    I have moved this to a different section of the forum as this has no place being posted in 1v1 support. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

    Port triggering or port forwarding is the best method to use.

    BIG__DOG reacted to e38BimmerFN in What are the pros and cons of putting my console in DMZ?   
    DMZ isn't needed for xbox. If the XR router is setup well, uPnP enabled and if you have more then one game console online at the same time, set NAT Filter to OPEN(only for two or more game consoles), and your ISP modem has NO NAT router built in, xbox game consoles will work great with the XR router and NO DMZ is needed. My two game consoles work great behind my XR450.
    You can use DMZ for devices like VOIP or microcells which are safe to use in the DMZ. Please DO NOT put any kind of NAS storage device into a DMZ or you'll get your files encrypted and be subject to randsomware. 🤑

    It does not prioritize packets at all, it just allows your device to have every port open to it inbound and outbound.

    you need the openvpn config details and also the certificate. I am sure on their site they say they support netduma and Netgear routers in their support pages. That will guide you through the setup process.

    BIG__DOG got a reaction from Netduma Fraser in Port Triggering/UpNp   
    Port Triggering...the router senses when a port is trying to listen...from a service you have behind the NAT..and it opens, upon demand. It's sort of a predecessor to UPnP. It's done by the router. As with port forwarding I would use one of them, not a combination of them. UPnP is automatic port forwarding.

    Any device that is placed in a routers DMZ has ALL ports open to it. This is a major security threat especially for pc's, laptops, tablets etc etc. It is less of a deal for consoles as their data is automatically encrypted but is still a risk. Port triggering in my opinion is a better option to take.

    it can be installed on  a laptop too. But you need to be network savvy in order to use it. it is too complicated to say in a forum post. I suggest you watch youtube videos on wireshark packet capturing.

    BIG__DOG got a reaction from PharmDawgg in XR500 No internet after reboot   
    There is what is known as "hand shaking" this means that a router has to communicate and varify itself to the ISP that it belongs to the owner who is subscribed to them which is you. This takes a longer than usual time if you have a PPPoE connection. Aggressive mode sends a connection request about every 20 seconds or so, this may cause an isp to think it is under an attack. It is not recommended to reboot your router or turn it off regularly as leaving it on is what it is designed to do. Hope this helps to explain the reasons why it takes so long to obtain a public IP address and connect to the internet.

    That would be nice. Fingers crossed that we will soon have such a release. At least from my experience right now with the XR300, the latest firmware is in an alpha or beta state at best. Absolutely unacceptable, so let’s hope a bug fix release will be out soon.

    BIG__DOG got a reaction from Zippy in Another issue with device manager and network monitor not showing device or usage   
    Hi. on the XR series of routers there is also netgears firmware that runs under dumaOS. So it is a bit more complicated implementing fixes as both Netduma and then Netgear do testing and then Netgear decide when updates are made available. 
    I did mention above that there is work being done on a new firmware that Netduma are working on for the Xr500 range which @Killhippie and @Zippy is unaware of and not the firmware he thinks I meant in his above comment. I hope this is soon for everyone but we are aware of everyone's concern as we too including myself have the XR routers too. Have a lovely weekend everyone and happy gaming!

    The DoS issue was patched in 2.3.2.56, BIG_DOG.  It's the certificate disclosure issue that's effecting the XR700, R9000, R8900and RAX120. Hotfixes are meant to be incoming soon for that one. I just updated my RAX120 on Monday to a new firmware that was just released and now I 'll have to apply a hotfix as well <sigh> I wish Netgear would be more proactive as the hardware is great. After a while its hard to remember which vulnerability effects what router these days

    I understand a firmware update is currently being worked on but it's release date is unclear yet. Hopefully a patch for this issue is included in said update. Please note that although 
    Netduma work on thier software ultimately it is down to Netgear when firmware is released as the hardware is their product.

    I would hardly call myself a Netgear Guru, Zippy, maybe I just have to much time on my hands  but yes if you use any firmware lower than 2.3.2.56 on say the XR500 you open yourself up to a nasty Denial of Service attack on your router and LAN. The risk is all yours if you do downgrade, but if it goes wrong and you get caught out buy any of the patched security vulnerabilities they have warned you. Netgear wont really help you that much because they have posted that advisory as a way of saying "update now, if not its not our fault anything bad happened"  It's basically their disclaimer for responsibility if you didn't follow their advice, which is fair enough really.
