[Solved] Accessing a local 192.168.x.y address behind WAN with public address

Dear all,

My OpenWRT address is connected with WAN to a fiber ONT and receiving a public IPv4 address with DHCP. It appears that my ONT web status page is accessible on on port 80 (I can ping this address).

Is there a way to assign an additionnal 192.168.4.x address to my WAN for access to my ONT web status page without loosing my public IP address? Some kind of Alias. I don't see how to do it in LuCi, maybe it is easier with command lines.

This would allow me to check ONT status remotely.

You can exclude this address from the BCP38 blocklist:

uci add_list bcp38.@bcp38[0].nomatch=""
uci commit bcp38
/etc/init.d/bcp38 restart
/etc/init.d/firewall restart

Yes, this is the simpliest approach. Thanks.

Is bcp38 a default package these days? I don't have it in 19.07?

If not, wouldn't the following solve the problem without need for another package:

I have that post bookmarked and refer to it often.
