I am looking into this now and will post up when I have something for you 🙂
Spot on chaps!
I was pulling my hair out over this after meticulously setting up all my old prt forwards to only find that I coud access any of them!
However I have now done as suggested and tried from a 3G connection and it works fine. I even gor DYNDNS running through the hub without the need for surplus software on my machine.
Can we request an update for as soon as LOOPBACK is implemented into the new HomeHub as I regulary use it to Screen-Share, Web-Gui's etc
Craig, I am also having a major problem with this and it has taken an IT expert some considerable time to discover that the problem is with the hub not doing the port forwarding thing which is an essential part of the software I am trying to use for my business. This has become a really frustrating exercise and is holding up our business. Could you please let us know when a fix is in place?
I've got HH3 and I can't even get external people to connect through to my IP network cam let alone myself through loopback!
I'm relatively experienced with port forwarding with Netgear etc. and have NEVER had a problem. With HH3 I cannot get any external connection either to the router admin page or to any other IP on my LAN via port forwarding.
I've got the IP cam sitting on a LAN IP and works perfectly from any computer on my LAN. But whatever portforwarding settings I use it's impossible to access externally.
I've read other forums which claim problems with the portforwarding with HH3, but a few people claim it worked for them.
Anyone got any tips?
I've got latest firmware, tried different ports, different ways of listing the port forwarding (individual or groups), disabled UpnP (should be irrelevant anyway), disabled firewall completely, tried port config app (doesnt support HH3), used port checker, etc. etc.
My conclusion is that BT Infinity and HH3 are both pants...
I am just about to go on a business trip only to discover at the last minute that simple remote admin of my home network is impossible, the kinds of things I used to do every day with my last ISP and hardware.
Netgear and Bethere sorely missed.
Yup... same problem for me... was hoping we would get some response from BT by now at least with an ETA... HH3 will be consigned to a cupboard and a new router bought if I cannot be assured of an imminent fix. This is basic stuff and should have been working before the HH3 was released. Having to go through all my machines and update the .hosts files to point direct to the internal IP address is not really what I need!
