Twice I was able to add a couple of Port Forwarding rules and was working fine before when I went to check, the status shows Not Available after a day or two. I was able to create them again, was able to use the settings (WakeOnLan and RDP) before I checked again today and not working. Why can it not be kept intact without being a problem almost daily??
Ok, embarrassingly it was because the home desktop was not powered on, so of course as soon as it was, I could then see the port forwarding rules active again. Still it doesn't help if I need to turn it on remotely using WakeOnLAN and RDP like a day later if it's not available but works within a few hours of the desktop being turned off. I work remotely quite often and it would be useful to keep the port forwarding rules active at all times, I'm not comfortable keeping the desktop powered on 24/7. Any other possible workaround anyone? Tia.
Thanks for letting us know what was causing the problem. I'm glad that it wasn't a hardware issue or a bug. We'll keep this thread open for a few more days instead of marking it resolved to see if the community has any input on that workaround you asked about. If you have other questions, just let me know.
