Hurricane h5200 modem/router


I tried portforwarding using portforward.com guide. but the problem is my local area network cannot see my servers using fqdn. other pc (internet, public and other computers not connected to my network that doesnt pass the modem/router) can see my servers.
if i go to my fqdn on my local area network i see the router config page. also other ports that are being forwarded are not working in local area

is there a tweak or config on the router/modem h5200?

i need help anyone?

Hello jmazaredo,

Does your DNS server have your server fqdn in its tables, and does your PC have the address of your DNS server in its lookup table?

One test you can do is to use the hosts file to put the fqdn into and assign it an address this would let you know the the PCs can use host tables to do the translation then this becomes a DNS issue as opposed to a lookup issue and you cut your troubleshooting in half.

In other words edit your hosts tables (hosts file) with the entry (Example 1):

IPADDRESS FQDN ALIAS

192.168.10.2 somesystem.myhome.com. system
192.168.10.5 somesystem2.myhome.com. system2

This as stated will determine if you have a DNS issue or a lookup issue, because the DNS system will use host tables first and the do a DNS lookup.

Once this is done if it works then try this setup:

1) in your router set the DNS to capture the DNS of your ISP (normally the setting will tell the router to use the DNS given to it by the DHCP protocol.

2) turn on DHCP on the LAN side of the connection in the router and set the controls for proxy DNS service (using the router as the local DNS server also called caching DNS server), However set the router up to allow static IPAddreses and if possible to recognize the domain name of the local LAN.

3) set your servers up with static IP addresses and in their host tables set the fqdn up as stated above in Example 1

4) in your PC set the DNS to be the IP Address of your LAN side of your router i.e. 192.168.1.1 and if needed set the host tables of all PCs to the server addresses, fqdn, and aliases this way if DNS fails the system will at least have the host tables to use.

I hope this helps.

Thank you,

Trying to open port 3389 in my firewall. Set for UDP and TCP but the tester program still says that they are closed. I have disabled windows firewall. Still no luck.


Make sure you are doing this for the right ip address. The ip address should be your local computer's ip address and will probably look like 192.168.1.x . To get to this go into your network control panel and click on your connection and view the details to get this information. Remember that every time your router resets this ip could change. I would suggest setting a static ip in either the router or on your computer in question. To set up a static IP for windows xp: http://portforward.com/networking/static-xp.htm. For windows Vista:http://portforward.com/networking/static-vista.htm. For windows 7: http://portforward.com/networking/static-win7.htm.

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

Configure with utorrent


1.) To set up a static Ip address on your computer, click start, control panel, network and internet connections, network connections, right-click on local area network, click properties. In the window select tcp/ip, then click on the properties button.

Since your default gateway address is 192.168.2.1. Click on the selection titled 'Use the following ip address' Your Ip address should be 192.168.2.2, subnet mask 255.255.255.0, default gateway 192.168.2.1. Then in the next section click on the selection titled 'Use the following DNS server addresses' Preferred DNS would be 192.168.2.100 and alternate would be 192.168.2.200. click ok and you are done.

2.) As for the second problem, refer to the following link from the intellinet website. http://portforward.com/help/pfprogression.htm

Configure WRT300N wireless Router to connect internet using PPPoE


Often the nets and subnets are NOT the same.. ie The Fixed connection often uses 192.168.0.1, 192.168.1.1, however sometimes the wifi is setup 10.1.1.1, or 10.0.0.1 etc, have you checked this? Esentially tho ya router is an "Acess Point" and ya Lappy etc is ya "Client" the links below has a lot of tutorials to help have a look. http://portforward.com/routers.htm http://portforward.com/guides.htm
