Can anyone advise technically how does this Self Test Work? (How it test the connectivity)
- What kind of "scenario" is it trying to test?

The reasons I am asking is because,
- If I configured Port Forwarding in the router, it Failed.
- But when I put the "Server" in to DMZ in the Router, it Pass the test.
   (The reasons I do not want to place HFS in DMZ is due to security as well as other devices is also in DMZ and that my router only allows 1 purpose in DMZ).

- I have configured the port forwarding 101% correctly and have the Firewall allowed the port, say 8080 or 12333, allow on both Incoming & Outgoing with TCP Protocol.

You may think that I have configure the Port Forward incorrectly and that is why it fails.
FYI, I have tested the same configuration on Port Forwarding and Firewall on other purposes such as VPN, CCTV etc.. and they work fine.

the "self test" asks another server on the internet ( to try to connect to your hfs,
the server tries to connect to you and reports to your HFS the result,
so the self-test can show you the outcome.

you can always test your HFS port with other tools (websites) like
