Self Test breaks behind Network Bridge - Windows 7
« on: June 26, 2010, 12:19:55 PM »
I've setup a network bridge, for media sharing with my PS3 and some other stuff, between two old network cards.

Self Test fails the port check, when behind a network bridge. But HFS works correctly, if the router is setup right, and the network bridge has a static IP.

So HFS does work, but the Self Test fails, I think this is a self test bug.

Hi TSG ! :)

There are many posts currently on the forum that indicate problems with the self-test.
These problems occur with different hardware configurations.
Rejetto think that the problem comes from the side of his hosting service ... but solution has not yet been find.

Can you put all that embellishes with images it with an organization chart and various addresses ip of your sub-Network, I would understand better your configuration and would more be able to inquire. ;)

Hey, seems various 'server' type clients also think my network doesn't have a port forward, except everything works perfectly. Its a strange error, maybe one that can't be fixed.

In any case, here is my layout, in text form:

PC Network Settings (on bridge):
IP: 10.1.1.5
Subnet: 255.0.0.0
Router: 10.1.1.1
DNS: 10.1.1.1

Network Layout:
Router > PC
Router > PC > PS3 (via bridge)
Router > TV
Router > Wireless (everything else)

Port Forwards (at router):
Apache: 80
HFS: 81
Auxillary: 55255

HFS works fine when using ICS, however I couldn't use this Windows feature, couldn't get UPnP servers to work properly with it. Found using a bridge (turn my pc into a switch) to be easier to configure and use for my needs.

test this config with the same mask ip on your two network

router-(192.168.1.1)---(192.168.1.a)-PC
router-(192.168.1.1)---(192.168.1.x)-PC-(192.168.1.y)---(192.168.1.z)-PS3


or something similar (10.0.0.1)

Forgot I posted this, yes my HFS and Apache work fine over the internet, the self test still says I am behind a router though. Network changed a little, but essentially the same, still using a bridge to save the need for a network switch in here, hard to explain my network layout, I have two long network cables that run through the walls, and then a bridge with an old ethernet card that links a third device.

An old version of utorrent I prefer using has the same problem, it thinks I haven't forwarded a port either.

So it may be a restriction by windows, or something that has been overcome by newer software versions.
