Manually opening network ports on the AVADO
Certain packages - like blockchain nodes - usually need to open a couple of ports on your router to work well.
Adrian Sutton from the Teku team wrote a great blog post about this: https://www.symphonious.net/2021/08/14/exploring-eth2-why-open-ports-matter
The AVADO OS is able to automatically open specific ports on your router via UPnP. If UPnP is not enabled on your router, you need to open ports manually. The process is explained on this page.

Go to the AVADO admin UI - and click on the avatar image (the green circle in this picture) you’ll get a popup. Take note of the “Internal IP” - we will need it later.
Find out how to open the web-UI of your router by looking in your router’s manual, by looking the website of your ISP or by contacting your ISP’s support. Here we will explain how to do this on a Fritzbox 7530. Your brand may vary - and there is a generic tutorial on port forwarding here: https://www.purevpn.com/blog/how-to-forward-ports-on-your-router/#How_to_setup_Port_Forwarding_on_your_router
Go to internet -> permit access click on “add device for sharing”
Then select your AVADO from the dropdown list (verify if the IP address displayed corresponds to your internal IP address you looked up in the first step) and click “New sharing”
Fill in the ports that you want to forward. In this case we’re trying to open ports 30303/TCP and 30303/UDP which are the ports for your Ethereum node (Geth)
and for the second port
You’ll arrive back at the oveerview screen - press “OK” to confirm these settings
And an overview to you can see that all is done correctly.
Congratulations ! Ports are now forwarded to your AVADO!
