View Full Version : NETGEAR WPN824v3 port forwarding problems

My netgear router won't allow me to access my WAN ip (ISP provided)
address from inside the LAN. I have a web server running on 192.168.1.5
and port forwarding set to forward HTTP traffic to that ip. Outside
access works fine but if I try to access the server (or FTP, etc) from
inside the LAN I am shown the router login prompt in which case I can
either log in to the router or cancel out which results in a 401
Unauthorized Your client does not have permission to get URL
/cgi-bin/check_hijack.html from this server. The url bar in firefox says:

http://www.myserver.com/cgi-bin/check_hijack.html

obviously the latter part of that url is for the (located on) router but
why would be trying to get it from my server if I don't authenticate.
Further, even if I type in:

http://my.ip.add.here (the address assigned by my ISP) it still does the
same thing?

Since outside access works as expected, I know the port forwarding is
really working... something seems hosed on the LAN side...

I have the same problem with my Netgear WNR2000 wireless/wired router. I've been swapping e-mails with Netgear Tech Support since 11/23/2000 and still haven't come up with an answer. I sure hope we find a solution soon. I host websites and maintain them. It's a bit hard writing code when you can't see the results from inside the network.

I'm having the same issue with a WPN824v3, firmware v. V1.0.7_1.0.8NA. Were you ever able to find a solution to this problem?

No, only workaround is to set entries in your hosts (linux .hosts) file
to point to your server.

Hello

Your speedguide.net forum has seen fit to crosspost to the
alt.comp.networking.routers newsgroup without the slightest clue what
was in the original thread.

Please repost with your own detailed description of your own router's
problem.

Thank you.
