Can't reach relay node

I have a BP and relay built in virtual box on a home computer. Everything is registered (shows up on,, and adapools) but I do not get any TX. Checking on

Relay node

Can’t reach relay node

Check manually that the topology for relay node is configured

Relay node is missing in topology.json

Port forwarding is enabled for port 6000 on the Desktop hosting the VM’s. My home gateway router (ATT) says port forwarding is enabled but when I check on it says it is still closed.
topologyUpdater_lastresult.json says:

“resultcode”: “403”, “datetime”:“2021-04-16 02:22:05”, “clientIp”: “”, “iptype”: 4, “msg”: “glad you want to stay with us, but please check and enable your IP:port reachability”

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advanced.

Hello, u will need to check the fw rules…

sudo ufw status
Did u opened the port?

Hello Alex,

The firewall is inactive on both BP and relay. The firewall on the desktop hosting the VM’s is also disabled. I am thinking it is my gateway router at the house not able to port forward even though it says it is forwarded…

you can try from your relay

telnet Producer_IP Producer_port (public IP)
you should see connected

Any update on this? Have you managed to have active connections?

I gave up on the ATT 5268AC router being able to port forward. On the router its says 6000 is open but when I check on a port checked it says closed. I have migrated to the cloud and am still working on it. So far everything works except for the processed TX. I guess I have to wait until the next topology update and see what happens.
