Can anyone please advise how to remove blocking on the Smart Hub for outbound secure web access on specific ports, as I can’t access a server from home via BT Broadband and am having to use my phone as a hotspot.
I don’t see any port options in the hub manager app for outbound port status/management and whilst I don’t want (inbound) port forwarding through the router to a specific device, even forcing this fails to provide outbound connectivity.
Updating this post just in case it can help others...
This turned out to be a DNS server issue and because the Smart Hub doesn't allow manual setting of DNS Servers, I had to replace the BT Smart Hub with an alternative where these could be manually overriddeden.
So, with an ASUS DSL-AC68U, I was able to set Google DNS servers 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 and port 2018 (the standard cPanel secure https port) is accessible and I can work from home.
