External Remote Web Workplace access problems

I'm having a problem with remote web work place

Internally I can use https://remote.xxxx.org.uk/remote to access rww
Externally I can use router static ip https://xx.xx.xx.xx.xx/remote

I would like to use https://remote.xxxx.org.uk/remote externally

Any help would be appreciated

You'll have to add a static DNS entry of the internal IP to your router or firewall & reverse host it in DNS. For instance if you can access https://remote.xxxx.org/remote inside the LAN, add a public IP to your router or firewall such as 69.x.x.x & have it point to the IP of the URL inside your LAN.

Thats sounds good. I could do with a little more help though.

I have a Vigor2820 router and 5 static IP addresses available for use so that's not an issue.

The internal IP of the URL is but how does the router know to use rww?

"Externally I can use router static ip https://xx.xx.xx.xx.xx/remote"  so, this works...  I assume that you have a registered domain name on the Internet?  

Does this work?


If not, can you ping somename.yourdomain.com?  Maybe you just need to create an A record on your Internet DNS for somename = xx.xx.xx.xx  where xx.xx.xx.xx is the your public IP address?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

In other words, this might be a simple registration issue and not a router issue...  
Yes, you have to have the static entey in DNS...Do you or someone else host your DNS?

The web site is hosted by 123 reg. The domain is registered and Server 2008 creates the remote.domain.org.uk/remote web site locally.

We can access RWW by using the IP address/remote.

For anybody else with similiar problem the answer is to create a DNS "A"  record called Remote in the DNS section of your ISP and forward to the external IP address of the router.
