Hello, I have recently purchased this amazing little router and successfully connected it to a VPN via the OPENVPN protocol. The issue I’m having is that I am connecting one device to it, a Helium Miner which must have port 44158 forwarded in order to properly function. I believe I have opened the port in the GL-ARs interphase however something is still triggering it to show port 44158 as “closed”. The vpn service I use provided me with a dedicated static IP. I wonder if you all would help me figure out what might be happening. My setup is as follows:
Main Modem —> Router 1 -----> 5-port switch —> GL-AR750S (NORDVPN connection with dedicated ip) —> Helium Miner .
Hi, thank you. Unfortunately that did not work for me. As you can see i have the port forwarded correctly but I feel like something is getting in the way. The only difference between that blog is that the person who wrote it uses wireguard protocol and I use openvpn. See screen below.
