Situation - I need to forward port 5555

 

Device List

 

2 - WAN 

1 - TP-Link TL-R470T+

1 - Netgear R6200

 

Internal IP's are as follows

 

Internal - WAN 1 - 192.168.254.254

Internal - WAN 2 - 192.168.254.253

 

TP-Link - 192.168.0.1

 

Netgear - 192.168.1.1

 

PC Host - 192.168.1.99

 

Wan1 to TP-Link Internal IP - 192.168.254.21  

Wan2 to TP-Link Internal IP - 192.168.254.31

 

TP-Link to Netgear Internal IP - 192.168.0.2

 

Port Trigger on TP-Link set WAN all port 5555

 

I am forwarding ports as follows

 

Wan1 port forward to 192.168.254.21 --- this is the TP-Link IP internal from Wan1

Wan2 port forward to 192.168.254.31 --- this is the TP-Link IP internal from Wan2

 

Then I am port triggering from TP-Link to the Netgear internal ip 192.168.0.2

 

Finally port forward from the Netgear to the host pc.

 

 

Am I missing something?

No can do.  If your WAN addresses are 192.168.x.x then you'd have to forward on those routers first.  I've never tried port forwarding across multiple routers and don't know how well, or if, it would work.  You need to have access to the external WAN IP address to port forward and have it work.

You misunderstand, I do have access to the external WAN - This is my network! I believe I need to set the TP-Link to NAT and go from there.

 

These are my internal IP's

Is this what you are talking about?

 

Public IP from WAN 1 > 192.168.254.254 (WAN 1 LAN) 192.168.254.21 (TP-LINK WAN1) - > 192.168.0.1 (TP-Link LAN) > 192.168.0.2 (Netgear WAN) > 192.168.1.1 (Netgear LAN) > 192.168.1.99 (PC)1

 

Public IP from WAN 2 > 192.168.254.253 (WAN 2 LAN) > 192.168.254.31 (TP-LINK WAN2) -> 192.168.0.1 (TP-Link LAN) > 192.168.0.2 (Netgear WAN) > 192.168.1.1 (Netgear LAN) > 192.168.1.99 (PC)

No sir

 

It's 

 

WAN1 and WAN2

....

TP-Link TL-R470T+   ----- The 2 WANS are plugged into the load balancer

.....

Netgear Router - The Router is plugged into the load balancer

 

........

 

All devices connect through the Netgear Router so they have access to both Wans and are provided with load balancing.

The first connection is for WAN 1 - Public IP from WAN 1 > 192.168.254.254 (WAN 1 LAN) 192.168.254.21 (TP-LINK WAN1) - > 192.168.0.1 (TP-Link LAN) > 192.168.0.2 (Netgear WAN) > 192.168.1.1 (Netgear LAN) > 192.168.1.99 (PC)

 

The second connection is for WAN 2 - Public IP from WAN 2 > 192.168.254.253 (WAN 2 LAN) > 192.168.254.31 (TP-LINK WAN2) -> 192.168.0.1 (TP-Link LAN) > 192.168.0.2 (Netgear WAN) > 192.168.1.1 (Netgear LAN) > 192.168.1.99 (PC)

 

Both WANs connect on the LAN side to the WAN side of the TP-Link Load Balancer which connects to the WAN side for the Netgear which connects to the PC.

 

The Public IP addresses for WAN1 and WAN2 are not 192.168.x.x or 10.x.x.x.

This is not what I said allow me to explain a little better.......

 

Wan 1 and Wan 2 INTERNALLY connect to TP-LINK ----- the TP-Link load balances the two wans and pass those two WANS to the Netgear router.

 

The IP listed are my INTERNAL IP's 

 

The wans are not bridged to the TP-Link
