|Anyone else who does onsite services been having problems with getting alternate port number forwards on Verizon FIOS routers to work? I use an alternate port number for Remote Desktop (lets say 6000), and twice when I had a client switch to FIOS (home and business), the port forward doesn't work. A telnet test doesn't even indicate a connection. But it works internally and worked with the previous routers, even the DSL modem/routers they had. I spent about an hour once with Verizon support, but the guy couldn't figure out why the rules wouldn't work and he eventually went with the party line, "Verizon does not support port forwards, so there's nothing more we can do."|
The predefined service ports seem to work ok like SMTP and PC Anywhere, thankfully, but it just seems these custom ports do not. Anyone else run into this?
Assume that I already did an Internet search.
