I am trying to setup port forwarding

I am trying to setup port forwarding for a mfi 5510l hotspot. I have made the changes on the hotspot but the hotspot doen't respond when tested. Can anyone help?

Re: I am trying to setup port forwarding

If you examine the About section of the Jetpack’s web style user interface, you should find that it has a reserved IP4 IP address. That means your Jetpack doesn’t connect directly to the public internet, your Jetpack is connected to Verizon’s private network. Your port forwarding has no affect on Verizon’s private network.

The standard recommendation is:

Purchase a public facing static IP address from Verizon for a one time fee of $500.

Use a VPN to go around the issue. 

Use another ISP that provides a static IP address.
