According to the manual: However, not all "ports that are not specified in the port forwarding summary table" are forwarded. This apparently does not apply for any of its "reserved" ports.…
G1 has this issue too. Having the ability to make the web interface accessible from the WAN side of the router is a terrible idea. That is just asking to be hacked.
