Packet seems to be getting dropped but not sure what the cause is

Thu Nov 24, 2022 3:06 am

I'm running into a problem where WAN machines are unable to connect to my LAN machine via port forwarding rules. I've verified connection within the LAN network and I've confirmed that I can see the WAN traffic for port 16261 with protocol UDP within the torch tool. I'm unable to connect to the server which is hosted on LAN I've also ran nmap on my LAN to verify the local firewall on the actual machine isn't an issue and it isn't as the port is shown as open|filtered after modifying the firewalld rules. When attempting to nmap the WAN IP I get a port closed (used nmap -sU -p 16261

I've attached my current config here. I would very much appreciate any help. I've looked over the rules and I'm unsure of what it can be. Feel free to point out any other config issues that you notice if any. Network hardware wise, I have the mikrotik router with an ethernet cable connected to an older router running openwrt (I think, can't really connect to it to check) which is setup in a way that it's acting as a switch. The hosted machine is plugged into the openwrt router. Typical internet traffic flow/regular use of the machine is working just fine with outbound traffic.

You cannot map two ports using a single rule this way - the to-ports is a pool to use and there is no relationship to the original destination port. But if you remove the to-ports completely, the original dst-port will stay unchanged, so this modification should resolve your issue.

Your current rules in chain input of filter could be safer, the default ones would be better. Currently you selectively drop DNS requests from the internet but nothing else, so your router can be managed from the internet by someone who knows a vulnerability of Winbox - the list of permitted addresses works at application level and the chances that a vulnerability exists at application level are higher than of a vulnerability in the firewall.
