Hairpin NAT Loopback not working?

  • I am having issues with hosting a public facing (port forwarded) game server while also accessing the server from another machine on my subnet. The issue seems to be with NAT Loopback support.

    Linux Server hosting game: (ports forwarded)
    Desktop trying to connect:

    The server won't show up however when searching for it on a different network (let's say using cell phone service) it shows up.

    Does the Alien not support hairpinning? Or am I missing something?

  • Support replied:"Unfortunately, Alien router does not support Loopback aka hairpinning. I will surely forward it as a feature request to the development team."

    Disappointing a $400+ Wifi Router doesn't support a fairly simple feature.
