SpeedTouch routing: cannot connect to certain ports remotely over internet
Posted on 2004-08-25
I am currently using the SpeedTouch Pro router with AOL broadband. I am trying to set up a web server and connect remotely via telnet and ssh to my 2 machines (pc runnning win xp and pc running linux). I signed up for dynamic dns since AOL do not provide static IP.
I have configured my NAT settings on the SpeedTouch router to open up ports 23 ,22, 80 etc etc respectively but on the inside IP address, I got confused so I assigned each port to the computer running the particular services ie. I assigned port 23 to my XP machine (telnet) and port 22 to my linux box (ssh).
I have tried accessing it from work and no luck, it cannot get through, however, it can ftp my network remotely. Bizzarre.
I also tried port scanning from work and it showed that all ports are filtered even the ftp, although I managed to get into it ok.
i am a newbie in networking, anyone with any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!
