What software should I use to bypass my university internet restrictions?


If the games are in fact, "yours" then you can configure your game server to publish on the normal HTTP port (80). Then, you will have no trouble at all.

I hope this is helpful,

I want to set up an internet file server how and what software is best


creating web space (internet file server) to store data over the internet or retrieve it from that PC to any other PC in the world follows the same lines as creating a self hosted website, although you arent creating a website, the principal is muc hthe same, i do it myself (but with a website as well) using a miple desktop computer at home..

first things you are going to need to do are:

1. contact your ISP and arrange for a static IP to assigned to your internet connection (if you dont have one already) anbd sometimes you have to pay for it, this gives your file server a SET WAN IP address and means you can access it via IP rather than using a domain.

2. obviously have the file server, and you will need to give it a static IP on the local network, as your ISP gave you one for the external WAN, and then you will also have to setup port forwarding so that any FTP ot specifit HTTP traffic points to the server and is forwarded and retrieved from there, but you will need software to do it, i use a neat little peice of software called WampServer (obtainable here: http://www.wampserver.com/en/download.php)

this should enable you to configure as you please, download/upload/FTP setting to set up a web based storage option, and i must say it is very handy for a travelling tech like myself..

when it is eventually setup, you will use your static IP assigned to you by your ISP as a web address (eg. instead of www.mywebsite.com you will use http:\\152.133.133.133 - this means you do not have to pay for a domain.. awesome!) this is a fairly involved process and if you dont know alot about it already.. i know you will by the time your done! once you have those 3 main things setup;

-static IP from ISP
-Wampserver installed
-file server on network

i can help you out further with more specific instrctions and details if you like.. good luck!

Trying to set up a vpn server on windows XP using


Did you already forward port 1723? I guess you have done that. To isolate it, try to bypass the router and setup or establish the VPN session there. If it doesn't work, maybe your ISP doesn't allow port 1723 or it's just the modem.

Cannot FTP at all behind Thomson tg585v7


Hi, your router will by default block all incoming packets from outside. You need to configure a firewall rule to allow tcp port 20 and 21 from outside and specify that it must be sent to the IP address of the pc running the FTP server software. Also make sure that your FTP server and firewall on the pc allows these ports in by checking your firewall on your pc.

Ftp server


What is the name of the software? Is that an FTP software?
Anyway if you are using DX-E401 Router you can enable DMZ (demilitarized zone) to your PC.

1.access your router configuration page (default ip: 192.168.0.1)
2.go to advanced tab
3.select DMZ
4.select enable then type the ip address of your server pc
5.apply settings

after that have someone try to access the files in your pc.
if the software you installed is ftp software then have them access it by this

ftp://internet_ip

the "internet ip" is the ip address found in the STATUS TAB of your router under the WAN catergory.


If this software you mentioned is using any particular application ports, you will have to open those ports for your server PC.
In that case you will to configure VIRTUAL SERVER. It's the actual term used by dynex. for you to have a general idea how to configure your pc behind your router please go to this link

http://www.dynexproducts.com/skins/skin_1/Topics/Documents/DX-E401_Manual.pdf

Virtual server configuration is in pages 22-23. It has detailed explanation of the terms used.

Hope this helps!

Set up ftp server behind the router


you need to set port forwarding for the correct ports, the default port number is 21. so you need to forward port 21 for 192.168.1.50

then go to www.whatismyip.com

copy your ip and add" :21 " without the " " in to the address so it looks something like this: 85.76.240.1:21

now your friend should be able to login from internet explorer for examble after typeing ftp://yourip:21 or from my computer by typeing ftp://yourip:21 into the address bar.

if you need more assistance let me know. im here to help.
Also if you are intrested we can try remote assistance to solve the problem but I would like some compensation for my time with remote control.

Sonicwall Pro 300 DMZ Problem


If you're within a network and try connecting to computers on it with the WAN public IP, it simply won't work - you must use the network IP. On an external Internet connection, it should connect fine to the public IP. If you have access to an external machine (remote desktop), or if you know of an FTP proxy, you can try it that way. I also believe http://www.webftp.co.uk/ a web based FTP client would act as somewhat of a proxy, you could try that with the public IP and see how you go.
