Port forward errors
« on: February 05, 2014, 12:46:35 PM »
I use SPF often and have never had trouble with it, but when I tried port forwarding yesterday it came up with this error; see picture.

I have looked around and didn't find what could help this, unless I have been really ignorant and missed it.

Thanks in regard.

*edit* Let me add that it normally doesnt get to this screen, it instantly gives me the error, the time of this picture it asked me to log in.

You can only forward a port to one device at a time and that port is already in the first rule that points to a different IP.

The script shows it entered everything and when it clicked the save button is when the error popped up. I think it is an error because of the port being in another rule, maybe, I cant remember if linksys even gives an error about that.

Seen linksys do this before, its web server is crashing, just unplug the power to it and plug it back in, once back up it should work normally again :wink:
