IPTV multicast.. bridge mode or no I saw some users here know a thing or two about the ZTE router Cincy Bell uses for their FTTP installs. Mine was just installed this week but they put the ZTE router upstream of my brand new Asus RT-N56 router. I've assigned my router a static IP in the ZTE GUI, put it on the DMZ and all incoming port forwarding is working as it should.
But I also have their IPTV service and I'd like to extend it to my Asus router's network if possible. It looks like multicast is being stripped when coming into the Asus router and I'd like to know if anyone's gotten a setup like this working together. Do I just forward IGMP somehow? I saw a suggestion to put the ZTE router in bridge mode, which would simplify things, but I'm also using the MOCA connection for some of my set top boxes and I'm not sure this will interfere. Any ideas out there?
Re: IPTV multicast.. bridge mode or no So I figured out how to allow the multicast packets in through the RT-N56. I had to enable static routes and multicast routing for the LAN.
Is there a listing of the different RTP streams that are accessible? And does Cincinnati Bell plan on opening up the rest of the streams to other devices? Because that would be amazing to be able to use XBMC or Windows Media Center as a DVR.
Re: IPTV multicast.. bridge mode or no I have FTTH, which doesn't use IPTV. Are these still supported?
Also, if someone doesn't purchase TV (if they get internet only), do these still work?
Re: IPTV multicast.. bridge mode or no The old style FTTH doesn't have these streams available but the new style FTTH with ZTE STBs does.
Fioptics ZTE modem/router will not forward port 80 Just got fioptics installed to my work. 12 fiber's coming in to our building, ungodly expensive business monthly rate and yet they still give us the piece of shit ZTE modem/router.
For the life of me, I cannot get it to forward port 80 to one of our machines that runs a small webserver.
If I go to NAT, I can add a port forward for port 80. When I apply the settings, it tells me that the web server on the router itself will be moved to port 8080. Great, right?
No, it doesn't actually move it to port 8080. The router still hosts its page on port 80 and will not forwards the packets and 8080 is closed. I have wireshark running on the webserver and nothing is coming in on port 80. Other ports work, but port 80 will not forward for the life of me.
Any ideas? No option to put it in bridge mode either. We have a VPN router doing all of the other NAT and such, so basically there's double NAT going on.
Re: Fioptics ZTE modem/router will not forward port 80 In the thread below I pointed somebody at documentation for a similar ZTE device which looked like it showed how to place the device in bridge mode.
»FiOptics ZTE Router/Modem....
The ZyXel modems can certainly be placed in bridge mode - best way to run them!
Just be aware that if you are using IPTV you need a router which can IGMP proxy.
Re: Fioptics ZTE modem/router will not forward port 80 I saw that thread, thanks. Unfortunately, that isn't for our specific model of router/modem and I don't know enough about networking to fiddle around with our modem running with a live connection that the business relies on to operate. The fioptics guy is coming tomorrow morning to mess with it.
Re: Fioptics ZTE modem/router will not forward port 80 Good luck with the visit. If that doesn't resolve the problem and it is still causing business issues PM me for some suggestions.
Re: Fioptics ZTE modem/router will not forward port 80 Cincinnati Bell came out and gave us a new modem that actually allowed port 80 to go through. No more problems!
Re: Fioptics ZTE modem/router will not forward port 80 For future reference - if the new modem happens to be the ZyXel than that unit also bridges quit easily. I just wish it was half the size...
Looking for help with NAT Loopback on ZTE router I had fioptics installed last week. I use port forwarding for a computer that I use for demonstrating a software solution. Everything works fine when I am outside my network. When I am at home, I can not access the computer with the URL I have setup. This is on a ZTE model ZXHN H368C. There appears to be no way to turn on NAT Loopback which is what I need. I called support and went through two techs and then to a third who basically dropped the ball by saying he would call me back in 3-6 minutes....it has been over 2 hours now. I suspect he bailed on this ticket. Getting worried that CB is not going to help so I am posting here hoping someone has solved this problem.
Re: Looking for help with NAT Loopback on ZTE router I haven't seen that particular unit but another possibility that might work if the router supports it is:
1) Use the router as the DNS server for your local clients
2) Place a static entry in the router DNS server pointing the domain at the private address
