If you want to forward WAN ports to the localnode, for some reason the OpenWRT Mesh software does not seem to work.

For permanent firewall changes:

Here is the solution to opening the port for WAN on the linksys MESH router:
1. SSH into Mesh (Don't forget to ssh with 2222)
2. Add the two lines to /etc/rc.d/S45firewall between }'s as follows:
iptables -A input_wan -p tcp --dport 6667 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A input_wan -p udp --dport 6667 -j ACCEPT




Reboot and firewall rules stay!
