Http access I am hosting my webserver on my LInux box. I have set up my router to push http requests (port 80) to my Linux box, but when ever I type in the IP address of my router, all I get is the main page for my router.

    That explains http, but what about ssh or ftp? I doubt that my router has ssh or ftp running. I didn't have to do this with my old dlink wireless router.

    It turns out that these wireless routers/modems will in fact, redirect requests on any port to any ip on the network, but, if you make a request to http, it doesn't matter where you are hosting your http server, it routes right back to your router login page, but only for request made internally. External requests work. So what I had to do what add an entry to my local hosts file to force the router to use my Linux box's internal IP address. I set up dyndns to know about my router, turned on the dyndns update component in the router and all was good with the world.

Router cannot forward tcp requests to linux box if it has a http server already running on the same port. Make the router's web server listen on a different port.

How do I change the NAT setting to open?


Hello and welcome to FixYa.

My guess is that you are looking for port forwarding (eg: port 80 to host a webserver, or maybe a utorrent port for torrent downloads).

These are my suggestions for this issue in general (Assuming you first logged in to your router administration panel. Usually located @ address 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.254 depending on manufacturer can be located underneath the router on a sticker, along with the default admin console password and username):

1. Please enable UPnP to set NAT to open.
2. Goto the port forwarding section (might also be called Virtual server section etc.) and do a port forward using the IP of the computer you need to open port to, with TCP port 80 or 8080 or utorrent port or the number of the port you may need in general.

Please tell me how much did that help you.

More info on this matter that might be helpful can be found==> here

Thanks.

Open port 80


To open a port on a router involves several steps.

1) Log into your router from your browser, this is generally at address 192.168.1.1

2) Type in your username and password (this varies from vendor to vendor)

3) Once logged in, go to the Advanced Tab, and then click on Gaming on the side menu.

4) Under the Add Game Rule, put the name, IP address can be left blank, and then set ports to open to 80.

5) Save changes.

How to forward website to belkin n1 vision router


You would have to log into the router to configure port forwarding on port 80. You would have to know the IP address of the computer hosting the website and put that in the routers config under port forwarding.

Enabling port 80 access


You will have to go into the main page of your router, type 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 in your address bar of your web browser.

When you log in look for an option that says "Port Forwarding". In this page you will have to enter the port you want to open (80) and then type the IP address of the computer you want to receive the port 80 requests.

****PLEASE NOTE: If you are trying to open port 80 on a residential account, CALL YOUR ISP first and verify this is possible!

Why?

Port 80 is an internet port. People who use this port generally do stuff such as hosting a website. Most ISP's block port 80 for residential customers because they do not want them having that kind of traffic coming in. If that is the case, there will be no way for you to open the port. You will either have to use a different port, or upgrade to a business account. Just an FYI so you don't go crazy!

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.

Webserver inaccessible from lan


This is default behaviour of port forwarding on ADSL routers.
You need to create a local DNS entry in your machine, which will resolve the domain to the LAN IP of the web server.

Can't configure router for Domain name and DNS


dns= domain naming service or something alike...
you don't have normally to anything to your router other than allowing incoming traffic to port 80...once you do that, you should be all set..frrom your computer at home if you type your domain name, your pc actually goes to the internet clowd and accesses you new domain name based on the info gathered by dyndns...then comes back to the ip that your ISP assigned you and hits your webserver...

A couple things to consider;
keep an eye on the ip assigned to you by the ISP..if it changes by DHCP your webserver won't be seen by the outside..

on your side of the home network, assign a static ip address, don't use dhcp as well to avoid the same problem on the pc that you have the webserver. your router should allow you to allow traffic on port 80 to your webserver computer, which has the static IP...
if it does not, buy another one

Cannot view local webserver


go to http://www.whatismyip.com/ and then have them type in that ip address. if you have had them typing in your internal ip address that will not work. Try the ip that that website tells you is yours. Also do you have it forward port 80 to your computer? also you should set up DHCP reservations for the server. Hope that that helped.
