Access Tomcat on Solaris 9 through Linksys router
Posted on 2004-04-07
Hi everyone, thanks in advance for any help or comments.
I'm having difficulty accessing a tomcat server from outside our office network. We are on high speed cable. I have no problems connecting to an IIS server on a windows machine. Our office has an ip say, 126.96.36.199 and I'd like to be able to view the tomcat machine from the outside world.
We're running tomcat on port 8080 on a solaris computer in our office network. The internal address is 192.168.1.200. When I go to 192.168.1.200:8080 it works fine. When I go to 188.8.131.52:8080 it works fine when I am inside the office. When I go to 184.108.40.206:8080 from an external site, or say I use a dialup account. It doesn't work.
We have a linksys router BEFSR11 with the latest firmware. Router settings that have been tried.
- making the DMZ 192.168.1.200
- forwarding port 8080 to 192.168.1.200 port 8080
- block WAN request (disabled)
I think that this could have something to do with the solaris configuration and needing to put the external ip 220.127.116.11 somewhere but obviously, I'm not really sure.
If someone could point out what I can do to get this working I would really appreciate it.
