    Okay so this might sound like a simple fix but, I've tried all those and it isn't so now I'm stumped, got a mofi 4500 router with an at&t sim card slotted, I have opened ports required, even tried putting the IP address in the DMZ, tried rewriting a rule to the firewall, so I think att has a strict nat coming from the tower and I want to know if there is a work around possible

    There's no such thing as strict, moderate, or open NAT. These are fake constructs created by the gaming industry which have zero knowledge about networking. NAT is just network address translation. The stupid descriptions of strict or moderate relates to firewall rules.

    Regardless that doesn't help but thanks for your input, Be that as it may it still doesn't change the fact that when I've rewritten rules in the firewall to allow for an "open NAT" they are still blocking the needed ports from opening
