I've been trying to get the Advanced DMZ feature working on my Bell Aliant Home Hub 3000. I'm able to get the WAN IP address on the DMZ computer, but nothing is forwarded by the router. If I disable Advanced DMZ and use the standard DMZ, everything works properly, but not with Advanced enabled.

Technical support was not helpful. Does anyone have this working?

Wow.. that's an unfortunate bug... and the number of people trying to use Adv DMZ is probably so low, the issue doesn't even show up on their radar.
I am definitely keeping my R3000!

And, unfortunately, their 'DMZ' really doesn't help for a lot of applications.

ICMP is not passed, so you CAN NOT use an IPv6 tunnelbroker with the HH3000
ESP is not passed, so you can not properly use IPSec tunnels(endpoint in responder mode only will sometimes work)

You could take the SFP out and use your own router on VLAN 35, but if you have home phone or TV service you will loose access to it. TV service can possibly be worked around using pfSense but not on an EdgeRouter.

I have Advanced DMZ working for over a year now. some times I have to reboot both devices, and then release and renew the IP from my ASUS Router to get it to pick up the Public IP.
but initially in the HH3000 just go to the DMZ section, click on the device you want to use, click on the Advance option down below, then Save.
on the router/pc that is being used do a release/renew and it should have the Public IP.

New HH3000 installed. HH3000 LAN 3 to WAN of my router. Under DMZ, added my router and checked Advanced DMZ box. Advanced DMZ is not working.

The router does not get an external IP from HH3000. The HH3000 saw my router at some point because it gave it a 169.1.1.1 IP. Currently, though, my router is showing as off-line.

The times it goofs up on me, the router just gets a 192.196.2.x IP from the router.
Yesterday morning I woke up and had no internet access, I had to Reboot the HH3000 and let it come all the way up, then reboot the router and had internet access with ADMZ working again.

** I only have Internet working, I don't have TV service, If you have TV service you might need to have the STBs connected to the HH3000 and not use VLAN options in router.
I just use "DHCP automatic" in my ASUS router, I previously had VLAN used with old setup before HH3000

Advanced DMZ question

Hi all,

I am trying to get my PS4 to work with the advanced DMZ and all I get on my PS4 from the 3000 is the public IP. No gateway or DNS. How does this setup work? Is there an industry-standard name for this type of 'advanced DMZ'?

I have a buddy that thought this was the MOST IMPORTANT thing to have setup for his PS4 to play GT:Sport, I finagled it to work on his R3000h(he was installed just before the HH3000 was released in his area), he had been running standard DMZ(NAT 2) fine for years, as soon as we switched to ADMZ, he lost the ability to play, whatever was going on, it didn't work right. Switched back to standard DMZ hosting, and all was good. Games like this are designed to work fine without any special DMZ configuration, otherwise 99.9999999999% of home users wouldn't be able to play or get things working on their own. These games would NEVER be designed to accept direct incoming connections, they all rely on central servers to manage this.

Regular DMZ would not require port forwarding. When you configure regular DMZ, it asks the IP of the DMZ, it then forwards ALL packets destined for the internet facing IP, to that IP specified, thus eliminating the need for port forwards.

Did you call in to request it (I've read that on the DSLReports forum) or did it "magically" appear? I'm curious if I should call them to have mine pushed down...
