Port Management Interface Needs Some Love

Community Member

Not sure why a device has to be online and visible through Google's router for me to define IP/port forwarding. I should be able to press the add button, select "Setup manually" option, and define the IP address, ports, and protocols manually. Worse yet, for whatever reason, if I don't have the endpoint sending out constant network traffic, the router thinks my device is "Not available". Setting a constant ping from the server resolves, but why should I have to do that?


Also, I shouldn't have to exclude/reserve an IP address in DHCP if that address isn't even in the DHCP pool's scope and I should be able to edit all my settings through a web browser interface. I get you want to lock down everything so people can't break their stuff right out the gate, but give me an option yeah?
