If you cannot figure it out regarding the issues then there are some of the reasons causing the errors of the port to forward in Netgear routers. There are a few reasons that can be the cause for the issues as follows:
- The server might not be accessible from the internal network. This causes a block of the forwarding of the port.
- Incorrect port forwarding settings are managed in the router
- The private IP address is available on the status page. Check whether the Netgear router is attaining the public IP address. If it is private, then it might not be enough to open the port on the Netgear router.
