Lynksys Router BEFSR41 v2 -> Multiple Static IP's/ Web Server
Posted on 2004-04-10
To begin with.
I have just received "13 Static IP's" From my ISP.
These Static IP's are all used for server Domains that are running
On my "NT4 Server"
Now here is the problem that I am having, and need some assistance from anyone, or recommendations for a
True Router designed for "Web Servers"
When logging into the Router, and into the "Setup" tab.
I have to start off by assigning the First static IP in the list
for my "Lan IP Address"
So that is done, everything is fine, and I am able to connect to the Router once changing the "IP Address" And other information into my
But then when I go to choose [Static IP] for my outside IP Address
I set it up to the 1st Static IP in the list as well and add in the rest of the information that was supplied from my ISP. (For Gateway/DNS Settings)
Once these changes are made, I then go over to "Port Fowarding"
And once I assign the proper IP Address for the right servers
Mail | FTP | Web ......
And hit [Apply] it gives me a "Page cannot be displayed" Error.
And will not allow me to log back into the router?
So I have to Reset the router and start all over.
So when starting over I try the following.
Instead of having the "Lan & Wan" Static IP's the same,
I have the "Wan" set as the "1st" in the list.
I have the "Lan" set as the "2nd" in the list.
And go throught the same steps, and everytime that I configure the
Port forwarding, it does the same exact thing? So I am at a lost.
What I need to know is the following?
Can the "Linksys Router" use outside "Static IP's" for :Lan & Wan"
And function properly?
Or will I have to look in on getting another Router.
A -> True Web Server Router <-
That is used for outside Static IP's Pointing??
1 more thing, before I leave you too your thoughts?
I have successfully been running the Linksys Router with a single
Static IP from my ISP for over 1-1/2yrs. With no problems.
And have been very successful in everything that I have done with the Router, all the way up to this point, of having "13-Address"
This has proven to be an impossible task.
p.s : For the ones that are wondering how come I need all these
I run a web Server Service, I off web space to clients mostly business's.
And Most of these people need "SSL's" And with WinNT4 you can only have a SSL assigned to the top domain, not to any Virtual Domains.
So this is the reason.
Thank you all
More points will be added with good advice/solutions
