Anyone know how I can setup port forwarding for ROS2. With the current WFH atmosphere, I'm trying to connect to a remote system over the cell modem. I'd like to be able to interact with it as if it was local. With ros1 I just needed to forward port 11311, but with ROS2, it's dynamic. I'm ok forwarding large sections, I just need to know what sections to forward. Anyone get this working yet?

I'm not sure how to do this and am interested in learning how. This might be a function of the dds implementation you're using, I would add that to the question.

I'm just using the default one.

Have you got it working fully yet? I understand that you would have to do port-forwarding on the remote network. But how and where do you point to the public IP so that a Ros2 node can send messages to the remote network?
