Router and Ports

Have the cardano-node and cardano-cli installed. Having trouble with the router and ports. The server has the port 6000 open correctly after command: sudo ufw status numbered

The port has been forwarded on the router

Testing port 6000 with the WAN using YouGetSignal shows the port is closed.

I then turned off the router firewall completely and still no open port. What settings on my firewall need to be set to allow traffic?

Appreciate any help!

Was the cardano-node started when you tested it?

Thanks for the fast reply.

No, I’m following coincashew and am on the topology setup page
“Producers”: [
“addr”: “”,
“port”: 6000,
“valency”: 1
“addr”: “”,
“port”: 3001,
“valency”: 2

At the bottom of that page it says to set the topology and then forward the port and test. Can I start the node prior to configuring the air gap machine steps?


That order of things is strange.

You can only test if a port is correctly forwarded if there is also some service answering on that port.

I would just skip the test for now and continue the guide and then do the test after it tells you to start the node.
