I have I would think a relatively common problem around port forwarding to get to our family's web server which is behind a dsl modem and wireless router. Our configuration is: Static IP issued by our ISP assigned to Actiontec GT701 DSL Modem (its IP = 206.124.xxx.xxx). (Actiontec status: DHCP turn off, NAT on (wouldn't work w/o NAT here), firewall = off). Actiontec LAN IP = 192.168.0.1 IP of downstream Tomato wireless router (running on Linksys WRT54GS hardware) = 192.168.0.10. (Tomato router status: LAN IP = 10.0.0.1, DHCP turned on – scope = 10.0.0.49-100, NAT on, Firewall does not appear to be on – only checked box under firewall settings is for NAT loopback and its check “Forward Only”). The web server running Windows Home Server has a static IP address on Tomato’s LAN at 10.0.0.20 (outside of the DHCP scope), I have port forwarding all 8080 traffic from Tomato to port 80 of our home server. The web server properly recognizes the external IP address that traffic is coming in on (206.124.xxx.xxx) but it throws an error when it tests if its visible from the internet. Other web traffic doesn’t make it through either. … ¿
Stuff I’ve tried: I can ping the name of our webserver myfamily’sname.homeserver.
com and it properly replies with the right external IP address -- 206.124.xxx.xxx. I’ve tried putting the webserver on the Actiontec’s LAN – this eliminating the hop from the Tomato router – but I get a password challenge from the Actiontec in that configuration. I’ve tried to set up the Actiontec in “Bridging mode” but according to my ISP – Qwest does not support Bridging on my DSL line (ie requires PPOA among other things…)
Any thoughts on how to get this basic config to go?
Secondarily, we have a second registered domain name, called say:orangedingos.com that also points to 206.124.xxx.xxx. Is there somewhere I can tell either the modem or the router: If traffic is coming in for myfamily’sname.homeserver.
com it goes to the server at 10.0.0.20 and if traffic comes in for orangedingos.com it goes to the server 10.0.0.30? Or Is there a way in the URL one can designate which port it should go to – eg: www.orangedingos.com:8080
? Is this something my ISP can do? Or do will we have to use unfriendly IP address 206.124.xxx.xxx:8080 to get to the right place? Or if I want to use both URLs do I simply need a second IP address?
Thanks for your help !!
