Port forwarding broke after 3.16 update - had to re-create rules to fix

With Eero 3.15.x I had configured two port forwarding rules for my VPN servers. These rules were created on Eero 3.15.x code base. All was working well until I upgraded yesterday to 3.16. The forwarding ceased to work and my VPN clients could not connect to my servers. I did extensive troubleshooting, and what solved the problem was this:

Delete the existing port forwarding rules and re-create them.

After I recreated the rules, inbound traffic was now flowing and all is well.

  • Whoops I fat fingered the to: address. Just resent and did get an automated reply but no ticket number.

  • Same issue here but took 10 min to fix thanks to this post!!

  • Same issue for me but nothing has fixed it. I have a ticket open but not getting much communication from the team. 

  • Same issue here. Sent extensive information at the request of Eero tech support. Subsequent updates haven’t fixed it.
