I do have mobile connection which is working fine when going to the internet. The router (WAN side) does have a private IP while it should be a public one.

What I want is that certain ports are open to the internet, for example port 1194 for openVPN.

The (LTE) modem is configured in QMI with mode NAT, but if I change this, to bridge would I be able to forward ports to an internal IP address? Or should I use passthrough ? In both cases a bridge MAC is asked, which MAC address should be used?

As it is now (NAT mode) UPnP does not work either.

Who can help me further?

you have to figure out why you are getting private IP.

Double check your APN settings.

Bridge or passthrough won't work too until modem gets public IP.

While configure the modem, it is set to NAT and if I look omt the states page you see a private IP address and if I go to the site I will see my public IP address I think this is because of the NAT configuration of the modem.

I want to see my WAN ip address as public. How should I accomplish this?

This is not because of nat settings of the router, but rather because of apn.

If you do not kbow what apn you must use to obtain a public ip - please contact your internet provider and inquire them. There is absolutely no other way.
