    Thanks stif_NEC.
    I had tried all your suggestions before I posted the problem at this forum. On my local network, I can simply type in '192.168.1.4' which is my web server static ip with port 80 and it works fine. From outside world, with urlhttp://70.21.xx.xx, it is always failed with port forwarding 80 to my web server machine.
    Please advise and give me more suggestions/options that I can test it out.
    Thanks.

Use the Public IP of the router or go to http://whatismyip.com then use that IP address on your browser

i.e http://24.x.x.x:80

Or go to http://portforward.com and click on guides and then port forwarding. Then choose the brand and model of your router and then follow the steps on that page.

Hope this helps, gambatte!!

IP Camera Port Forwarding


The best way to find out what is being forwarded is to look at the traffic with the Wireshark program. You can install this from the Internet.

Wireshark is perfect for this but you have to learn how to filter traffic or there will be too much information collected. It is also regarded as (a bit of) a burglar tool so don't use it at work without permission.


I would recommend that you connect a PC to a wired port on the inside LAN and configure the router to forward outside requests to the PC. When you run wireshark on the inside PC with a filter that selects for tcp port 80 (or tcp port == 80) you will see traffic forwarded from the router.

Use your outside machine to request a page from the router's outside address and the port you are forwarding. If you have forwarding set up correctly, you should see a TCP connection attempt. If you are not running a web server on the inside PC, there will be no connection so you will only see the SYN packet from.
outside. If you have a web server on port 80, you will see a fair number of packets in both directions. (SYN -- SYN-ACK -- SYN -- some HTTP Headers an HTTP GET / a response and FIN -- FIN-ACK).

Once you see successful port forwarding (your are forwarding TCP packets, right?) at the PC, change the destination of the forwarding to the camera.

This is really technical but Wireshark is so good that it is quite easy to use.

Port Forwarding on NB7Plus4W router


Some times you will need to open the Logical Ports on the router.
These are the logical ports.
For this you will need to open the set up interface of the router.
Once you open the set up interface of the router, you will be able to find the settings on the router where you can open the ports for the particular program.

If you are opening the ports for a special device in your network, then you must know the IP address of that device.
For example, wireless camera, DVR, X-box, Play station ...
You can choose the option PORT FORWARDING for a special device application.
If you just want to open the ports for all the network, then you can choose PORT TRIGGERING



For example ,
You have a Linksys wireless router and you want to open the ports for the X-box.
You have opened the set up interface of the router. You will see Application and Gaming TAB at the top.
If you click on that tab you will find different Sub tabs.
Click on Port Triggering => Here you can open the port numbers for the network.
Click On Port forwarding if you want to open the ports for a special device in the network.
Click Save settings once you open the ports on the router.

Some of the recommended port numbers for different applications :

IMAP ==> 143 SMTP : 25
HTTPS ==> 443 HTTP : 80
DNS ==> 53 FTP : 21
SNMP ==> 161 TELNET : 23
XBOX ==> 53, 80-88, 3074
PS3 ==> 80, 443-447 ,5223, 3478-3479, 3658, 10070-10080.
WII ==> 28910, 29900, 29901, 29920, 80, 443
VPN ==> 1723, 500, 443-447, 10000-20000
World of Wars ==> 3724, 6112, 6881 - 6999

I have a zyxel p600 series modem connected to a Belkin wireless router. I am trying to run a web server on port 80. The modem was using port 80 for access to the internal settings. I changed that to...


Your setup looks correct to me. It might very well be that your ISP is blocking port 80. Go here and check from your server if port 80 is accessible.

If you are the only one that wants to connect to you server, you can simply choose another port to use, i.e. www.myserver.com:801. Set port forwarding form port 80 to 801 in your router.
TCP&UDP - from 801 - to 80 - [serverIP] - [Webserver]

The better way is to use a service like DynDNS.com or No-IP.com. You can register a DNS name (like myserver.dyn.com), which redirects to your public IP. The trick is to update your IP address, so even if you have a dynamic IP assigned from your ISP, the redirect will point always to your server. Most routers have the ability to set up with DynDNS, so the process runs in the background and you don't have to update manually - check your router manual.

The second part of this beauty is the redirect to a different port. So even if your port 80 (and 25 for that matter) are blocked, you don't have to have an arbitrary number in your URL (http;//myserver.com:801). You can find more detailed information here.

For a quick check, change your webserver to run on port 801, enter the redirect in your router and see if you can get to your server from the outside (internet). If you still can't access the webserver, the problem is not a blocked port.

Hope this helps, but if you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help you figuring this out.

Am trying to set up a Windows 2003 server to serve web pages over the Internet. Have got a DSL line from Embarq. They installed a EQ-660R interface which is really build by Zyxel. I can reach the Internet...


In order to access your default web page remotely, port 80 "INBOUND" must be open to the internet.

To access your web server, two things need to happen.
The first is you or someone else must initiate a http request on port 80 using the public IP Address of your DSL connection.
Second, your router must forward that request to your servers internal ip address.

Ex. Lets say your public ip address is 24.39.45.10. In a browser window from a remote location, you enter the URL http ://24.39.45.10 The request will be sent to your router on port 80.

Your web server will not have the ip address 24.39.45.10 because it's on the private network side of your router. So, lets say the private ip address of you server is 192.168.1.100

You need to configure your router to take the http request coming from the internet on port 80 to ip address 24.39.45.10 and forward that request to 192.168.1.100. This is known as port forwarding.

You also need to configure the host header name of your "web page" so it knows it needs to display the web page.

Since we're just using ip addresses in this example and not an actual FQDN (fully qualified domain name), you would make a host header entry for the web page of 24.39.45.10.

To do this open IIS.
Navigate to the web site in question and right click on it then select properties.
On the website tab, ensure the port number is set to 80 and choose the appropriate internal ip address if you have more than one network adapter in the server.
Next click on the advanced tab and look for the heading Multiple identities for this site. This is where you enter the ip address 24.39.45.10.

If you have a fully qualified domain name, you would enter the domain name instead of the ip address as specified in this example.

Host header names are the key to running multiple websites from one physical server as long as it has the necessary horsepower to do so.

Hope this helps and isn't confising. If you're confused in any way, don't hesitate to ask for clarification.

I can't open a port to show to my web site. This works only localy.


Look at this page from Linksys.

You can see that you want to go to "Application and Gaming", then to "Single Port Forwarding".

You want to setup your router like the first line:
HTTP [you can put here whatever you want] | External Port 80 | Internal Port 80 | Protocol TCP | IP Address [your web server's IP address] | Enabled [tick yes]

In the second line you write exactly the same except you replace Protocol "TCP" with "UDP".
Don't forget to enable both and to save the settings!
You should give your web server a static IP address (not via DHCP!), to ensure it is always the same.

If you have any more questions or something is not clear to you, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Want to configure the router


Ok, IP port forwarding is pretty straight forward. On the firewall configuration screen specify the outbound port and inbound port. The first should be what you want people on the outside to see it as, the second is what you want yourself to see it as. Next, virtual server pages are setup in your web server software, never seen it configured through the router...but it should be essentially the same thing. You specify a web content location if possible this is a physical path; you would need the permissions set to read only for HTML, read and execute for CGI/Perl or DHTML; and then you would setup domain information, etc or leave it blank and use the IP/Port. Finally if you don't change the /etc/hosts file you might run into some problems computer side because your internal ports will be different then the outside ones. This can effect 2 way communication. So you set it so that the address at say port 80 internally is redirected to say 8080 instead. This way whether your outside or instide you can type the address the same way.

First packet in connection is not a SYN packet:


Verizon blocks port 80 traffic to residential customers. If you want to host a website, they expect you to pay for the business service and a static IP.

I am monkeying around with my DNS records on goDaddy to see if I can get http traffic to go to port 8080 instead of port 80. So far, I have not had any success.

I did find no-ip.com, which, for $25/year, will "host" a simple redirect for you, so that when people type in http://yourdomain.com, it actually gets redirected to http://yourdomain.com:8080. That :8080 does show up in the address bar, but I think that's okay. Especially for $25/year.

Port Forwarding for Apache Server


Hi Robmoll,
Let's get a little bit more in detail. I'm doing the same exact thing you are trying to do with a D-Link DI-624 and I'm using NO-IP instead of DynDNS. I'd like to ask you a question, if I may, what are you actually seeing now using port 80 and how did you disable it? Can you connect another PC to the same router (making a small Home Network) and test locally your Apache and eventually your web-page by typing something like this "http://192.168.0.101/"? Are you already able to see your router from the "outside" trough port 8080? Are you specifying your "private" IP in the port forwarding setting of your router? Do you mind showing a snapshot of your port forwarding settings? Here is mine; you see two different IP's because there are two PC connected.

Regards,
GiBi
