It won't be the Openreach modem you need to open ports on - this is just a pass through device
Which ports are you trying to open? Has your monowall box worked before ok?
Edit: Probably worth checking the firewall here is off - https://portal.plus.net/my.html?action=firewall

Re: forwarding ports with a openreach modem

Hi thanks for the reply. I'm aware the modem its self don't block ports but ive been told that they spoof the external ip address meaning the external ip i have is not the one on the net.
Yes it all did work before with the same setup that's the part that confuses me.
