Make Lima use a range of ports so that backup Lima does not use relay

Make Lima use a range of network ports, instead of just one, so that backup Lima does not use relay and so that multible Limas and accounts can be used on same network without relaying ie. at max. speed.

Very good idea but wouldn't solve the issue when the Internet provider enables only some port ranges (example with the Optic Fiber solution from French Internet provider FREE in case of ZMD area because the ports are split into four ranges across clients (see my post), the 25211 port couldn't be used and I could only used the ports between 32768 and 49151 . I guess your idea with a little bit more flexibility regarding the port selection would be a must.

Many thanks.

This is really an excellent idea, and would probably boost the sales of additional Lima Ultra's for many users.

Personally I was not aware of the port limitation but have port 25211 open for one Lima Ultra, but the second remain in relay state - what a shame.

Did you try to activate the uPNP function on your router/modem setup?

I have 3 lima connected (2 on 1 router and 1 on a wireless extender). Any of them use the same internal port (25211) but they use different external ports, look at the printscreen (sorry it's in Italian)...No relay state.112b4c90c6fc5c382becde88b987e87c44aee848728ff664cc24ee75ca773d76

Dang! I bout a second Lima thinking I could run two in parallel on the same LAN. Apparently I can't?

You can (I do), but the second lima uses Relay rather then port redirect.

and this is a problem, it is more useful if the second lima uses an other port rather than Relay system...

Do you you want to create two different clouds (i.e. two different Lima with two different accounts) on the same LAN?

Francesto is correct. You need to enable uPnP. I have my two Limas connected as shown in this screen shot.

Well, if you have another router than a Apple Time Capsule you might be right.

Unfortunately, in the TC you don't have to many uPnP configuration options as you can only assign one public TCP-port (25211) with one private IP address / private TCP-port (25211). This is why Lima should provide the flexibility to configure other public TCP-ports as well.

I appreciate Lima's simplicity for 99% of their customers. But it is clear that there are a few of us who would prefer more direct control - assign a port or even an IP address, and tell Lima in the cloud as well as Lima in our office what the values are. Lima? What say you?
