Question about Routers

1 Answer

Not a SYN packet

Did you ever figure what is going on with this?

Turns out if you access a website via https you'll also have no trouble.

I may pull all of my hair out. I wonder if I can modify my public DNS records to direct people to 8080 instead of 80 for the www record. Hmm. I'll let you know.

    I was posting in response to the fact that you cannot get port 80 http traffic to go through a Verizon Actiontec router in certain cases. I believe the final word is that Verizon doesn't want their residential customers to be hosting websites, and so they block the connection. I can connect to my website on just about any port I want, but not on port 80. So my initial idea was to try to modify my DNS records to point www traffic to port 8080 instead of port 80. I am unable to do this using the goDaddy DNS setup...if there is a way to do it (maybe a SRV record), I haven't figured it out yet. If I do, I'll post it up here...a way to host your own website using dhcp addresses from within Verizon FiOS....it would be nice.

Hi splansing,

This does not seem to be a router issue if you wish to redirect DNS details, more towards a DNS server kinda function (unless you're using a custom firmware like DDRWT) which enables this kinda thing. Anyhow, it is interesting nevertheless, pleae do keeo us in the loop :D

Im using a 2Wire Gateway DSL connected via ethernet to a Mac G4, I also have a laptop running windows vista and it has strong wi-fi connection, sending packets at optimal levels and speed. BUT Problem


Vista has a well known flaw of not allowing you to easily change access rights after selecting "public network" in the initial network connection screens. The easiest fix is to change the name of your wifi access point, reconnect, and be absolutely certain to select "home network" when the prompt comes up.

The best solution however is to ditch that crummy excuse for an operating system and upgrade to Windows 7 or 8.

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.

My company block facebook. is there any way that i can get access?


There might be a way! You can try a few things: 1) try going to https://www.facebook.com - sometimes this works (don't forget the s after http). If this works, you may need to continue adding in the s if pages are blocked. 2) Try going to https://www.vtunnel.com, then browsing to Facebook through there.
If neither of those work, then your company's firewall is doing its job and keeping users off of Facebook! You may have better luck going and talking to your IT Administrator to see if he'll let you on during lunch or break times. Don't get in trouble :) Alex

Wi Fi fine, ISP fine, no internet via LAN connection though.


Make sure your firewall is not blocking your ability to go to websites. I saw this the other day, somehow the users firewall was set to block all internet traffic out of the computer.

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.
