Why port forward not works?

  • Hi,
    I've this configuration on my WDSL connection.

    An antenna with DHCP disabled and an Amplifi router connected via LAN with a static ip address:

    • Ip Address:
    • Network mask:
    • Gateway: (Antenna)
    • Primary DNS:

    I've purchased a static ip address, my purpuse is to expose a simple SSH server of my raspberry in this way:
    ssh <ip>:222

    So, I've configured the antenna port forward:

    • Interface: PPP
    • Private IP: (the amplifi router)
    • Private Port: 222
    • Type: TCP
    • Source IP/Mask:
    • Public IP/Mask:
    • Public Port: 222

    And in the Amplifi router, I've set the port forward:

    • IP Address: (My raspberry)
    • Source port: 222
    • Dest post: 22
    • Protocol: TCP

    Now, if I execute a nmap command:
    nmap -p 222 -sV -P0 <ip>

    I always receive:
    222/tcp filtered

    If I remove the 222 rule on the antenna, the nmap returns "Closed".
    I think that the problem is on the Amplifi that doesn't route the traffic.
    How I can solve?

    I've request the access to ssh server of my antenna.
    When in, I try to connect (always through SSH) to raspberry passing by amplifi router:

    • ssh <ip_antenna>
    • $ ssh -p 222
      but I have "Connection timeout".
      Same issue if I remove the rule into Port Forward options of Amplifi. Seems that the rule isn't considered.
      At the end, with rule or without rule the result is the same.
      I suppose that this shows that the antenna Port Forward works and there are some issues with amplifi port forwarding feature.
