Bt Infinity With Hh3

Question

Had a problem today which hasnt happened before...

Res customer on HH3 with BT infinity. All seems to work fine.

Installed SW Dvr which was fine locally, dyndns working well from Dvr pov (I.E passwords and login correct). Dyndns site showing correct public ip.

Opened up relevent ports on hh. Upnp disabled. Set ip to static. Rebooted all.

Just cant seem to show ports open externally....


So, I've decided to take my work back underground.... to stop it falling into the wrong hands

Look on the bright side. At least no one will be hacking the DVR :)

Issue is that the Dvr can't be accessed externally...

im on fibre with hh3, no issues, so i doubt its with the hh3.

 

I know thats not of much help, but reckon bt have sorted out the PF issues as the last few ive done have been ok, couple of years ago, they were a mare at times.

That sounds like a crossword clue...

I did read anout Nat loopback issues meaning that you couldnt uee a dyn address internally. Ffs how lame!

But the issue remains even when I tried on 3G.

Another site suggest a true static Ip outside the BT dhcp range... But not sure if the hub would allow forwarding to an arbitrary ip?? I only read that afterwards. At least the site is only 2 min away and im going back in a week anyway.

Im on infinity but use a different router, same white infinity box though.

Interestingly firmware on the hh is only a week old...

Port Scanner, if it fails it's probably still a firewall issue?

Try a DMZ, to prove this.

Unlikely but ports can be blocked by ISP.

Surely if BT were blocking 9000 it would be well known? Tried external port scan, bt hh itself claims firewall automatically exempts port forwards...

Thought they were black

Hh is black, vdsl modem is white. As from hh5 the two are combined... (hh5 = hh4 with onboard vdsl)

The BT hubs can be done.

Took me a while the first time.

Don't assign a local static IP to the DVR.

Use DHCP so the DVR appears in the connected device list.

Add it as a saved device and reserve its IP and Mac address.

Create the port rules and then assign them to she DVR which is now in the list of connected devices .

Test and done.

That's exactly what I did do though. This is my first with infinity AND HH - my other customers ditched the HH bit when they upgraded. Last two I did on VDSL were netgear and Fritzbox, no issues. Have done ADSL HHs before many a time... Other (BT BB) forum advice is NOT to use an address within DHCP scope, set it as actual static at the device.

 

Oh dear... Just thinking, nothing to do with homeplugs messing about with the presented MAC is it....

ive set em up on hh3 before so id say its setup on the hh.

ive done both static and port forwarding on the wan address.

i doubt its anything to do with the powerline stuff.

for easy testing id chnage the web port to say 82 and test that with a standard browser

Me too, agreed. But have checked, and double checked again and its as per L Willis and other times I've done it before.

OK

Only thinking it as TP link unmanged switches were the culprit with a certain DNLA problem recently, before i read about it I wouldn't have believed it either.

Yes, I will when I go back, its just so odd...

BT hubs were a pain the first few times to be fair.

I've noticed the virgin superhubs won't take a dyndns account, hopefully the DVRS should keep it online,

Stripped out Netgear firmware IIRC lots of features missing.

I recommend setting the VSH to "modem mode" and getting your own router.

Its heavily skinned. Only come across 2 so far, setup the ports and using the DVR for dyndns.

Talk talk are using dlink units. Looks like a tiny homehub.
