Hi, of course im not trying access NATed services by the public IP address
Im in my office conected with DSL (20km far from home) and im trying to
reach my vilage-network APs. Users in my network are connected wireless to
I wolud like to reach AccesPoint behind mono. (now im doing this way:
conect to my PC using VNC, and from my PC located in LAN side i can open
webadmin page of AP located in LAN) But i cant do it directly to AP from my
office with PROPERLY set NAT rules. (auto-creation firewall rule etc..)
There is somethings with mono... (NAT is working but not properly, i can
reach PC, routers but not AP... ..If i use normal router its no problem to
reach any device)
What are routers passing and mono doesnt?
Anyway, James - thx. for reply!

Hate to ask the obvious questions, but here they are:
Are you trying to access the public IP (184.108.40.206) from the LAN (i.e.
private IP - 192.168.100.x)? If so - classic LANNAT issue...
The next question is when you created the NAT rule did you allow the
auto-creation of the firewall rule? Maybe auto-create should be the default
on inbound NAT?
