Help us test new feature: "auto add router NAT rule"
The v1.65 release has a new feature. If you enable, it will attempt to install the necessary NAT rule on your firewall / router to open port 8073 (or other) automatically. This will hopefully save a lot of new Kiwi owners the hassle and complexity of figuring out how to get into their router and add the rule manually. Of course this is more for the residential/consumer owner and not for controlled-network corporate/business environments.
Not all routers have the necessary UPnP protocol support. To help us understand how often this solution works please give it a try and let us know if it works for you. Proceed as follows.
1. Wait for v1.65 to be installed or restart your Kiwi to force an install.
2. On your router manually delete the NAT rule you initially added to open the port to the Internet.
3. Go the the Network tab on the admin page and change the "auto add NAT rule" option from "no" to "yes".
4. Press the cyan-colored "server restart" button when it appears.
5. When the admin page reloads go back to the Network tab and check the status displayed after the color-coded message "Automatic add of NAT rule on firewall / router:"
6. It should be one of
Green - "succeeded" (NAT1)
Yellow - "rule already exists" (NAT3)
Orange - "no device found" (NAT2)
Red - "command failed" (NAT4)
nothing is displayed if "auto add" button is set to "no" (NAT0)
7. A status code (NAT1, NAT2, ...) will be displayed on sdr.hu as well if your Kiwi is publicly available.
8. Let us know your result and the model of your router.
9. If you got green "succeeded" then on your router check that the NAT rule was automatically added and that Internet connections can be made.
10. If any other status appears then manually put back the NAT rule on your router.
11. There is a longer message displayed in the Kiwi log (see admin Log tab) detailing the communications with your router.
Thanks for helping us with this testing.
