In my log I see tons of messages like these: (I anonymised the actual numbers)
[2:27:25 AM] New location set: a.b.c.d:A
[2:35:07 AM] New location set: a.b.c.d:A
[2:56:51 AM] New location set: a.b.c.d:A
[2:57:28 AM] New location set: a.b.c.d:C
[3:00:52 AM] New location set: a.b.c.d:D
a.b.c.d is my IP address.
D is the port I've selected in the settings many hours before these messages.
A and C are two ports that I've never seen.
It looks like the port is changing all the time, and it goes to the correct port only every now and then.
What is going on here? Why is the location changing like this? The port in the settings is fixed at D.

Same thing here.
I can read in my Network log:
[20:03:24] New location set: 188.8.131.52:11961
--- new ip after I started my VPN, with the port in my config
[22:12:50] New location set: 184.108.40.206:5969
--- new port unknown
If I check my router, an Asus RT-AC88U, I can read in the Port Forwarding log:
Destination Proto. Port range Redirect to Local port
ALL TCP 1962 192.168.1.16 1962

--- last line: the original port, but no trace of the unknown one
In the chatroom Testing, I am reported with the unknown port 220.127.116.11:5969
Using a second location, I started a download of 2 files to see if Fopnu was reachable with the unknown port not forwarded.
And the answer is Yes, and I don't understand how.....
And the speed is not bad: 600 KB/sec thru a VPN.
But how it's possible a port not forwarded is reachable?
I will investigate a little more....
