  • nag sesetup sana ako ng SoftEtherVPN sa office namin dahil kailangan WFH, nakakakonek naman na ako and nakikita ko yung Server PC, problem ay hindi nakikita yung ng client PC yung ibang PC sa Server VPN side.

    tapos sobrang bagal ng file access, 30mbps ang speed ng client and 150mbps sa Server.

    meron ba dito may experience sa SofEtherVPN?
  • Good day mga sirs! Newbie here.

    Balak ko itry yung Aimesh networking ng Asus, pero wired connection ang mga routers. Kamusta yung actual performance ng gantong tech?
  • Question, does Native mode (Asus Router) won't work if I'm on ipv6 + route on PLDT Fibr (SLAAC/DHCPv6) currently?

    Passthrough works pero nawawala wala connection sa ONU
  • Please help, sa mga Converge users na may router model AN5506-04-FS, baka po alam niyo ang default admin password? I need to do Port Forwarding to make my NAT type "Open" for better a better online gaming experience. Before you say anything, I'm not talking about "user/user1234"--that's only for basic access like changing your SSID and Wifi Password. I'm looking for more advanced access. I've been trying to call Converge's hotline but haven't had any luck, lagi lang "The system has reached the maximum channels, please try again later."
  • ^ naka private IP yata ang Converge Home users, so hindi din gagana Port Forwarding
  • Talaga bang hindi na-cle-clear and back to factory settings Baudtec DSL modem ng PLDT? Kahit hard reset na, ayaw pa rin mabura admin setup ng PLDT.
  • I cant get my mind around port forwarding. I have access to PLDT Fibr's ONU admin page and opened all the ports to my Unifi USG (192.168.5.1) and my pc (192.168.5.10). My setup below:

    PLDT ONU -> Unifi USG -> Unifi Switch -> PC
    PLDT ONU -> Unifi USG -> Unifi Switch -> 2x Unifi Wireless AP -> WIFI Devices

    What I have done so far:
    1) PLDT ONU open all TCP UDP ports (1 to 65535) to 192.168.5.1 and 192.168.5.10
    2) On my unifi controller, I have opened port 3074 to 192.168.5.10
    3) PC Windows Firewall is off but i have unblocked this port as well in case

    When I use a port checker software or website, for port 3074 , it still says port is not open. How do I make this work?
  • @tehon3 Ang alam ko, CGNAT na tayo matagal na, so hindi na talaga gagana port forwarding, unless may static IP ka from PLDT na may extra bayad yata monthly.
  • ^

    try having something that generates traffic on that port


  • Does it matter if hindi naka-bridge mode yung ONU ko? I havent had the change to call PLDT for that.
  • @tehon
    have you verified if you are on CGNAT, because if yes balewala na ang port forwarding

    if non-CGNAT naman, and pldt modem is on routing mode. then you would need to port forward both on pldt modem and unifi. others nilalagay sa DMZ yung own router para hindi na kailngan mag port forward sa pldt modem

    ideal scenario is non-CGNAT and pldt modem is in bridge mode. all the routing would now be handled by unifi.
  • possible ba pag nag bridge mode ka from pldt ONU matatanggal ang cgnat? problema wla ako USG :( pldt onu > unifi switch > pc

  • Thanks for the tips @frequenzy is there a way to verify CGNAT settings or do I need to call it to PLDT to confirm? Worst case is I might need to buy my own IP from them and switch to bridge mode.
  • ^ monthly yata ang payment para sa Public IP
  • @unknown
    nope, kung CGNAT ka kahit bridge mode CGNAT ka pa rin.

    @tehon3
    from windows cmd line

    tracert 1.1.1.1

    if you see a 100.x.x.x then you are on CGNAT

    sobra ka naman sa sanitize kahit ung last octet na lang inerase mo

    ung 1 and 2, local networks yan (bat dalawang router dinaanan ewan ko na lang sa network setup mo)

    ung 3 (101.127.ewan.ewan) and 4-5 (183.90.ewan.ewan) d ako 100% sure, pero mukhang singapore (Starhub) yan

    Either nasa singapore ka, or nkaVPN ka to singapore (or edit mo message mo para malinaw naman ung hop 3-5)

  • Hi All, patulong sana ako kung may idea kayo. Napansin ko kasi yung cat5e cable ko sa bahay (23meters in-wall) from room to electrical room naka 10/100 lang ang connection. Everytime na i-reboot ko yung switch or tanggal kabit, babalik sya ng gigabit. Pero pagkatapos ng ilang oras o kaya isang araw, babalik sya sa 10/100 tapos hindi na aakyat ng gigabit until i-reconnect ko.

    Modem --> UDM --> Gigabit Switch ----(23m)----> Gigabit Switch --> AP and Rooms

    3pcs cat5e cables ang meron ako from switch to switch, all 3 cables same problem kaya duda ako na cable and/or termination. Saka nakapagtataka kasi minsan umaabot ng 1 day naka gigabit bago babagsak sa 10/100. What I've tried so far but still no go:

    - force negotiate connection to 1Gbps FDX (on both switches)
    - turned off power/energy saving features of both switches
    - changed both switches
    - double checked cables are cat5e and yung distance is 23m (kala ko nung una is sobra sa layo lang)

    Ang naiisip ko nalang is baka may interference galing sa power lines kasi nasa electrical room lahat ng main breakers ng bahay. May iba pa kaya akong pwedeng gawin to test/isolate yung problema? Thanks!
  • @paul
    have you tried replacing the cables yet? cat6 perhaps that can provide less noise and crosstalk

    i also have in-wall setup and yung riser location is shared sa electrical. pero cat6 gamit ko, and naka blue pvc yung mga cables.
  • @paulito - Ubiquiti UDM ba ang router mo?
  • @frequenzy

    In-wall kasi yung mga cables so very hard to replace them now. 2 of the 3 cables are together in one blue PVC pipe. The 3rd cable is on a separate PVC pipe. Although Cat5e cables sila, I don't think sila yung shielded type kasi ang shielded ata is yung parang may thin "metallic" sheet na naka-ikot sa twisted wires inside the cable.

    I was just hoping na baka may iba pang ideas na nag cause sa problem aside from yung electrical interference na hula ko. Kasi if yun talaga, baka next time ko na iisipan uli since its still negotiating at 10/100 now. Too much time and work to replace the cables as of now.

    @Battlestarmargarine

    Yes, Ubiquiti UDM sir.

  • @paulito
    has the cables worked fine before at 1G or this is a new setup?
  • @frequenzy

    While the UniFi is a new-ish install (was running Asus routers with various 3rd party FWs prior), I’ve never actually used the cable/s running to the Electrical room before. My family is happy with just WiFi and since the modem & router is in my room, I can connect by wire without going thru the E.Room.

    Lockdown kasi so I had the time to set it up now but unfortunately ran into this problem. Sayang lang kasi as of now, all ports to the other rooms in the house as well as 1 AP location goes thru the electrical room and 10/100 lang connection nila (under 100 Mbits/s when tested using iPerf).
  • @paulito
    understood, so it looks like ngayon lang talaga na test yung cables. iniisip ko kasi kung dahil sa interference yan, ang effect is slower transmission pero dapat 1G pa rin yung connection at hindi magsync sa 100M. imho, may issue sa cables yan.
  • Baka may nakakaalam ng fix dito sa bug na ito i used asus rt-ac3200 router flash with latest fresh tomato build version 2020.2 pero hindi gumagana ang inbound distribution graph sa QOS nya. Thanks
