Port Forwarding for Apache Server

In an earlier comment regarding port forwarding, this was the response:

"If you were to run a second server behind NAT, you'd need to use a different external port (the internal port can usually remain the same, this limitation only applies to the external port. You could map external port 8080 to internal port 80 on a second webserver behind NAT).
Another option is to use DMZ and open one host behind the NAT entirely for bi-directional traffic on all ports, although that poses some additional security risks."

I have a GT704WG, my operating system is 32-bit Windows XP Home, 1.6 ghz AMD processor and 1GB memory.  I have another device routed to Port 80 tht I can find on using the internet, and I am using DynDNS to kep track of my dynamic IP WAN address.  As I said earlier, this is all working at this point.  I would really like to set up a home server on this machine using Apache.  I am able to install Apache and test it, and it installs/works fine.  However, if I disable the existing device I have on Port 80 and add the Apache server, I can no longer find it, and I get an error from IE.  I've tried assigning an internal IP to make sure that is not an issue, and ibvioduly Port 80 is not being blocked by my ISP provider.  Do you have any ideas on what else I can try?  I'm very interested in the answer you reagrding running another server behind NAT.  Can you post a step-by-step procdure?  I can get my router to accept any 'user' created rules.

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

How can i configure aip w505 for att elevate internet, in order to view my qc dvr


You need to enable the virtual server settings on the AIPW505
You also need to allocate a static address to the DVR within the range of the DHCP address range.
Virtual Server Settings - Selects between enabling or disabling port
forwarding the virtual server. (Default: Disable)
? IP Address - Specifies the IP address on the local network to allow external access.
? Port Range - Specifies the port range through which traffic is
forwarded.
? Protocol - Specifies a protocol to use for port forwarding, either TCP,UDP or TCP&UDP.
? Comment - Enter a useful comment to help identify the forwarded
port service on the network..

I need to access a web server externally via port forwarding. i have a smcd3gnv


Do you mean that you need to access an server on your LAN from the outside world ?

The manual is on the second result of a google search for smcd3gn and the table of contents has clickable links.

The machine you run any inside server on needs a static IP address (192.168.0.11 for example) and you configure the gateway so that your outside request to address and port (http://10.10.10.1:8080) gets mapped to your inside machine's IP address and the port you are running the server on (192.168.0.11:8000) for example.

If you are only using one internal web server just map port 80 to port 80 along with the inside IP and you can omit the port number in the external URL. (If you are running more than one server you should be able to figure it out.) Remember to disable external access to the router's configuration if you do this because that also runs on port 80.

My example mapped outside port 8080 to inside port 8000 just so they would be different. Remember that one outside port can be mapped to a single inside address and port. You can run two inside machines with a service on their own port 80 but they need different ports on the WAN interface.

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.

How do I port forward 80 and do apache home website on verizon westell


As I had mentioned earlier to another gentleman, who had a similar issue; those SOHO routers and modem/routers have issues with their advanced functionalities which includes port forwarding. The first thing you must do is - Make sure 'block anonymous internet requests', is disabled in the router's settings - Go to the following website http://www.t1shopper.com/tools/port-scanner/ - Try to see if there is a service running on port 80 If the port is open (which I believe would be a least possibility), there is something else we are missing here. Get back to me with further observations Good Luck

How To Make a DMZ


A router normally stops incoming Internet traffic from getting on your network, unless the traffic is in response to one of your computers or when using port forwarding. But instead of discarding the incoming traffic or using port forwarding, you can send incoming traffic to one computer on your network by establishing a "Default DMZ Server". (DMZ = humorous reference to "Demilitarized Zone".) This avoids you having to figure out what ports an Internet application wants ? by throwing all ports open for that computer. For regular network operation, NETGEAR recommends you do not use a DMZ. A computer with DMZ loses firewall protection, and is exposed to exploits from the Internet. If compromised, your own computer can attack the rest your network. Instead of DMZ, use port forwarding, as described in How is Port Forwarding Configured? However, the DMZ server feature is helpful: * When you have a problem connecting to an Internet service. Setting up a DMZ will determine whether a closed port is responsible for the problem. * With some online games and videoconferencing applications that are incompatible with NAT. Follow the procedure under your router model to create a DMZ To Create a DMZ for RP614, MR814, FVS318, FVM318, WGR614 1.

Port Forwarding


Port forwarding is a method that allows you to run a server behind the router. Port Forwarding opens a specific port to a computer behind the router, allowing all Incoming Traffic on that port to be sent directly to that server. It should be used to setup servers behind the router, typically Port Triggering (Answer ID 344) is a better choice for non server applications (Such as instant messengers and game servers). Below is an example of how to setup Port Forwarding. For our example we will be setting an FTP Server and a Mail Server that uses SMTP and POP3. FTP uses ports: 20 and 21 SMTP uses port: 25 POP3 uses port: 110 Getting Started 1. You must set a static IP address on the server. If you're unsure of how to do this please go to Answer ID 534 for information on setting a static IP address in Windows. 2. Once the static IP address has been assigned please go to your desktop and double click on Internet Explorer (Located on the Start Menu in Windows XP) 3. Once "Internet Explorer" opens, please type http://192.168.1.1into the "Address Bar" and click GO 4. The "Enter Network Password" window will appear. Skip user name and type admin (admin is the default password) as the password, and click OK 5. This will bring up the routers "Setup" section. Look under "Domain Name" and check what version of the firmware you're using. 6. You will need to click on the Advanced tab to the very right. Once the "Advanced" tab comes up please go to the Forwarding tab. Firmware prior to 1.32 This will not work with firmware prior to 1.32
