Nat loopback merlin

Is my home network/wifi secure?! let’s talk

The problem has been resolved! Let me clarify why I’m not sure the title is right! I used to have a DIR-655 router and an Apache server on my LAN. When I tried to access my domain name ( from inside the LAN, the apache logs showed a request with the machine’s LOCAL IP (192.168.0.*). Now that I’ve upgraded to an RT-AC66U with Merlin firmware, any request from any local machine shows the IP as (router) in the apache log!! I’ve tried enabling NAT Loopback in both Asus and Merlin mode, with the same results. If you have any suggestions? Is there something special I need to do in DNS settings or something? EDIT: I really did it! It’s also working as it should. There are 5 comments. 38 percent sharesavehidereport Voted up This discussion has been ended.

Asus router quick how-to: setup your own ddns

I’d like to connect to a local server using a DynDNS domain that points to my external IP address. It works as planned outside my lan, but I can’t get a link inside. As far as I understand it, Merlin keeps the requisite NAT loopback working all the time, so I shouldn’t have any issues. I get a timeout when pinging the domain from several devices on my LAN. My Asus AC86U with FW 384.9 is located behind a DMZ-configured cable router. However, from this cable router, I can ping the domain… Hairpinning and NAT Loopback Problems
I’ve tried a few different browsers, but the http://bridge ip>/QIS wizard.htm?flag=sitesurvey rep page keeps cycling and finding no access points (the main router is just downstairs, and there are neighbor systems).
I have an AC3200, and after downloading Merlin and upgrading to the new build 384.6 about a week ago, I was unable to access Netflix on any of my Roku devices in the building (this was the same on both builds).
I recently purchased a brand new RT-AX88U. After completing the initial setup, I upgraded to Merlin 384.9 0. I didn’t adjust any of the settings, but I was looking for 5 GHz WiFi on a few devices that clearly support it. Despite the fact that the router said it was transmitting, no one could see it. I did a factory reset on the router and tried again, but there was still no 5 GHz signal. I upgraded to Asus firmware version 5 GHz began operating right away. There’s got to be a bug in here… WiFi issues with the RT-AX88U at 5 GHz

How do you fix a 169 ip address so you can get online

This is a concern with the router. NAT Loopback, or NAT Reflection, is what you’re referring to. If your router allows it, it recognizes that the domain/IP you’re using is your public IP and, as a result, holds traffic internal when a client attempts to use the external IP.
If your router does not support NAT loopback, you can always set up your own DNS server, configure a domain forwarding rule, and configure your internal network’s DHCP to transfer the DNS server’s IP address to all clients when they connect.
I just updated my previous response with some new details. NAT loopback should be provided by the AC87U. I have an older ASUS RT-N66U router that works well with NAT loopback. Hang on while I check my settings to see if it’s possible to turn it on or off.
I just double-checked… In the router settings, it appears that you can activate and disable it. However, ASUS had some issues with your model, which they patched with a firmware update. First, I’d install the most recent firmware… Then I’d reset the router to factory settings and reconfigure it, making sure to allow NAT Loopback along the way. I’d also toggle off NAT Acceleration, as it can interfere with Loopback and doesn’t provide much value in any case.

How to: setup nat port forwarding rules on asus rt-ax

Thank you for your answer, but the situation is a little different in this case. As I previously said, as long as the LAN IP is used, remote clients have no trouble accessing anything on my home network. If the client tries to connect to local servers using the WAN IP via NAT Loopback, they will be unable to do so.
Clients on a local network connect to servers on the same network by using the WAN IP and port forwarding, also known as NAT hairpinning. Using port forwarding and IP inbound filtering, I want to keep ‘back door’ access to local servers. Since the iOS apps I use to access the servers don’t allow me to use multiple IP addresses, I’m forced to use the WAN IP.
When using WiFi at home, my iPhone connects to all local servers using their WAN IP and port forwarding. To make it work, I had to add the local subnet to the IP filter whitelist.
