#19634 closed defect (not_a_bug)

Barrier Breaker will not forward port with mac filtering enabled

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: mac forward Cc:


Running Archer C7. Port forward WAN to LAN works until origin MAC address is specified in LuCI. Then incoming connection cannot be made. Removing origin MAC address restriction allows incoming connection to work again. Everything else seems to work.

That is not strictly a bug. The origin mac only works for link local partners, it is not "transferred over the internet". The source mac of an incoming connection on wan will always be the one of your ISPs router.
