Port forwarding in Jio

I want to access my computer and FTP server from my native place. 
And I need port forwarding from JIO. But they denied the request. Modifying settings on their router don’t work. 

I remember, with ACT Broadband, I was able to access my server from anywhere in the world after configuring the settings on ACT router, during Covid time. 

So is it still possible in ACT ?

Also can we do similar things in Airtel Broadband ?


Experienced folks please respond.

Use tailscale. It needs 0 knowledge 👍

If you still want to spend some effort. IPv6 should work, but you will need ipv6 support on both sides.

Jio Fiber allows port forwarding. Tell the customer care that you want to access the CCTV, they will open 3-4 ports as per your choice. (Don't give them the standard ports, your request will be denied.) You may need to escalate it a bit with the senior customer care executive. If you are a tech savvy, then IPv6 always remains static for the Jio Fiber with all port open.

Yes, ACT allows Port Forwarding on request.

Airtel I guess allows only with the Static IP address.

@Rajkotian Yes IPv4 is costly but IPv6 is dirt cheap if ISP has the infra to support it. Only reason ISP don't give public IPv6 is because they don't want customers to run commercial applications like web server on their home connection without paying the premium for commercial line connection. CGNAT is basically your router functionality replaced by big router at your ISP's end so yes they can setup port forwarding to your CGNAT ip on their end but till now I have only read about Jio doing it from this thread & not sure how long they will allow it. Best option is to learn & use something like tailscale which will work irrespective of what your ISP do in future so a good long term solution.

Yes, the issue is the infra only. Most of the ISPs have the hardware to support it. But it does not end with the hardware infra, many other interfaces need updating. Which is a costly affair right now for everyone. As the ban on many Chinese network components has forced them to purchase new hardware. (Source: Trust me it's very authentic 😉)

Tailscale has its own limitations and connection requirements, direct access is always an easy and better solution and it's not the only solution, there are many such solutions that exist.

I experimented with all the ISPs. Check the working process for the Jio Fiber: https://broadband.forum/threads/reliance-jiofib...

I installed tailgate but I am not able to login. After clicking login, nothing happens. 
Google search results showed that some antivirus programs might be blocking it but I have only Defender in my Win 11.

For port forwarding only condition is that your ISP give a "public IP address" & not CGNAT/pvt ip address whether ipv4 or ipv6. Once you get a public IP address you can enable port forwarding any way you want in your router. Airtel nowadays is giving CGNAT ip but some earlier users still on public IPv4 ip can setup port forwarding in their router. Jio does not give public IPv4 from the beginning as far as I know. BSNL still give it in many places but not all. Smaller ISPs almost never give public IP.

@Rajkotian ipv6 remains same so we don't need ddns? @Seinfeld does it work even if the router is in the behind provider cgnat?

Tailscale always works afaik. 

IPv6 is accessible publicly for jio Fiber and port forwarding works if that’s what you are asking.

Good thing you don't understand as it means you don't require port forwarding. People can spend days trying to set it up correctly. smile

use free services like cloudflare zero trust, tailscale, zerotier etc. but traffic will be routed through their servers, even-though it will be encrypted
