Hey all,

I have a web server setup with a static IP in my LAN. The modem's IP is 192.168.1.1, and is giving the router the WAN address of 192.168.1.47 with it's local address as 192.168.0.1

I have the westell forwarding port 80 to the router, and the router forwarding it to the server. A port scan shows that 80 is open and accepting connections, and I can connect to the server locally, but not by external IP/domain name.

Anyone have any suggestions??:confused:

Thx,

Nd

I don't get it!! I've tried 5 different ports, which 3 port scanners found open and accepting connections, but I still cannot view my server in either Firefox or IE. Localhost works fine, as well as all PC's on my LAN connect without a hitch, but nothing external can. Here, for all to test...

Hmm, seems like it works externally ONLY externally! That is, from outside my network the site works fine. Interesting.

Hi Welcome to Speedguide :)

You should be posting in the "Routers & Internet Sharing"
forum as more people will see and be able to help you.
I also have the Westel 6100 modem / router combo.
And ya.. from what I found out the same when I was trying to do that
with my FTP Server... the modem / router doesn't support "loopback"
when going out from the router then back into your server.. even
if your ports are opened or "port forward" correctly, and you can connect externally.
I used a dial up isp (juno) to test out the FTP externally.
Have a great weekend.

lol, The reason it's not working is because Verizon Blocks port 80, they do this because they don't want every one to start an ISP or a sever, to get around this you have to go to Business DSL.

Actually port 80 is not blocked (here anyway). I port forwarded in the westell modem, as well as my linksys router. Ran an online port scan and 80 is open and accepting connections. Maybe it's not nationwide, but they're definitely lax on their regs (as well as their speed) down here in TX.

EDIT: And I've spoken w/ Verizon tech support. Servers are allowed in their TOS for residential customers, as is most DSL providers, though it is common for them to block 80.
