIRC. All others have typeset. If dash had typeset too, I would have used that in the example.

IIRC local isn't specified by POSIX, but absolutely, if using ksh has typeset, zsh has local, and zsh has declare IIRC. I think typeset works in all 3, but doesn't work in ash/dash. I do tend to underuse ksh-style for. Thanks for the thoughts.

That's an awesome solution. GNU date only, but so much shorter.
