I will preface this post by saying that I know how to forward ports. My question is this: how can I allow my family members to forward ports as well, using my BlueCurve Modem?
Until recently, my brother was able to login to our local gateway and forward ports using the "advanced" port forwarding page:
I was able to provide my brother with the modem's login information to forward ports himself, now it suddenly decided to just redirect him to login to MY Shaw account as the only way to forward ports. I was comfortable allowing him router access, but why is giving him the information to my Shaw account now the only way to allow him to forward ports on his own? We're both techy people and we require the ability to forward ports on a regular basis. Can anyone direct me to a solution to either get that advanced port forwarding page back, or another solution?
This happened to me as well. The issue is now a previous forward doesn't show up on the Bluecurve home page and anyway I prefer to manage these things locally. Is this going to keep happening?

Is it possible to setup port-forwarding, to allow family members to initiate a Remote Desktop Protocol connection to one computer inside your LAN?
If so, is it then possible for that person to access the web-server inside the BlueCurve router, to make additional changes?
I had a tuff time finding it, but I did find it after a few hours. If you log into your router from internet.shaw.ca (Not 10.0.0.1 0r 192.168.0.1) or you can use the Shaw Home App. Go to >Network then click on >Gateway then scroll all the way down to >Advanced Settings there at the top of the page you will find Port Forwarding.
That's not ease of access. Who's dumb idea was this?
Especially when internet.shaw.ca opens a page that says this:
I'll try a factory reset later to see if this fixes it for me.
I tried a factory reset on mine but the settings didn't come back. I can't get port forwarding to work now. I can enter it on the website but it doesn't do anything.
@Quazeye If you are looking to exclusively make changes through the modem UI, do not open the BlueCurve app or internet.shaw.ca as it will forward the settings away from the modem UI. Hope that helps.
