Question about Actiontec GT704WG Wireless Router (gs583ad3-01)
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.
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.

Before You Start
Telnet into the Netopia router's Main Menu at 192.168.1.1 (if using the default IP setting). If your network has a different IP addressing scheme, modify this accordingly. Click Here! for instructions on using telnet and Hyperterminal (serial connection).
Login with the user name and password. The Superuser login is required to save changes. If you are unsure of this, contact your network administrator.
Don't forget to press the Enter key to save any entries. Hitting the back space, delete or tab without first hitting enter will undo any changes.
The Esc key will take you back towards the main menu screen.
Once you have completed your configuration, you should reboot the Netopia to save and apply your changes.
The Netopia Main Menu Interface
Server List Configuration
You have now configured your router for TCP/UDP port forwarding. If you have a switched connection (ISDN or Analog), you will need to either disconnect and reconnect your Internet connection, or restart your router for the Nat Server List changes to take effect. If you wish to filter traffic for your static IP mappings, please see the following Netopia Technote:
