Re: [Internet] Sagemcom 2864 port fowarding no longer working?!?

Does anyone else have a solution to this problem that does not involve adding an extra device? My router (+ATA) are on a UPS (12vdc, no inverter) so adding an extra device will reduce my battery life by 50% (to first order) unless I upgrade the battery (fairly undesireable due to footprint limitations).

Barring a solution here, I'll try contacting Bell directly. This port forwarding limitation is unbelieavably stupid.

A workaround is to setup an internal DNS with a tool called dnsmasq and overwrites (by adding an entry to host file) the external fully qualified host name so it resolves to a local IP.

In my environment, file dnsmasq.conf looks like this:
expand-hosts
stop-dns-rebind
bogus-priv
server=8.8.8.8
server=8.8.4.4
no-resolv

Last step is to set static DNS on all local machines so it points to server running dnsmasq.
