port forwarding for a device on port 80 with verizon fios actiontec

small business with fios internet service and Actiontec router.

there's a heating control system that they get to from inside the office at http://192.168.1.5 (static IP).

The page loads and they admin that.  They want to get to that page from outside the office.

that would be using port 80, since there's no colon and port number after the 192.168.1.5, right?

we open port 80 to forward to 192.168.1.5 and it doesn't work, canyouseeme.org says it's closed, etc.

Maybe fios blocks incoming port 80.  So can't we use a different port outside and when something comes in on that port in firewall, it will change to port 80 on the LAN?  

How would you do that in the firewall?  Sometimes in the rule,  you say port 80, sometimes 8080, sometimes any, right?  any help would be appreciated!!

You cloud log into your Verizon Actiontech and go to firewall settings and do a dmz, with a public ip address you log into the device by just using your public ip address make sure you have static ip as well for the public that you get from Verizon it's self.

Thanks.  I forgot about DMZ.

I set the static IP of this device in the dmz host page of the router then

from a machine outside the network, I  typed in http://their.public.ip.address  but the page didn't load.

let's assume they block port 80 from the outside?

So here is the rule I set up in port forwarding?  I'm envisioning being able to type http://their.public.ip.address:2222 and that would forward to the device (it's static IP on the LAN is 192.168.18.9 )

That doesn't work either.

Is my format for the rule OK?

something we noticed - in the my network pages in the router, this device is not on the list .  But is that just DHCP clients?  This machine is outside the DHCP pool / no reservation for that device).  should not being in the list be a problem for the port forwarding?  Or DMZ?

thoughts?

The device wont be reachable from the internal network after the DMZ, try the public ip address plus :80

example: 72.21.23.44:80

or

http://72.21.23.44:80

If it's port 80 you need that should work.
